I have 5children, 2 of whom are bi racial, ages 2 and 3 (black and white) I do not know what to do to their hair so it doesn't frizz out all the time!!! Please help me because there are so many products out there I do not know what to do!!! p.s. I've tried Pink lotion and that does not work!

My sister uses the Mixed Chick's line for her two daughters who are bi racial. If you can't find it in a store near you then try Amazon, they carry it.

Great! Let me know what products you think will work, because I have no experience what so ever. There are so many to choose from and it seems the ones I've tried do not work!

Oh...with a 3 yo...the only thing I'd be concerned with is getting it in their eyes, but that's any soap...I would think that the products would work on them, tho. Salons may be a little wary of having such young ones in the chair for a treatment, but definitely look into over the counter products formulated for that hair type. I'm still drawing a blank on what exactly I found (was about 10 years ago), but I have an email out to the grandma of those kids...she'll know, she still does a lot of their shopping.

Sorry about that, I guess their ages didn't register when I posted first!

Really? Do you think she will take it well because she is only 3? Do they do that for her age?

I'd recommend straighteners/relaxers, or if it's REALLY kinky/frizzy, a straightening treatment.

Ask at a local salon for recommendations for over the counter products. I had a 2 little girls that stayed with us awhile back that had the same hair. Dad was getting them regular haircare products, rather than special ones. I can't remember what I finally ended up using, but it helped soften, unkink, and unfrizz for beautiful results (and not a lot of screaming/crying)
