Mommas that have children with extremely curly hair (added a different pic it is also on page #10)

Posted by   + Show Post

 or mommas with extremely curly hair. I have a question but,first let me explain why I'm asking. Joey (soon to be 16 yr old) has blonde very tiny tight curls...he also has a lot of hair. It doesn't matter how short we cut it when it dries ( after a bath...etc) it goes "AFRO" on him. We've even tried growing it out because I have curly hair and if I let it get longer the weight pulls some of the curl out..no go. Doesn't work on Joey .

 He has beautiful hair but it is un-manageable and is starting to drive us crazy! I bought him some of the oils that one of my co-workers said works wonders on her daughter's hair (her daughter is mixed) it almost worked but,not quite. Do any of you know of ANYTHING that would work on him?

 Or are there any other products that I haven't tried yet? We would really rather not shave his head...He finally decided that he likes his hair ( help of his little "girlfriend") Now,we just need to make his hair look a little neater.

 TIA.

 I've switched out the picture...this is what I'm up against.

I say-embrace it...can't fudge with nature, momma! 

He has great hair and probably the personality to go with it.  I think any good product is going to just de frizz it and make it look like a jerry curl a la' Rick james LOL...I wouldn't put a brush to it, period. get him a wide toothed comb, some leave-in and...well..it is what it is..

tried a bit of mousse? or motions shampoo/conditioner? thats what i use on my mixed babies :)  um... also it helps when i blow dry the hair not let it air dry (on warm not hot) and there are curling serums. or "moon shine" . For the wiry hair though, motions is supposed to help smooth the hair shaft.

john frieda makes a repair oil that just gives the hair a little weight. Id honestly try deep conditioning, then use a little mousse or curling serum and then gentle blow dry on warm OH! and ONLY ever use a wide tooth comb when wet! It keeps it from stretching or breaking a lot

 Oh,we are. Don't want to straighten it just de frizz and un afro it....LOL. Like I said,I love his hair. Any female I know would kill for it. My hair is curly,just not THAT curly.

 And,yup.His hair matches his personality...all goofy and silly.But,you can trust him to be responsible at all times. He actually got his bff grounded 2 weeks ago because Devin came over to our house and snuck a beer (or tried to). Joey came and got me;then he walked Devin home and "helped" *more like forced* Devin tell his mom what happened. (Not because we'd told him to either) I'm very proud of my baby boy....he's growing up.

  Shhhh! Don't let him hear you say that! He thinks he's all grown up! wink

Quoting acrogodess:

soon to be 16? He looks as babyfaced as my 11 yr old! Why not just keep him with buzzcuts? It would be impossible to curl if it is just about shaved off.
