With all there is to do, remember, and learn around adoption, sometimes hair care is the last thing on your mind. But when adopting transracially, it’s pivotal that we know and understand the importance and history of hair care. Fortunately there are incredible people in the world like LaShanna Bruce. She is the founder of Mommies and Curls, which helps adoptive and foster parents with black kids meet their hair care and culture needs.
We would love to encourage everyone, but especially foster and adoptive parents to black children, to listen to this podcast to learn from LaShanna as she shares invaluable wisdom on how to care for your child’s hair, help answer questions about verbiage to use when speaking of your child, and how to help them confront questions of identity.
