We know that in its own make up,  curly hair is dry, unruly and can be difficult to manage..  these struggles are real..

Most of the time it’s  the wrong product using adult and supermarket products a big no no,

firstly Adult products are harsh, full of nasties, one  analogy I use,  you wouldn’t use wrinkle cream on you children’s skin? why would you use adult haircare on their hair?  even the kids supermarket products  are full of  the bad stuff they should’nt be on the shelf! the reason Kids/Tweens are not oily until they are Teenages, so drying them out before they have chance to be oily.

curly hair needs losts  of moisture, starting with shampoo conditioner then a detangler, here’s why

Shampoo will cleanse the hair and the scalp it’s important to have a healthy scalp as this will affect the condition of the hair.. the shampoo opens the hair cutical the conditioner closes it  thus conditions and smooths making the hair easier to manage, curly hair only needs washing once a week, detangler  can be used daily to help with bed hair and detangle, never spray with just water as the water will dry out the hair even more,  as the water evaporates this will make the hair frizzy, this is why we use a detangler because it keeps hair conditioned once the hair is dry.

MopTops haircare is a salon exclusive range and designed for Kids/Tweens making it less painful to manage their hair..

they are kind to your Kids/Tweens sensitive skin and hair, made with the finest natural  ingredients with awesome fragrances,   no colours no nasties and proudly Aussie made

Dads Swapping Tools For Hairbrushes

During the week, Tapping roof tiler Peter Waldock is a typical tradie who enjoys a banter with the lads.

So, he admits his workmates would be surprised to see him on his days off, hairbrush in hand, perfecting intricate braids.

But Mr Waldock only needs to see the smile on his six-year-old daughter Courtney’s face to know swapping power tools for de-tangling spray is a worthwhile decision.

Mr Waldock is part of a growing number of dads who have been learning hair styling along with their young daughters

“It’s been awesome,” he said. “I’ve been doing a lot of stuff with my son and his sport so I just thought it’d be something good to do with my daughter.

“I think it was one of the best thing you could ever do as a dad and daughter with the bonding time that you get.”

Noticing an increase in working mums and single dads, hairdresser Christine Gaskell started the classes to give dads the confidence to take charge of the school runs as well as special occasions, including dance classes.

At weekends, Ms Gaskell’s Carramar home salon is filled with the heartwarming and sometimes comedic scenes of dads getting used to negotiating partings and hair elastics.

About eight dads attend the classes every fortnight.

Starting off with brushing techniques “to avoid whiplash”, they soon progress to elaborate buns and festive hair-dos.

While the results might take a few weeks to achieve, it’s the quality time which is the focus, with dads dedicating the morning’s session to much-needed one-on-one time with their daughters.
