I really need help, my daughter is 9 months and biracial (1/4white, 1/4latino. & 1/2black) and for some reason there is one spot on the back of her head that we can't seem to keep it from drying out. No matter how much oil or hair products we put on it, her hair will just soak it up and within a hour or so it will be extremely dry again. We have tried vasoline, pink oil moisture, blue magic, pretty n pink lotion, and sooo many more, all with the same results, her hair will soak it up and become dry all over again. It doesn't matter how many times a day we put it in her hair. Also note that the top portion of her hair doesn't dry out at all and has the most beautiful curls and everything it's just the back portion of her hair. ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED

stay far away from oils, vaseline, and the pink hair lotion. from personal experience (im black and white but my hair freakishly resembles a hispanic woman) all those things are TOO much for my type of hair. my sister used to put that pink hair lotion (shes got the "typical" mulato hair) but anyways the more oil you put in it isnt going to help much either (i have my hair liscense too). Hair can feel dry because it is overly moisturized. Also if its the back of her head then it might be the sheets that soak up the moisture too. Cotton sheets do that thats why black women were silk scarfs cause it helps maintain the moisture. Try using Carol's Daughter products. i use it on my daughter and stopped using baby shampoo (which has too much degerent and dried her hair out too)

try the sulfate. it's in the white and yellow jar. It had worked wonders on ALL 3 of my daughters.

Try Ms. Jesse's products....buttercream it is wonderful. As an African American mom dealing with a daughter who is mixed it was a challenge meeting her hair needs; however, once I found this product it has worked miracles. All of the stuf you have been using toss it...that is not what she needs. Hope this helps.

Nicole is absolutely right! If you have tried all of those products and nothing has worked, it is from the rubbing around, tossing and turning on the sheets. almost like a rug burn, but in her hair. She loosing vital moisture on sheets and whatever she is sleeping on. Use Satin pillow cases or sheets, bc I doubt that she will wear a head wrap. Good luck
