The last thing a foster child needs is to go to school with improperly cared-for hair. The emotional experience of changing homes and possibly schools is enough for them to deal with - without the concern of their appearance as well.
We also realize that understanding how to care for ethnic hair is not knowledge that every foster family has.
To assist with this, Matthew’s Child has partnered with local salons specializing in ethnic hair care. These salons offer training in the basics of caring for and styling ethnic hair, discounted products and free trims and/or shape ups for children in foster care.
