My dd is 4! I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on her hair! I'm bi racial! My hair is naturally curly/wavy very easy to maintain! Her dad is all the way black! My dd's hair is nothing like mine! It's very hard to comb through & no matter wht hair product I use nothing keeps her hair moisturizers! Within hrs it looks dessert dry as if I never touched it! Anyone know of any really good hair products tht would work for my baby! A few I've tried are : liv, pink lotion, olive oil, carrot oil!?? Thnks in advance!

For me it's trial and error- My daughter and I have big curly hair, we need lots of moisture and cremes/gels work best for us..I like Miss Jessie's, ojon, mixed chicks, oh honey child..

wet her hair with a spray bottle first it will make it easier to comb through.

There's a bunch of stuff you can try for moisturizers. Mixed Chicks, Taliah Waajid's line (I love her curly curl cream), Carol's Daughter, Uncle Funky's Daughter, Just For Me, etc.

Then use an essential oil. Olive oil, Jojoba oil, Argon oil etc. to seal in the moisture.


I'm still trying to find something for my youngest but water and oil keep his hair moisturized even if it's dry looking.

ditto on taliah waajid...my niece uses it on hers and her daughters hair now...also i hear carol's daughter is good too...my niece also used Kinky Kurlee for a while and loved it but like i said, she switched to TW and likes it better...if you live in a small town like us u may have to order it...something else my daughter uses and we sometimes use it on tootie that we got local but i totally can't think of what it is but it was a detangler but specifically for AA hair at one of those asian stores...

Pretty baby. Try water and grease or coconut oil and olive oils while hair is wet. Basically make sure you have a water bottle near by and moisturizers. It will be much easier.

Sounds like you should have had a white man baby, since you so clueless, about black hair. Go to library get a book? And next time do baby hair, before take a picture.
