My daughter is 14 months old, and is half white and black. Her father who is black, is no where to be found, and I honestly have no idea what to do about her hair... I didnt know you have to treat her hair differently from mine!! Her hair is so soft, and so curly.... but its so crazy!!! Its not long enough to put up.. and when I leave it down, its everywhere... Is there something I should be putting in her hair right now? I have been using plain old Johnson baby shampoo.... I was reading not to shampoo hair everyday........ Oooopppsss.. I guess I should stop that.. I have no idea what Im doing! Someone please help... Any advice is going to be helpful! Everyone says I was in for a big treat, once I have my daughter... I guess they were right. lol.

Thanks!!

Go to a hairdresser that does ethnic hair and get a consultation on products to use for you daughters hair. That is my suggestion.

My daughters hair isn't super curly but it's fine, wavy/curly, frizzy, and gets very tangled. My favourite products I've used on her hair is the "mixed chicks" children's (or adult) hair care...(shampoo, conditioner, detangler, leave I'm conditioner) and I also put some "morrocanoil" through her hair. (You can get these only from salons or beauty supply outlets) if you can't find morrocanoil (blue bottle) then check for Marakesh oil by earthly body.

My daughter is 7 so Every now and then I'll also treat her hair with a homemade olive oil mask...you can find lots of different recipes online... I usually just use pure olive oil and let it sit for 15-20 minutes then wash it out. Your daughter is still pretty young ...not sure if you'd want to try this as well but it might be helpful in the future :)

Be careful as well not to over wash it which will forsure cause dryness :) Getting hair trimmed regularly is also good to keep hair from getting dry at the ends

I love this on-line product called Atomy. It is a herbal shampoo that works wonders leaving hair soft not like the other chemically treated shampoos. I actually do not shed any hair in the shower!!!
All of my friends and family use it. Product is very reasonable.
Only thing,someone has to sponsor you for membership.

Use coconut oil as advised below,m especially in the winter time. During the summer, put small amounts of oil in her hair, and make sure that you brush the nape area to avoid hair bumps. Do not pull too tightly as this will cause balding and bumps. The longer you keep to a simple routine the better condition her hair will be in when she reaches the teenage years and wants to experiment (as all girls do) with her hair. Puberty will also cause changes in your daughter's hair. A short hair cut is manageable, but two french braids wrapped (try to google hair wrapping) will also present more style options. There is nothing more beautiful than a child's natural hair. My mom, who is Filipino had some of the same questions. Now, based on experience a hair pressing once every two months is similar to a hot oil treatment can actually help the hair because it imparts uniformity and less stress on strands. But go to an experienced hair stylist (in big cities there are easier to find) who knows how to analyze and style black and multi-ethnic hair.

my daughter is bi-racial (black and white) he hair is very soft and curly. I wash her hair once every three days and then put pink lotion in it to keep her scalp and hair from drying out. It works well for her. Just make sure you only use about a dime size drop. if you use more than that if will weigh down the hair and make is greasy

Last thing and I'm done for the day....If you even think about using heat on the hair you need to use a heat protectant spray so there hair will not be furthered damaged.

http://www.longhaircareforum.com/forums/... - here is a website I frequent very helpful information.



 



Below I posted what others thought of Pinks lotion and Why it is so bad...So it's not just my opinion.



 



Also let me give yall some input why Pinks lotion is a big nono-



 



Mineral oil is a no-no on this board because it prevents moisture from getting into the hair shaft.
 know I'm not the only one who had the big bottle with the pump! I was applying it multiple times a day, and the more I applied, the drier my hair got my hairdresser even mentioned how dry my hair was. so, of course, I'm like how is that possible with as much pink oil I'm applying, she was like that's exactly why it's so dry, because of the pink oil.

she was like, don't you notice how often you're having to apply it! it was doing the complete opposite of what it was supposed to be doing. everyone's hair is different; but, for me, it was the devil.



__________________ used this back in the day and it was just gross. It made my hair wet, limp, greasy, and smelly. I can't believe I used it for so long and I firmly believe it did nothing for my hair but make it look a mess and coat it .




Me and pink lotion NEVER got along. It would leave my hair with huge flakes plus it caused me to have a lot of build up. After reading the ingredients, I understand why.


Mineral oil is a "no-no" in maany places; unless, of course you want it for your auto. Seriously, for hair, I can not think of a need for it. The molecules are too large to penetrate the hair to do any good. It's not unsafe, as much as it is unnecessary for hair care.


Um, well I am right along with you. I just can't believe with all the labs and researching companies do that they don't know that this stuff is bad for our hair. Well, I am convinced that they do know but they want to keep us continuing to spend money and coming back to them trying to buy products that we are led to believe we need to make our hair grow or keep it from being too short. Most of our hair is already short anyway but we don't want to be *gasp* bald so we keep on buying this thinking we are caring for our hair.

It seems as if a customer who bought a product that doesn't work, would stop buying it and go somewhere else. The problem that comes with many black women though is we don't understand it is not working and think that our hair is meant to be no longer than shoulder length so if we think this, then we have no idea that it might be *gasp* the products that are marketed towards us. Add in not knowing that oils don't moisturize and other hair care knowledge and you have a huge company profiting off the ignorance of a whole group of women.

another thing if you want to learn how to braid forfree without waiting on someone to show you...grab a coffee or what have you  and goggle this stuff and youtube has great videos on how to conrow or braid. these are things you can learn for yourself. practice makes perfect. Biracial hair is trial and error issue. once you use on product if it dosen't work then move on to the next thing.

One more thing...If any of you can braid or plait not conrows but just plain plaits. This would be helpful at night so there hair would not be tangled up in the morning.

HI ladies I have not read all your post but I am very into having Healthy hair for myself and my children.



I want to let a couple of you know about a couple of products I see you are using....First I would cond wash there hair once a week and by cond wash  I mean you put conditoner on dry hair let it sit and wash out...reapply cond let it sit and wash out. this will not only detangle but moisturize the hair.  The next thing is that the curlier the hair the dryer the hair is going to be so it needs to constantly moisturize. So how I moisturize my daughters hair is...Motions Leave in conditioner and then I apply organic virgin cocnut oil or olive oil not alot but just enough to seal in the moisture.



So the straighter the natural hair texture the less moisture you need the curlier the natrual hair texture the more oil you need. How often do you see someone with natrual straight putting a leave in or oil in there har.



 



 



I see a couple of people using pinks moisturizer..I personally would not use that because it can clogged thier pores in the scalp in there hair and it creates massive buildup. curly q's product is good for biracial hair. that product can be googgled and also bleanded beauties products also. I HTH for now and I will try to add more of my input. later



 



Also remeber what works for one childs hair may not work for another.There are so many hair textures you are dealing with. So just keep that in mind.



 



Also i would stop shampooing the hair so much. it dry thier hair out they don't need thier hair washed out like adults do unless they are profusive sweaters or play at the beach everyday. So i would start cond wash  only shampoo on a as need basis- like when you see alot of buildup. Let me know if you have any questions and i hope i was helpful.

Try using some Pink Lotion. You'll find that in the African American Hair Products section in stores...like Walmart. Or go to a Sally's. You can apply it while it is wet or dry.

Might want to check out www.naturallycurly.com too.  If her hair is anything like my daughter's, it is way too soft for any "black" hair products, but she likes to play with it and puff it out into a misshapen afro!  I'm waiting for it to grow long enough to braid!

You can also take her into a beauty supply store. Where I live we have a place calld Sally Beauty Supply. The ladies there are pretty helpful. My daughter is almost 6 she has a ton of hair and very high maintenance! I take her in there all the time. The ladies always help me out in trying and finding new products that might work well in her hair. Her hair has changed a lot since she was born so we have tried many products!! Just keep trying new things and you will find what works best.

my daughter has beautiful curly hair and the best thing we put in it is called Pink Lotion. You can get it at Target or walmart. It's a lotion to keep the oils in in. Also it's best to braid her hair at night if she has enough of it. You don't need to french braid it, just regular braids. It helps to keep nice for the morning and you don't have to do as much when you do it. Also use detangler, not water. Water just breaks the ends. Your daughters hair doesn't have to be hard to do, just keep it moist with oil based products from the "ethnic" hair section.

lots of good advice. my 20 month old has similar hair - long curls in the front & sides and the back is a rats nest!



I leave in conditioner after her bath - combing it through. Use the spray bottle & conditioner when I fix her hair in the morning (always wakes up with bed head no matter what) I'll try putting conditioner in the spray bottle - good tip!



I have a leave in curl smoothing creme (a turquoise bottle) I got in the "ethnic" hair section at the drug store. it's for kids - and works great. I tried a curl activator spray but it made her hair crunchy and I hated it - and after reading this, it possibly would have dried out her hair too...



My MIL told me when I married her son "you better not have girls - white people don't know how to do black hair" Maybe so - but her hair isn't quite "black" hair either, and I'm not sure what her hair will end up like over the years - but I'm certainly above going to a salon!



Good luck ladies - and thanks for the great ideas!

I use Panteen for women of color it is in a brown bottle. It helps alot. You should only wash it like once a week. Unless something horrible happens....LOL ( we have all been there). And make sure and put lots of oil in their hair or it will get very dry. When my girls are little I use this lotion it is called JUST FOR ME the sell it at wal-mart and it is really good. It is for little girls and smells like strawberries . It works good when they are little. Hope it helps

You can get the ASoft & Beautiful  Just for Me Texture softener at Walmart, Target, even the regular drug store.   You have to look in the black hair care section.  However, make sure the relaxer is grown out -- if not, her hair will only break more.  Also -- although you think it's already short, take her to get a trim.  This will also make a difference in dialing down the frizz!

I have a 7 year old mixed daughter (half black & white). When she was young I had a friend who was also mixed, with the same soft, fine extra curly hair my daughter has. My friend told me all she used was a little condtioner and water worked through her hair and she was good to go. She had gorgeous hair and said it really wasn't as much work as evryone makes it sound. I have found this to be true with my daughter. The only thing I would highly suggest is that you be sure to brush your child's hair daily because it just makes it so much easier the next day! Good luck all:)

my 18 month old is Black and White, thankfully so are my cousin's children. I am counting down the days until my daughter has enough hair to get professional braids. In the mean time, I wash her hair once a week with "Silken Child" shampoo and use a smidge of "Baby Love" lotion on it every morning and comb it into pigtails. My cousin advised that I avoid any de-tangling products that contain alcohol and to go to Sally to purchase inexpensive appropriate products

Hi Charlene... I would recommend going to a hair care forum, like www.longhaircareforum.com they can explain a LOT about dry hair. It also needs to be treated from the INSIDE out... so needs to be consuming a lot of water to keep her body hydrated, then the hair may need protective styling... braiding, buns, bantu knots...whatever she can to keep her ends from being dried out. She sounds like she needs a nice protein and a deep conditioner w/ oil (found grapeseed and peppermint oil to be the best) ... Most of these products can be bought at GNC (oils) and Sallys Beauty Salon. The more you know the better it will be...


Quoting Charlene:

Hello. My daughter is almost 11 years old and I've been having problems with her hair since she turned 1. She is half white and half black. She has very thick curly hair. Because I didn't know how to braid or what to do with it, I started getting it relaxed when she was way to young. Even thought it helped for a few years, and her hair grew long and looked beautiful, it all backfired. After one of her relaxers her hair started breaking off and falling out. It was terrible. I stopped having anything done to it for a while. Then I started dealing with it being so dry. After a while I found a new stylist that has been doing her hair but for some reason it is still so dry. We put product in it, and it looks fine for a few days after we wash it, but after that it's back to looking dry. The other problem is, since her hair fell out and broke off we have not been able to get it to grow. This is very frustrating...especially with her turning 11 and getting to the age where her appearance matters. Can someone please offer some advice??????

I also liked the Mixed chicks products. And her hair looks awesome right after we use them. It 's just the next few days. Prior to her hair falling out we pulled it back in a ponytail alot. Now it's not long enough so she wear alot of headbands. The curl is so tight underneath the back at right at the scalp on the sides of her head (by her ears) that it hinders it from laying down very well. I sware when her hair grows it grows out, not down. Is the texturizer in a box and something that can be bought at Walgreens and if so, do you apply it yourself? I honestly like it when her curls are just loose. I don't like the totally straight look. Please let me know more about the texturizer and I will look into the conditioners from Curls. Thanks!!!!!!

Curly hair is dry hair.  You have to keep a leave - in conditioner in.   I have two girls, both with very different hair.  One has very incredibly thick curly hair; the other is less curly and more dry.  For my curly one, I used a texturizer (Just For Me) instead of the relaxer.  What it did was soften her curls.  I then use either the Curls products or Mixed Chicks to condition and style and she is able to wear it out naturally.  I like the Mixed Chicks better, but the Curls smell like coconut and my daughter likes the smell!  For my other daughter, her hair was less curly, but more dry.  So I use a product that has olive oil in it on her hair.  She was in braids for a while, but recently begged me to let her hair out like her sisters.  So now she wears it in a ponytail.  For your 11 year old, I would try the conditioners from Curls.  I think you would like it.

My daughter in mixed she is half black 1/4 Greman and 1/4 Mexican. Her hair is really soft and really really curly. I have the same problem with her. When I wash it, which is about every other day. I use detangler then I put mouse and a gel that makes the culrs more defined. That helps keep it from that fly away look and keeps it from looking like one big puff ball. Other than that I do not do much with it. If if had had a different texture then I would have to be calling my in-laws for help because I would not know what to do.

[deleted account]

I feel your pain! My daughters hair used to be crazy!!! Her hair however is not a soft texture, her brother was lucky enough to get that hair. When she was a baby I used alot of pink oil moisturizer in her hair and it kept the curls looking really pretty and just pulled it back in a headband. That should help with soft textured hair. As for my daughters hair, now that she is older I flat iron it and keep it braided when it is not down. Only wash her hair once a week, bi racial children need that oil in their hair as to not dry it out. I hope this helps!

[deleted account]

Hi RaeAnn! Your daughter is beautiful. I have 2 daughters and the oldest one has hair similar to your little girls. We wash it twice a week but condition it every bath. and then we use an olive oil detangler in it. Don't get me wrong-It's still crazy and curly (LOL!) but it looks cute and it's manageable. When she was younger we would just put a little barrette in it to keep it out of her face. It will get easier to do as it gets longer -I think the key is just to keep it moisturized.
Hope this helps!

My youngest daughter, 16 months, is bi-racial and has beautiful hair, soft and very curly.   I use a spray called Soft & Precious.  I spray it on her dry hair until it's pretty wet and comb throgh it.  It really helps get the tangles out and leaves hr hair curly, not frizzy, but not oily.

and one more thing...while my oldest child's hair is difficult and time consuming, I use that time to just talk.  She is 14 and that is the one time I can sit with her and have alone time.  As she gets older it may feel like a chore to you (and to her sometimes) but just think of it as a bonding time.

My daughter is 1/2 purerto rican & half black, as myself. I use Olive Oil products on her hair. The 1 which I use is sold @ Target and Walmart for like $4.99 a bottle. It's called Olive Oil: incredibly Rich, oil mosturizing hair lotion .... made by organic root stimulator. The cream is light green. I hope this helps. And yes, wash her hair twice a week @ the most.  ALso need leave in conditioner .. and once her hair grows longer, part into sections and braid, before she goes to sleep. The main key is to keep her scalp oiled ... and not with Vaseline !

One other thing is to get them in the habit of having their hair done at a young age.  The sooner the better.  I started with my daughter at 6 months old and she is now almost 5 and doing her hair is just part of the day and she doesn't fight me on it at all.

Hello RaeAnn! My son is also bi-racial. His hair was shoulder length and ringlets before I decided that it was time to cut it (3years old).  Do you have any black girlfriends who would be willing to help you? The best thing that you could do is have it braided down. I had a lot of offers from friends to help out, and gladly accepted. I've found that shopping in the ethnic hair aisle at Walmart became a past time with me  :-)  Buy the children's products though.  Also, Neutrogena puts out a good product called Triple Moisture Leave in cream (and shampoo to match)......I've found that to be a good product as well.  Hope that this helps, I haven't read any of the other advise on the replies yet.

I've found that shopping in the ethnic hair aisle at Walmart became a past time with me  :-)  Buy the children's products though.  Also, Neutrogena puts out a good product called Triple Moisture Leave in cream (and shampoo to match)......I've found that to be a good product as well.  Hope that this helps, I haven't read any of the other advise on the replies yet.
