My daughter has very curly hair( it exactly like mine ) and it can be very dry sometimes. I have no idea what to put in it, a lot of things are either way too greasy or thick( like the stuff I put in my hair, or I would just use that) to put in a baby's hair and I'm using Johnson's "No tears Detangler" right now and its nice but her hair is still really dry. Is there anyone out there that had the same problem and found something great that works?

I have the same problem wth my daughters hair. I use and have tried everything. Pink mositerizer is ok, coconut oil is great for bedtime to use as a leave in. The Johnsons detangler is a must everyday. lol
I have learned to NOT wash her hair everyday and now only wash once a week, but I do use conditioner on it everyday when taking a bath.

Try curly q's. They work and smell great. Ur baby's hair need to stay moisturized at all time. Or try Miss jessies hair care products!! Im puerto rican and my kid's father is black frenchman but My 3yr old daughters hair is so thick curly dry and brittle i almost got fed up with it. So i went to a salon and found that. I use the baby buttercreme. It smells wonderful and stays moisturized allllll day. Only thing is its about 60 bucks a pop but it lasts for a few months and a little goes a long way. If ur fed up like i was then the cost is nothing. Getting the black hair care products will only leave ur kid's hair greasy and smellin like chemicals. Biracial kids need lots of moisture. Thats the key. Hope it helps. Good luck

I have 3 bi-racial children, their hair isnt kinky curly but my daughter's is very thick. I wash her hair with normal shampoo and conditioner (she is 10) and then I use Johnson and Johnson's No More Tangles, when I am braiding or doing different styles I found "Africa's Best" to be the best. You can find it in different stores, Walgreens is one. It comes in a jar. It keeps it tamed and is not too thick or greasy. Another product I was told about by a bi-racial teen was Frizz-ease. Its very expensive though for the amount you get so unfortunately I cant use that as much. But it is the product made out of California so watch your bottle there is another similar product called Zero Frizz, another expensive product that works well. Its hard keepin these beautiful mixed children but they are SO WORTH IT! God bless!

my SD has the same problem, especially in the summer, because the sun and pool water ( she loves to swim) creates huge damage...my girlfriend from south africa recommended "indian hemp" and also i mix her shampoo with water and conditioner about 30/50/20% and that works well...
we do the indian hemp treatment every 2 to 3 weeks as necessary...wash hair ,towel dry - at least no water dripping out of it, rub indian hemp into scalp and onto hair and then wrap with head scarf or wear a shower/night cap, leave in for at least 24 hours

My oldest daughter has very curly hair that seems like it's possibly similar to yours but also thick. I use Carol's Daughter Hair Milk which is specifically for curly hair and is not greasy at all. It smells great too. It makes the curls shiny, manageable, frizz free and bouncy. It is a little on the expensive side($12 for 4oz or $18 for 8oz and sold either online or at Sephora) It's worth every penny and will save u a huge headache

My daughters hair is just like that so I use Sunsilk in the pink bottle! It seems to be really good on her hair! And probably get the Sunsilk Shampoo in the pink bottle also works really good! It also works as a detangler!!!

I went through the same thing! Leaving in conditioner is the best thing I have came across. It works great and keeps the hair healthy and moisturized!

my daughter is only 1/4 black but has very spiral curly hair and for a long time i couldn't find anything to hold her curls without getting real frizzy until a friend gave me this product .The line is Carol's Daughter they only sell it in Sephora, i think. its a lil expensive but well,well worth it. i have the shampoo, conditioner, the leave in conditioner and a product that you put in while wet and it drys so that the curls stay full and curly and best of all it smells amazing! its worth a try!

I think you should try replenishing pack by organic root stimulator. You can get it from sally's beauty supply. My girls have curly hair and i use that on their hair and it is great. It is a conditioner but it is also safe to leave in. It makes the hair so soft! good luck

there is an olive oil spray that works great in that texture hair...my daughters hair was the same way until i started using this indian olive oil and now she even wears it down to school! and it still looks great when she gets home!!

[deleted account]

I have the same problem !!!! Pink Lotion and BB oil they feel really good when you put them on but when it dries, my daughters hair feels sooooo dry. I have found two products that are awesome. The first is called curls that is the adult line but the have a kids line called curly q's you can search the internet for it..it is a little pricey but it works, the other you can get at walmart, family dollar, or stores like that and its called kid's organics, its a detangling, mosturizing hair lotion, it has shea butter & olive oil in it...it smells good feels good and her hair dries and feels so soft, and its only $5

Looking at the texture of your hair I would recommend trying the products at Mixed Chicks.net. I use some of the line for my son, but it looks like you could use the line along with your children as the creators of the products do.

Blendedbeauty.com has some great products. And they have demo videos on how to use them for the best results. My daughter is almost 6 months and doesn't have enough hair for product yet, but when she's old enough I plan on using blended beauty products since I've seen the results in my friends children and the before and after is amazing!

I have found this product that does wonders. It's called Elasta QP. My daughter has the really tight curls and dry. You can find it online or maybe the Africian hair shops that sell hair products. Read the ingredients. Buy nothing that has paffafin wax or alcohol. Alot of people suggest Pink lotion, but that has wax and alcohol in it. It's all I use and they have the shampoo, conditioner and the moisturizer also. Trust me...if you find it, get it! Hope this helps!

My suggestion is Curly Q products! I LOVE them all! I have only been able to find them online (www.curls.biz). They are fabulous! My oldest (4yrs old) has super curly hair (3c-4a type). I tried all the different products that you can buy in the local stores (Pink, Just for Me, Optimum, etc.). Nothing worked to keep her ends from looking like fuzz balls! I found Curls and I started out with one of the sample kits. The product is a bit pricier than the other stuff, but I will not go back! I use the Curly Cutie cleansing cream once a week, followed by the Coconut Dream conditioner making sure to comb it through and let it sit for a bit (I do this every other day). When I style her hair just after washing it, I will use the Curly Q Custard or Milkshake. Her hair has never been able to be combed through until now! I've been using the products for just over a year now, and am so impressed, I should be a sales person for them!! When styling her hair after it's dry (restyling because she's been playing or whatever) I use a detangle spray (Johnson & Johnson's works just fine) and apply the milkshake or custard and all is good! The product may be more expensive, but it lasts long, is all natural, smells great, is light, non-greasy... I could go on (as if I haven't gone on already!). best luck!

My daughters hair is very curly also (like little springs) since she was born I have only used Johnson's baby lotion on her hair. She is now 7 never had a hair cut, hair to her rear and VERY pretty. She gets lots of compliments on how pretty her hair is and I tell everyone what I use they are usually very surprised but when they try it they love the results. By the way my son has the same type of hair. I tried all the black hair care products on him but the lotion did the trick for him, too. He is 19. Good luck

my daugher and i have very curly hair. try to wash it with shampoo as little as possile(when washing with shampoo only do it once the and only use it on the scalp). i use olive oil after washing with shampoo. the other times i just do a conditioner wash. leave in conditioners tend to not be so good on our hair. i use a thick conditioner as a leave in conditioner and have no problems. im 24 and biracial and many years of experimenting on the pors and cons of curly hair

I found using a silicon based glosses helps with the brittle look but using a good leave in conditioner while wet works wonders for me.

I have tried at least 30 diffrent products on my daughters hair. Finally I figured out (by accidently forgeting to wash all the conditioner out of her hair) that very light conditioner is the best thing to use. I put a bit on the palm of my wet hands and spread it through. A dab will do ya. Most people think I'm nuts and tell me her hair will fall out but I have doing it for over 2 years now and she has the most beautiful hair in school. Good Luck

I use black hair care products that are daily moisturizers on my son's hair. I used to use petroleum jelly only. It would work really well when it was wet.
