Hey peeps! I haven't been in here in awhile but I have a question.

My friend is getting her first foster care placement and its an African American baby. She was askin me questions about her skin and hair and if she should treat it differently or with special products. I have no idea! But I don't want her getting bad advice and putting lots of chemicals and crap on her skin. SOOO, what's the low down? Anything special?

I have a mixed baby. We use coconut oil for her hair and skin. It works well so far!

COconut oil works GREAT! I also found that the hair braid shops here in town are AWESOME about telling moms how to work with girls hair.

My friend was given her goddaughter to adopt after the childs mother died in Iraq.  She had NO clue how to care for her hair/skin.  She found a very natural African braid shop here and town and the wonderful older ladies told her she was an angel for taking the girl in to raise her and taught her all about hair and skin care.
