Natural Hair and Mental Health: Boosting Your Child’s Confidence

Confidence is Key!

Did you know that haircare is a great way to boost your child’s self-esteem and protect their overall Mental Health? When your child has some kind of physical injury or pain, as parents, it's easy to recognize what you need to do or who you need to see in order to make sure your child is healed. But recognizing your child’s mental struggles can be pretty difficult. According to Mental Health America, when children are in a good emotional and mental state, they are able to think more clearly, develop socially, and learn new skills. But low self-esteem can hinder your child’s mental health and have a negative effect on their overall perspective on life. One of the best things parents can do for their child’s mental health is “nurturing children’s confidence and self-esteem”.

Protecting Your Child’s Mental Health

Physical and emotional health are very closely related. The American Psychological Association says that “both physical and mental health affect how we think, feel and act on the inside and outside” and the foundations of your mental health developed during early childhood have an impact on your mental state throughout adulthood. This is why it is extremely important for parents to contribute to their child’s mental and physical development.

Healthy Hair Builds Confidence

Textured hair is oftentimes stigmatized for being unprofessional or hard to control. Skylar J’s LushUs Kids is helping parents encourage their kids to value and appreciate their curls and coils! Healthy hair is not only a sign of good health, but it can also help build your child’s confidence and self-esteem. Psychologist Dr. Vivian Diller explains that many people “associate confidence with feeling in control, and hair is one way most of us can be in charge”. Having your hair done gives one a sense of control that reinforces the positive thoughts they have about themselves. In this way, parents can instill positive values about their child’s hair, appearance, and self-esteem by making sure their kids’ hair feels healthy!
