About This Episode

Hair care is a hot topic, and can sometimes be a daunting and confusing task. What are some safe haircare products we can use on our child? What’s the youngest age a child can get a perm? How do you communicate positive beauty and hair messages to your daughter? In this episode, our featured guest is Patrice Yursik of Afrobella.com, and she will share her thoughts on child hair care best practices.
