my fiance and i both had curly hair...my hair went wavy after my daughter was born and was real curly before then. My daughter has some pieces of straight hair and some curly pieces. it's kind of cute...she has straight bangs and the rest of her hair is wavy with curls at the bottem. I tell her she stole mommy's hair =]



based on your description, I think your baby will have curly hair.

My daughters hair started off straight then became wavy. Now its a full head of curls at 2. Her hair only became that way at 1 and its still changing. Her father's hair is barely wavy and thick. Mine is thick and nappy. I don't know where the curls come from.

Hiya, I'm pretty sure if you both have curly hair then that gene will be dominant and she will grow curls when her hair is longer. I'm also going to take this chance to ask a question! My boyfriend and I are expecting. I am black\indian with 3c-4a curly hair and he is black with thick hair. What are the chances of my baby having my hair!? Thankyou !

Your chances are fairly high. My sons hair is just now starting to curl at the top and he is 3 months on jan 9th!
