Biracial hair: AA and CA

My nine month old is getting curly hair but we are noticing that it gets really frizzy and doesn't look as cute as it does when he first gets out of the bath. Are there safe products to use on a baby and what would work well for African American/Caucasian hair? Thanks!

  • Try Carol's Daughters natural products for hair. I use the black vanilla leave in conditioner on hair but there are so many more products you could use especially for frizz. But also know that your baby's hair is going to change and may just be more frizzy.

  • Do not overwash. Wetting is okay, but too much shampoo is very bad especially for curly hair as it strips all the natural oils away. Natural oils tame frizz.

    For conditioning...olive or coconut oil are far better than anything you can ever buy in a pretty bottle.
