Curl Care Vision:
The Curl Care Project has been developed to address the needs of individuals in inter racial families in the care system. Anyone looking after children who are from ethnic minority and mixed heritage backgrounds are continually challenged with maintaining the hair and appearance of the children under their care. Excessively curly hair needs special handling and if this is not addressed from very early stages the damage can be critical, including Alopecia and Dermatitis. In the long term this will have a hugely negative effect on a self-esteem.
For people looking after children outside of their ethnic background, this can be a daunting process, our aim is to educate and train parents, families & carers to have the skills, understanding and confidence to ensure that the children they look after all have the same experience when it comes to grooming, styling and presentation. Although children seem to be unaware of self-image, this is clearly not the case and is in fact key to building their self-confidence, emotional well-being and helping them integrate into a new environment.
