- [Raven] Hey guys, what's up, it's Raven and Ziya.
And today, we're here with Ziya's updated
curly hair routine, including how I wash it, how I style it,
what products I'm using and what new techniques
we have incorporated into her routine.
So, if you're interested in seeing how I do Ziya's hair,
then just keep on watching.
So, the first thing I do, of course, is just take
her hair down from the previous hairstyle
that it was in, usually it's all kind of matted
and crusty and dirty because we have moved
from washing her hair two to three times a week,
to now I only washed her hair once a week.
So, I tried to keep it in sort of like protective styles
throughout the week while she's going to school,
and it definitely gets dirty, dusty and sandy.
So, I just start by cutting out the rubber bands,
taking it down, kind of finger combing it
and fluffing it out, and just getting it ready to be washed.
Another new thing I have started to do is washing her hair
in the shower, with the actual shower head instead of just
in the bathtub with pouring the water on her.
I just find it easier, I've just been teaching her
how to take a shower, she pretty much knows how to take
a shower on her own by now.
Of course, I don't let her do that but it's just easier
to let her lean her head back and get her hair wet
on her own and then, I can shampoo her hair.
The shampoo that I'm using is the Cantu Kids shampoo.
I have switched over from the previous L'Oreal No Tears
shampoo that I was using before.
I just wanted to switch to something that was sulfate free
and everything like that and just better for curly hair,
so, I really like this shampoo so far.
So yeah, now that Ziya's is two years old,
I just find it much easier to do it standing up
in the actual shower.
Also, because I can stand up next to the tub and wash
her hair and not have to be kneeling over
and bending over down so far,
it really hurts my back when she's sitting down
in the bathtub.
So, this is better on my back and it's usually
easier for her.
She was acting kind of silly because we were filming.
Usually, we don't have any problem with her
just leaning her head back and rinsing her own hair.
This time, she was being a little difficult
and acting a little fussy, so I did have to help her
prance and wipe face.
So, after shampoo is of course conditioner,
and I'm still using the same Aussie Miracle conditioner
that was in the last video, I just really
like this conditioner, I like the fact that it has
a pump on it, too.
So, I'm just applying a kind of heavy amount of conditioner
to her hair, and just raking it through
with my fingers first.
But, since I am only washing her hair once a week now,
I do like to kind of deep condition her hair.
So, I have added in this Garnier Fructis
One-Minute Hair Mask.
This is the goji extract flavor, they have like a bunch
of different flavors or types of this hair mask.
This is just the one that I like because it smells good.
But, I applied this to her hair on top of the
conditioner and really finger comb that,
let it sit for a few minutes, I can kind of let her
play with toys in the bathtub, or just let her do her thing
while I let it sit for like at least five minutes.
And, this is kind of just deep conditioning
her hair for the coming week.
Next up, before I rinse any of the conditioner out,
I like to de-tangle her hair because de-tangling,
with all of the conditioner and the hair mask in it,
is going to make it so much easier and smoother.
And, I have switched from using just like,
a regular wide tooth comb to using this wet brush.
It's like, literally called The Wet Brush,
so it de-tangles pretty good.
You can also use like a Denman brush or something like that,
but this little pink wet brush is just really cute,
and it works really well.
It makes the de-tangling process go a lot faster.
Of course, I just start at the ends of her hair
and work my way up, and just keep going until the hair
is nice and smooth like you see here.
Ziya's hair is definitely growing,
I have gotten some questions about what I use
to make her hair grow and I don't use anything special.
I just make sure that I keep it moisturized
and take care of it and that's it.
But, I don't use anything special to make her hair grow,
but it is down to like her mid-back now.
So now, it's time for the final rinse
to rinse out all of that conditioner.
And, like I said, on a normal day,
this would go really fast she can basically do it herself
and just lean her head back and rinse.
She's acting kind of silly, like I said,
so I had to help her out, but yeah.
So, I'm just rinsing out all the conditioner,
making sure there's no residue left over and then,
we're gonna get out, do a light towel dry
and then, move on to styling.
So, the first product I'm going to use to style her hair
is the Curly Cuties Leave-in Detangler spray.
I actually was gifted this in PR from Sally Beauty.
And,I actually really like this spray because,
when you spray it out, it's like a creamy,
white consistency, even though it is a liquid spray.
So it's really a good conditioning detangler,
it's not just super watery.
So, I've been using this lately, and I just sprayed that on
just to comb through her hair one more time.
I did detangle it in the shower
but it still needs to be detangled again.
So, I spray that on first and comb through it.
In Ziya's last hair tutorial, you guys saw
that she was just sitting there, talking,
letting me comb her hair, making conversation.
Now, she does get a little bit more squirmy,
so, I actually had a Peppa Pig playing on my laptop
in front of her, so that she would sit there
and let me comb her hair.
So, don't feel bad if your toddler doesn't sit still
to get their hair combed, mine doesn't either.
Next, I'm gonna be using the Mane Choice
Green Apple Kids Leave-in Conditioner.
I know it kind of seems like I'm going ham
with all the different conditioners,
but like I said, this is a once a week thing,
so I'm just trying to make sure that we're good.
And this one is actually a leave-in cream conditioner,
unlike the spray, which was kind of more of a detangler.
So, I just applied this all over her hair just to make
sure, sure, sure that it's moisturize.
And, lastly I'm gonna be using the Camille Rose
Naturals Curl Maker, Marshmallow and Agave.
This is like a jelly, more so like a gel,
so it's going to actually add hold to her hair.
I'm putting this on because I do want to
kind of slicked down her edges,
slick her hair into little ponytails and also,
make sure that the curls hold their shape.
So, starting with the actual hairstyle,
I'm just parting it down the middle first.
That's pretty much how all of her hairstyles start
because I like to keep it very simple.
And then, I'm just parting it down the side,
going towards her ear like so.
So, I'm gonna be creating two ponytails on the front top
of her head.
And so, I'm just using one of these kind of like
wave brushes, I think it's called a boar bristle brush,
I think, to slick her hair down and really
smooth it into place.
And then, I'm gonna use one of these little
soft baby scrunchies to tie it up with.
I've been using these little soft scrunchies
more often than the rubber bands,
just because these are more reusable.
It's a little bit easier for me to actually
take these out and reuse them,
rather than like cutting the rubber bands.
But sometimes, honestly, I do still have to cut these.
So, I mean, they're cheap I got them fora couple dollars
at Walmart for a bunch of them.
But yeah, so I'm just slicking her hair
into two ponytails in the front first.
And then, actually, I can kind of just comb
the back of her hair and let that part
just be down, and this can be hairstyle number one.
So this is one hairstyle that I could do.
I'll probably only do this hairstyle if we were
going to dinner or going somewhere fancy,
only for a couple hours, because I really don't
want her to just wear her hair out,
because it will start to get matted
and messed up really easily 'cause she plays hard.
So, I definitely don't really, usually let her hair
be down when she goes to school or anything,
maybe for a special occasion, she could wear it like that.
Hey guys, sorry to interrupt, but if you like
what you see so far, why don't you consider subscribing
to my channel?
It's free and it's fun, you can join the squad
and you won't miss out on any of my future uploads.
And then, just to kind of transform this into hairstyle
option number two, I'm just gonna continue that middle part
going down the back of her head.
And, I'm going to create two more ponytails
in the back her head, using the same little pink scrunchies.
So, this is obviously really simple,
just dividing her hair into four parts and then,
making four ponytails and I'm just kind of
combing them through, so the curls can pop.
And, that's pretty much it for hairstyle option number two.
So, this is a really fast hairstyle that I would
typically do for school.
And, it lasts maybe two days, looking decent,
and then, I kind of have to take the rubber bands out
and re-slick it and redo it for school.
But, I don't really have to add any extra product,
I just kind of spritz it with water and redo
the ponytails, and just kind of leave it like that.
And, for the third and final little variation
on this hairstyle, I'm just taking the two front ponytails
and twisting them up into little bantu knots.
So, you just twist up the ponytail and then
twist it around itself.
And, I'm using a smaller, little plastic elastic
to hold that into place.
So obviously, just doing on both sides and it just creates
these cute, little bantu knots in the front.
And it's just a fun variation on this hairstyle.
Also, if it's getting a little frizzy or something
and I just kind of want to twist it into a bantu knot,
so it looks more slick and clean, you know what I mean?
It just kind of helps keep her hair into place.
And also, if she wears it and a bantu knot
for the first day, than I can take it out
on the second day, and it's kind of like
a bantu knot out or twist out.
So, I like doing that and that has been also another
hairstyle that she's just been wearing
every day for school.
So yeah, guys, that is Ziya's updated curly hair routine,
along with three really simple, easy hairstyles.
