LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Adoptive parents of black children can often struggle with the work it takes to keep their child's crown healthy, styled and maintained.

The owner of Rare Naturals Hair Sanctuary in Las Vegas can help.

She's teaching the importance of caring for black hair to transracial adoptive parents, mom's in interracial families and even black moms who just want to learn more.

"Black hair is a lot more fragile than straight hair so the foundation is important," Rare Haynes, owner of Rare Naturals Hair Sanctuary said.

Rare is helping adoptive mom's like Denise Novack, who adopted two black girls.

Novack encourages all transracial adoptive parents to seek help for their child's hair, if they don't understand how to properly take care of it.

"I'm excited for my girls to be on this journey to learn how to keep their hair healthy."
