  • Buy a Pik. Wide tooth comb. Is his family close by to help with this. It would help a lot for you.

  • why not call a salon that is known for doing AA hair? its as easy as seeing someone (AA) in the mall/grocery store who's hair is beautiful, obviously cared for, and asking them where they get their hair done. then check that salon out, or better yet, get their stylist's #.

  • If she's a little over a month her hair is goin to change. I have a mixed son as well and his hair was tight curls after about 5 months. You can't put any chemicals in it at this point....I asked a black lady I saw at target in the aisle...I just told her I was clueless and needed some guidance

  • No offense but you dont have to go through any of that,shiw me a picture and I will exactly what to do with it.....my sister has four mixed babies. One is korean,the other two are white and my own children are half mexican-american.....my son was born with a mess load of hair but it was usually all down on his sides but when it did start to change, i used a bit of baby oil. and brushed his hair down and that was all.... my hair is not real fine or coarse at all but it is a lil rough and his dads hair is really fine and shiny somy babys hair is surprisingly like his fathers and he is 22 months now.

  • My friend who was of mixed heritage always put creamy baby oil (Johnson and Johnson) on her hair to make it not be frizzy. It hung in beautiful ringlets and smelled wonderful, and it had the healthiest texture and shine I've ever seen. I always loved her hair. I told a new mom about it several years ago and she's always used that with her daughters too.

  • Definitely the creamy baby oil. :)
    I have a friend who has this little girl with a whole head of hair that was just a little mess...lol.
    But that worked so well on hers.
    Like GrowingMama said, makes it smell wonderful (wish my hair smelled like that....lol) and looks so healthy, shiny and pretty.
