Bi-Racial Hair Care

I have 2 Multi-Ethnic Daughters, both of them have hair similar to a white persons hair. Its very long, curly and very soft to the touch. I always get asked if they are Native American or Indian (Arabian - Pakistan). They are White, Black and have Native American in them with Ethnic backgrounds = German, Irish, Scottish, English and more. Not like the typical mixed kids hair you see that is really course, tight curls and similar to a fro. What type of hair does your daughters have or do you have? What do you use on your daughters hair? Shampoo? Conditioner? Leave in Conditioner? Moisturizing Lotions?

  • My biracial daughter has the "white" hair but she is only 1 1/2 so I really haven't had to style it since she was born. I guess when she is older I will use all natural products like I use on my own AA hair.
