My daughter is of bi-racial race: Mexican and American. I have somewhat wavy hair and her dad has wavy hair and she has the curliest, driest, frizziest hair I have ever EVER seen. It is so hard to manage, I'm to the point where I just wanna take her to get it relaxed. It's apparent that her hair is long when I wash it, but it is just a big ole' afro full of curls! Her hair is GORGEOUS but soooo hard to manage. Suggestions?Answer Question

My son is black and I am white. Learning to care for his curly tight hair has been a challenge and also fun. We wash his hair once every two weeks and sometimes can go longer. Because he has no moisture/oil in his hair, it can get very dry, we make sure to have his product in his hair each morning and each night before bed. We don't use a brush. We have combs and picks plus. But the biggest help has been from a local salon that does hair like his every day. They recently put his hair in twists and we plan on braiding soon. The owner is teaching me how to briad and style his hair. She is taking me under her wing. All I can say is that it helps to go to the people who know how to work with the type of hair your child has. It is worth every single penny. And eventually I will be able to go less often and do the styles at home.
