I'm sure this will be racist no matter how I say it.-AA kids
I'm a foster parent and have 2 little girls right now. Both are AA and I'm white. They have braids or dreadlocks, I don't know the difference. It's tiny braids done all over their heads. Their hair is super brittle and smells. I want to take out the braids but the kids freaked out. They're 6 and 4 btw. They won't let me touch it. I don't know how to get out the braids, what to wash it with, how to style it, if I can blow dry it...the kids say their mom did their hair and has no idea what she did lol.
If you have AA girls or boys or are AA, what do you use on your hair? How do you style it? It is incredibly unruly right now, some of the braids are coming undone, so how do you tame the hair? I'm embarrssed to ask this because I know it seems racist, but I just don't know what to do.
