There is a product line out there that specializes in curly hair care for black or mixed races. It is called Mixed Chicks. You can try to order online, or if you find Mid-K anywhere near you, they make carry the product and samples there. Also, try washing her hair once a week with a shampoo and conditioner, and then co-washing (where you wash the hair with just conditioner) twice to three times that week. Try conditioners with oils in them... coconut and jojoba are excellent. Pantent Pro V Relaxed and Natural is awesome. And look into buying moisturizers like Mane and Tail. Section parts of the hair, and rub that into her curls at night and toss on a satin cap for her to sleep in. Before leaving the house for the day, also try an oil sheen spray on her hair. It probably seems like a lot of work, but black hair care is an important thing. Once you are able to find out what works for her, things will get a lot better! Good luck!

I used to use Luster's Pink Oil Moisturizer on myself and my children... I wasn't fond of the residue that it left on the hair. Even when trying to shampoo, it took so much shampoo to try and get the excess residue off of our skin and scalp. As a stylist, I realized that that wasn't right and had to go with something else that was still moisturizing but didn't necessarily leave a waxy residue substance on the hair shaft.

Hawaiin Silk!!!!! I swear by it, check out my kids pages. I take a lot of pride in how well I take care of their hair. I also braid their cousins hair and help take care of it. But I get for my oldest daughter who has really tight curls the Just For Me conditioning detangler to help comb through her hair and than the Hawaiin Silky keeps the frizz away and and helps the curls dry with out freaking out if you want to leave them down. Also don't EVER put gel or hair spray in your babies hair, it dries it out so bad. Pink lotion is good, Motions is pretty terrible though and they both have a funny texture, I like stuff in spray bottles like Hawaiin because it keeps an even amount released into your hair. :) Good luck!

My daughter, now grown, used to use Frizz-Ease. Her hair is too light to use what works on her brother. He uses Pink Lotion or Liv, both from Sally's. Also, never rub dry or blow dry her hair. It adds to the frizz.

My daughter's have long beautiful ringlets that can get pretty dry and frizzy and I used Pink on my daughters hair when they were younger. Now they are older and sometimes they like to wear their hair natural and we just recently started using some products from Carol's Daughter and love them-we use the hair milk and hair sheen from C.D. and it helps define those beautiful curls. Pink is less expensive but if you are able to try Carol's Daughter I highly recommend it!

I use lusters scurl activator moisturizer for my son. I spray it in after his bath and then pick it out and his hair is nice and soft! It's cheap and you can get it at walmart!!

Mizani is a good brand. They have a moisturizing curly hair line. You don't want to use oil on the baby's hair. Use a leave in conditioner and You have to put the hair lotion or cream in the hair fresh out of the shower and then let it completely air dry without brushing or combing. What this does is allows the hair to wet set itself in its natural curls

My children are mixed with black,mexican, and white. There hair is curly, but thick. The texture is similar to that of white or mexican peoples hair (for a lack of a better phrase). I am not sure of the texture of your baby's hair, but on my children I use Aussie styling gel to keep their hair in place. I also use John Fredia frizz ease to control the frizziness when the weather outside has humidity in it. You'll more then likely have to try different things in order to find whats right for your baby. I went through a lot of different hair care products before I found what worked for my children. Good luck!!

I use the baby line of hair products from Curls (www.curls.biz) for my biracial 2 year old daughter. They have a whole line of products for babies, kids and woman. They are a little expensive but so worth it! Instead of having the frizzy hair my daughter has defined ringlet curls :)

What I've learned is you can't blow dry their hair. What I do with my daughters hair is, spray in a leave-in detangler when it's still wet. I brush it out, then I put some mousse in it and tossle it a bit. You can let it air dry and it won't frizz out over the course of the day. It keeps that wet look until the next morning when, of course, you have to do it all over again. I know it's kind of tedious, but their hair is SO CUTE when you do it this way and after a while, it'll conform to the way you style it.
