My husband is Gambian and has very tight curly hair mine is pretty straight. My 6 month old has very soft straight hair. Just wondering when/or if other babies hair started off straight and if it stayed that way or when it turned curly?

My son is mixed race. I am myself mixed race and his father is white. He was born with light brown very straight soft hair. over time it started to get a wave to it and as he started to move more and lost his hair around the back and sides as they often do it started to go very curly on top and people would call him a mini Mr T lol. His "dad" wasn't very happy about it and cut it without asking me :-( after that it grew back curly again but thicker and has gradually over time (hes now 2 years 9 months become very tight afro hair with curls its very short as its so tight its hard to even brush daily without it wet n conditioner in

It varies from one child to the next, I believe. I am Black-American w/ tight curly hair that is in dredlocks. My husband's hair is very straight. My son was born w/ a full head of hair that was jetblack & straight. None of his hair ever shed. He had to get his first haircut at 6mos.(& I nearly had a breakdown) because his bangs were so long & straight in his face. His hair had a little wave to it as it got longer but it was still in his face. I tried braiding his hair to keep it out of his face but it was too straight & wouldn't hold without a lot of holding gel; so I had to give in & let my husband take him to a shop that specialized in children's haircuts. He videotaped it because I didn't want to go watch it. My son is almost 5yrs. old now & we keep his hair short. Maybe later on, when he gets older he may want to grow his hair long. He looks like he could pass for Latin or Middle Eastern; he's actually black & white.

My son is 5 months old and his hair was straight as a board and long, I could put it in a perfectly tight mohawk! It's all fallen out and it's just a very soft fuzz (looks like my hair when I was a baby just brown) and then ontop it didn't fall out and it's a little curly when wet and it's starting to curl. We'll see what happens

My husband is from Cote D'ivorie and has tight curls in his hair, which is why he wears it short. I'm white but I also have very curly hair. My son was born with a ton of black straight hair. It is my husband's culture to shave the baby's hair at 1 week old. With tearful eyes we shaved his cute little head. It all grew back...THANK GOD...but when it grew back it was so curly.

My twins were born with straight hair. Daddy is black and I am white. My son's hair is dark brown, and my daughter's is auburn! lol It curls when they wear hats. They are only 4.5 months old, so it will be interesting to see what happens in the next 6 months.

I was told at the hospital when I gave birth to my oldest that all mixed babies (mulatto's) are born with straight hair. It depends on how soon they will lose their babyhair on how soon the curly hair will come.



My daugther is almost 8 month now and has long thin straight hair. My son didn't get curly hair befor he was about 1 1/2 year old. I shaved his hair whan he was 7 month old, and the new hair grew very slow.

My daughter is 5 and a half months now and she has straight hair eventhough it is starting to curl a bit on the top. My husband was born in the Gambia but his mum is from Ghana so he also has very tight curls. I have a little bit of a curl in my hair my self so I am hoping she will get nice curly hair :-)
