Before having Jayden, we decided that we would not give him haircuts. We’d let his hair grow out and if he decided he wanted it cut when he got older, we’d allow it. His hair growth is pretty much at a standstill. I’d like to be able to style it in braids and twists, but I realize that without a routine and good products, his hair will not grow. For a long time he only had bangs because his hair fell out due to cradle cap. So considering, his hair is now full and in great condition; just not as long as I think it could be.

His hair is soft with a pretty nice curl pattern. It stays dry and since he likes to roll all in the carpet, it attracts lint and whatever else.

We had the opportunity to try Sof n’Free n’Pretty GroHealthy products. The products are catered towards children of various ethnic groups prone to specific hair or scalp problems: shedding, thinning, temple and nape damage, breaking, and chronic dryness. What won me over is the fact that the products are made with natural ingredients and contain no mineral oil and petrolatum. While they are not 100% “green”, they are an affordable solution to higher end natural hair care products and can be found in various local stores.

We’ve been using GroHealthy products for two months and have received pretty good results as far as moisturizing is concerned. I usually start by squirting a few drops of the Growth Oil with Olive & Soybean Oils into my hands and I massage it into his scalp. That is followed by massaging in a few dollups of Olive Oil Growth Lotion. Next, I add a little more Growth Oil. Then, I gently pick or comb his hair and scrunch his curls with my fingers. Twice a week, I use the Thick and Healthy Olive Oil Cream in place of the Olive Oil Growth Lotion. I usually will do this after washing and conditioning his hair for extra moisture.

Here’s a before and after shot of his hair once dry and full of lint and then after a wash, condition, and GroHealthy treatment with the Growth Oil and Olive Oil Cream. As you can see, his hair went from looking a little rough to nice and moisturized with a healthy shine.

GroHealthy doesn’t magically get rid of lint; that I had to pick out myself :).

Overall, I am pleased with the products and how they perform. I do wish they didn’t contain parabens. I’m on this mission to a greener lifestyle, but I realize I can’t always have my cake and eat it too. I plan on trying out more natural hair care products, those of which may be higher end and sold online. If I’m in between purchases, I know I can grab GroHealthy as an affordable solution.

Price: Olive Oil Growth Lotion 8.8oz ($5.99), Thick and Healthy Olive Oil Cream 8.8oz ($6.99), Growth Oil With Olive & Soybean Oils 8.8oz ($6.29)
Green-worthy Stats: GroHealthy products are not 100% “green” but they are made of healing, growth-enhancing natural ingredients such as aloe vera, almond oil, nettle, arnica, shea butter, rosemary, silk protein, soybean oil, sunflower seed oil, tea tree oil, honey, vitamin e, and olive oil. They contain no mineral oil and petrolatum. Parabens, however, are present.

Extensions, chemical use, braiding and even everyday brushing and combing can damage your little girl’s fragile, young hair. Now you can restore and repair it with new GroHealthy.

    This product is great in my hair. If I am wearing a prny tail it holds my hair so slick in place. Much better than freeze gel which dries my hair.

  2. Jessica says:

    My oldest daughter (16) has that hair that just wont grow. It gets right to her shoulders and just breaks off. She has never really had a real hair cut, it just wont grow. I am gonna have to check into this stuff.
