  • Go to a salon that serves a lot of African Americans and ask them for tips on products and such. I would recommend keeping it natural and just using product. A perm could really harm her hair.

  • well what you can do it get some grease(its like gel for that type of hair) and get a soft bristle brush and but the grease on the front of the hair close to the forehead and use the soft brush start brushing back and put everything into a ponytail. you can find t0ons of stuff on youtube.com

  • my sister is mixed, i know what you mean. she's always complaining about it. she uses grease in her hair. most girls use this stuff, i think it's called Pink...i could be wrong though. it's either called Pink or it is pink lol. she's tried it, but it doesn't work on her hair. we heard about it through a friend who has her own mixed children and she swears by it. go to Sally's (or some other hair store) and ask, they should know what it is.

  • carol's daughter hair milk..best products on the market..a bit more expensive than sally's haircare lines, but well worth it! plus, all their products smell so nice, not greasy or oily. you don't want to start caring for her hair by using any kind of brush, wet or dry-that will only pull/stretch wet hair, and cause frizz. as her hair grows and gets tangly, you'll need to use wide-toothed combs to detangle, working from the bottom up to the scalp, slowly. always apply products (whichever you choose to use) appropriately and distribute well into the hair, then comb it through to the ends, allowing natural flow/wave/curl to bounce back into place, without disturbing it. drying naturally will be your best finished look. if you choose to use barretts/headbands/etc, place them while hair is still damp, without pulling or tugging the hair.

  • curly hair is best treated with diligent use of products for curly/wavy/textured hair, little or no heat in styling (unless you're straightening), and no disturbance by touch during the drying process. if you choose to loosen the curl/wave after its completely dry, you can gently 'shake' hair from the underneath, or separate curls with your wide-spread fingers, like a rake, but minimally. the more you touch curly hair, the bigger it will end up.curls are great, especially on little ones, who don't usually like a lot of fuss anyway.
    btw, if you go to the carol's daughter website, you can find tips on styling hair, too.
