  • I would just be worried that it would run into her eyes. Should I be?

  • it usually takes just a small amount. I have heard of someone using vasoline. My daughters hair spiked everywhere until it grew long enough to lay down. Most of the time I just let it do its own thing becuase she never would let me put a bow in.

  • Better yet, try the creamy baby oil. It's more of a lotion.

  • i use biosilk on my son. you'll have to get it at a salon and it's a little bit pricey, but it's so worth it. if you don't want to go that route, i would suggest baby oil. don't pour it on her head, put a small amount in your hand and rub them together, then gently rub your hand on her hair.
