My daughter is half black and white, she's 3months old today and I was just curious when I can expect her hair start to change. Her hair is still relatively straight with some waves right now. It usually curls after a bath and with humidity (too cute hah :) ) My boyfriend said that his nephew (100%black) had straight hair like our daughters until he was 6mo old and then it changed, this sound about right?

See this is what I mean. Good hair? Oh because my hair is kinky it's not good? Your an idiot. So non kinky hair is better. So that makes you feel better than someone because of straight hair? Told you guys. This is prevalent with whites or non black people. Unbelievable folks. They are not saying it, but they def do believe straight hair is superior! Lol. Idiot. Oh and just because your kid is mixed (because of course you made sure they wouldn't have "real" kinky hair by marrying white or other race (that's another story), kid is not superior to a black kid lol. You black people who hate being black are laughable. I mean, really? That's why you LOVE to say " my kid is HALF black, half whatever. Like that makes YOU something special. Black community you know I'm right. We talk about this all the time. Lol. Idiots.

It sounded to me that the original post suggested she was hoping her child's hair to change to be more curly/kinky/wavy-whatever! Many white people DO NOT think they are superior! It is all genetics. We are called the HUMAN race; we are all the same. Biologically speaking, you, Bre, have more in common with me-a white woman-than a black man! Really! The reason why she was saying her child is mixed is to get a perspective of the child's future hair texture. Guess what? My husband is white and I am white and I am trying to figure out my child's texture. I am hoping he does not have my straight thin hair. His dad has thick, very curly hair. Oh BY THE WAY, I have a white friend that has very kinky hair. She actually has to go to black stylist to ensure her hair does not get ruined. LOL..genetics baby! We are all the same!

My son is half black half white. His hair didn't change until after his first haircut at 14months. It's different for everybody. My sister's girls' hair all changes after their first birthday too. It may not changes at all.

We have two daughters and the first one had fine straight black hair until she was 10 months old, then it began to have wispy curls. By the time she was three years old, it changed again and was spiral curls (large curls) and now that she's 14 years old, it has a loose wave even when it's dry; but, that's probably because it's so long now, but, it's past her waist.



The younger daughter had thick jet black straight hair until she was 3 years old and then, it just has a loose curls to it.



My husband is white and I'm black and Indian (and the list goes on) :-) haha

My son's hair never changed. He has always had Caucasian hair. My children are half white half black. My daughter's was straight and began to form waves when she was about three but never completely curled.

My little girl's hair was straight until she got to be about 8 months old. Now it is so pretty.

thanks all. some were confused and made it seem like i'm concerned about what her hair will turn out like that's not it at all..i just wanted to know the time frame when the hair usually changes to it's permenant look. But it seems like this varies from 6-15mo, i guess when it happens i'll share with other moms who have the same question ha :) thanks again everyone

It does sound about right my daughter who is 15 (will be 16 in December) had straight hair until she was 6 months old and then it got curly but she always had a strand of straight hair by her ear it was weird. She now straightens her hair for she hates her curls and most kids do and will.

my son is the same race mix and he was born with straight dark brown hair, is really started to stay curly after 6-8 months and really thickened up about 12 -15 months. Now, he is 19 months and he still has thick soft curls, there's a patch on the back of his head that is much thicker than the rest of it (only mom & dad really know that) you ca't tell by looking at it. So far not as course as daddy's hair yet.

Im mixed, black and white. I had stright hair for a while, at least untill I was able to sit up and from my baby pictures i went threw the wavy hair stage the same time my son did. Just i waited a year and three months to cut his hair and my mom cut my bangs. Dont, please i beg you dont cut your babys hair till shes a year, i had frizzy bangs till i was 18 and i did everything, i straightened my hair, i litterally shaved my head when i was in 10th grade to get rid of my moms hack job from my baby years. Dont cut the babys hair before a year. My husbands white and im mixed, He wanted to cut my sons hair and i wouldnt let him, my son now has soft, straight hair that i put a leave in conditioner in the pink stuff so it dosent get fuzzy. My daughter i pray to god her hair color or eye color wont change my i know her hair will be the same way, its turning out like her brothers. Please dont cut the babys hair, its the best thing you can do for that hair, and then leave in conditoner. I found as a child mane and tail worked very well and it smelt good. :)

My daughter's hair got curlier as it got longer. I don't know if I think it really changed as much as it wasn't long enough to curl the way it wanted to. I think it was at about seven months that it started to thicken and the curls got super tight, like they are now.

My daughter's changed about a year or so. Granted, she didn't have much hair til then, lol. I'd say the second half of her first year, you'll start to see the changes. But it can chage again... thankfully, my daughter has hair i can still work with, but my cousins have children who had soft waves when they were little and it hard-core kinked up later on... It's fun to watch the changes tho!

My daughter was born with pitch black hair like her father, and in her second month I started wondering about the colour. She lost nearly all her hair and has now got very dark blond hair. She used to have the cutiest curls at around 1 year but as her hair grew, they lost their nice shape. So we had to cut them.

My little boy had nearly no hair at all. And as it grew, it began curling more and more. It's now really curly, a bit Shirley Temple-like (soft curls like from permanent waves, not African curls) and some shades darker than mine.

not yet but I don't think his hair texture will really be different from mine. Mine's slightly wavy. His hair is straight and blond. I guess he'll probably turn dark by 2. Most of my family turn dark haired by 2 years old. He could get soft curls like his dad but I don't know when.

[deleted account]

I never could understand why these type of questions come up. what difference does it make what their hair looks like. I am a mother of a bi-racial child and i never worried what his hair would look like. let me tell you that you will have more issues to worry about other than what their hair looks like.

My emmy had a head full of jet black straight hair. Everyone thought she was asain when she was born.
After a few washes her started getting curlier and curlier so by the time she was about 3 months her hair was full of big ringlet curls.

Well I'm black and white. My hair started out straight and brown. Around grade school it got a little wave then high school it got like those springy curls. My sister was complete opposite from day one she had super tight curls. My kids are all completely different. My daughter was bald until about 2 years old. Now sues got think dark curly hair. My son started out with long black little bit curly hair until about 1 year old. Then it turned light brown and straight and thick. My newest son has light brown straight hair. He's only 3 months. Every kid is unique. That's the beauty of mixing things up. You never know what ur gonna get but they are beautiful and gorgeous.

The hair question lol my son hair changed at arond 10 months. He has southern european type of curly hair it is soft. Your daughters hair might stay the same or become like my son hair. My friend has a mix baby his hair is more towards black people hair but not as tight so you never know.

[deleted account]

My son is half black and half white too. He was born with tons of soft, wavy, black hair all over his head but there was more on top so it was like a faux hawk all the time. Since then he has progressively been getting rougher hair, tighter curls and it turned brown - in some places it even looks blonde. When it comes to these types of things I've learned that it totally varies from child to child. The whole time I was pregnant everyone said my son would look like my ex because apparently Jamaican features are usually more dominant. My son looks exactly like me, has pretty light hair, blue eyes and is still fairly light skinned. I think it really just comes down to what traits your daughter has more of.

My 8.5 month old was born with curly hair and then it started to just have a wave. It would look really curly when wet, but then some parts would straighten out and the top part of his hair was like a little wavy fuzz ball.



When he got to around 7.5 months, all of a sudden the new hair has started coming through and it is mega tight, slightly wirey curls! I love it :)



But having said that, all kids and genes are different, you'll just have to wait and see I guess :)



I will add that I'm white and his father is African American, so it looks like he's got his Daddy's hair.

My son was born with a thick head of jet black, straight hair. It slowly went wavy, then at about 4mths he went completely bald! Now it has all grown back very dark brown and corkscrew curls! So cute! Parts of his hair, (around the back of his head where he lays), have gone quite frizzy/afro, I think that's a job for his daddy to fix! ;)
So yeah, I agree, about 6mths.

It can vary sooo much! All 4 of my kids are black/white and none of them have the same type of hair. My oldest (a boy) was born with a head full of silky straight black hair and by the time he was 8mos old it was course and curly. My second (also a boy) was bald until almost a year old and then he had reddish brown curly hair, and now he is 9 with dark brown wavy hair. My third (a girl) had straight hair until she was around 18mos and then it was super curly, she reminds me of that movie Curly Sue...lol! My youngest (also a girl) was born with lots of brown wavy hair, and still to this day at 5yrs old she had long wavy hair. Sorry this is so long! Have a great day!

All three of my children all had Asian straight hair when they came and I thought we lucked out. My husband is black and I'm hispanic. But around 6 or 7 months was when their hair started to really curl. To this day its loose curls and rather soft hair. I will be in your boat in a few months with my daughter, I have two older sons in which I can just keep it short and not worry. So let me know of any cute hair styles you come across...

[deleted account]

My son's hair was straight, unless he had a bath or was sweaty, until he was about 8 months old. Since then it's always curly, to varying degress as it's worse when he's sweaty, but it's not tight curls.
