my daughter is 7 she is black, hawaiian, and cuban and I have been trying to find products that are good for her hair. I read somewhere that the hair grease is not good for her hair and that products with olive oil in it are not good either. It said coconut oil or jojoba are good for mosturizers. I guess what I was wondering is if any one has any suggestions on products I could use for her hair.

I only use Nutress Hair products on my family's hair. We are all mixed with different types of hair, but the prodcuts work for us all!

The one I am referring to is called Affinia. It's a botanical zero sulphate Shampoo and Conditioner. A 12 ounce bottle of both lasts our family of 4 about 3 months because it's super concentrated.

Hi Crystal,

My children are multiracial - black,chinese, Carib indian, Eukranian, Austrian.



Both kids have multitextured hair and the BEST products that I have found for them can't be purchased in the regular department stores. and the price is SOOOO reasonable.

Hi Crystal.



My daughter is 17. She is African American, Caucasion, and Native American. It took a very long time before she found the right product. her Father's Aunt told her she needed a lot of hair "Grease," but a white stylist at the inexpensive hair salon I took her to a cople years ago told her she didn't need all that grease. It was clumping in her hair and formed big white bunches... I had told her several times she shouldnt use so much, but she wouldnt listen... She stopped using that grease, and last summer, another family member told her about the "Olive Oil?" line? It really helps her. She has tight curls, but never has dandruff anymore, and her hair is very managable now..



Good luck!

I'm biracial myself. Mum's english (white), dads jamaican (west indian) and I have very curly hair. I can say i've tried literally everything out there. I really don't like to use 'grease' per say because it really weighs mye hair down. What I find that works wonders for me is, Pure Coconut oil (you can buy it in the baking aisle in your local grocer..i got mine at kroger for 6 bucks and so far has lasted about 3 months with barely half gone!), extra virgin olive oil (also available at the grocery store), moroccan argan oil (found a cheapie @ walgreens on sale for $2.97!), infusium 23 Leave in and aveda smooth infusion. Normally after I wash (burts bees mango shampoo...sulfate free) and condition (organix morrocan argan oil conditioner) I comb mye hair lightly, then put about a quarter size of conditioner all throughout. Normally, i would apply each product separately, but to cut back on steps i put just a small amout (adjustable with the length and thickness of your hair) of the olive oil, argan oil, coconut oil, leave-in, and the smooth infusion into a small spray bottle and spray all over mye hair, then scrunch a little and WA-LA. I've always had trouble keeping mye hair moist, but this works wonders! Not to mention, it defines mye curls and keeps them soft. (i hate hard hair from gels or mousse.) Mye best friend is white with 2 biracial (blk/white) children, and it helped her with her daughters hair, so hopefully it'll help yous guys!

I used a product called "S Curl" on my son's long curly hair when he was growing up. With this product - his afro-y semi-course curly hair would turn into curly locks like Shirley Temple! Worked wonders. Was suggested to me by a African American Salon in town. Don't think we would have made it through his childhood without it!

My son is now almost 18 and has dreadlocks, so we're in a different ball game all together!

From your photos it looks like you both have lovely curly hair. For my son I use a product called "motions" which I spray lightply on his hair for a detangler before brushing it. By me we have several stores that are for various beauty products (sallys is the I go to). Ask what the ladies suggest, then google it.
