Another hair question.

[deleted account] ( 12 moms have responded )

Okay, I know there are lots of hair questions but here's another one lol. I'm white, my son is half black. He's only six months old and his curls are starting to tighten up, they aren't quite frizzy but kind of in between. My question is should I be putting conditioner in his hair already? If so, what kind? I have only seen shampoo in the baby section and I don't want to screw up his hair lol. I feel kind of dumb but I've never had to deal with this before! Any help would be appreciated.

No baby oil, No petroliums, no parabens! I use Carols daughter products only. The are all natural products and a little goes a long way. Believe me. I have been through the ringer with my daughters hair! Hair milk is the best for the little ones!

You can try oil-free Luster's pink hair lotion. Also, there is this product called mixed chicks you might want to try.

I use Kinky-Curly or Carol's Daughter. Luster's is ok but it takes a long time for my son's hair to absorb it for some reason.

Yep, I use the just for me products on my two daughter's hair. They are biracial and both have tight curls, but my older daughters hair is really frizzy and it works well!

Yes put conditioner! I am using curly q which is working out great! I have heard about carolsdaughter and some other ones I can't remember the names of, but the best advice I got was from the owner of the beauty supply store I went to for the curly q's... "It's a journey... and you are going to find out what works best for you and what doesn't. You will find out what it is and end up trying a whole lot of products until you find it." Basically she was saying not all hair is alike. A lot of ppl raved about curly q and I heard/saw very good recommendations on it. Just make sure you do your homework before investing in a product because you are investing in their hair for the long run. What you do with it now determines how well it will be later... so I have learned. GOOD LUCK and I hope you find something that works for you and your baby!

i second the Carol's Daughter recommendation!!!! the hair milk. i put a pea size in my daughters hair (shes black white and puerto rican) with no conditioner. I stopped using baby shampoo though because there is too much detergent in it it started to dry her hair out.

I used to use the "Just for Me" leave-in products you can find in any ethnic hair care section when my daughter was about a year old and she is also black and white. She has looser curls on top/sides and tighter, dryer curls in the back. If you try the products, don't use very much. Just put a very small amount in your hands and rub it into his hair, adding a tiny amount if more is needed. Oily products go a long way. Good luck :)
