Moms with boys who have curly hair

How do you take care of it? There has to be a better way that takes less than an hour!!! I have to give him a bath, use conditioner and while the conditioner is in his hair that's when I comb the knots out. Then I have to rinse and use a moisturiser THEN I have to go and twist each individual curl! Any suggestions or is this seriously what I have to do everyday in order to keep his curls? Lol

I just cut their hair to make it look a little wavy, but it's not as curly as his. What a cutie!

What a cute kid!

Dd has the same hair. Here's my routine:

Wide tooth comb while wet.

Apply a crap-ton of anti-frizz stuff. I use the Firzz Ease serum, comes in a purple bottle, about $10 for the tiny little thing.

Air dry. Don't let her head touch ANYTHING.

Her hair will clump into spirals on its own as long as its untouched.

Otherwise ... it fros.

He's adorable!!!!!!!

My little guy doesn't have tight curls like your lil' man, but he does have nice loose curly hair. I do almost the same minus the conditioner since his hair doesn't tangle that much. I also use suave kids hair detangler spray to style his hair. After a while though his hair is back to crazy. My little guy is 2.5yo and we still haven't cut his hair.

Thank you! I don't let his head touch anything!! I flip on family who ruffles his hair up! Lol but without twisting them his hair only curls like this in the front and the rest ends up looking a bit like dreads lol. And if I comb it outside of the bath it fro's up!

Thank you! His hair gets tangled really bad! We tried detangler and it didn't help! The conditioner is the only thing that makes the combing bearable for him.

Why do you twist his hair? Just let it air dry. My son has curly hair like your son but his is a lot longer. I have a spay bottle mixed with water and conditioner. I spray his hair with that then brush it out. I have this cream called olive oil pudding. I put a little of that and rub it in. Then let his hair air dry. Anything with olive oil is good. We all have curly hair, dh, dd, ds and myself. So it's the same process for all of us. And my dd hair is past her butt.

I wasn't twisting until recently because a stylist told us to give it a try. I'll post a pic of his hair when I don't twist it. Huge difference.
