What the heck do you do to your girls hair! My daughter's hair is so long pass her butt and super thick I just can't do anything with it. It knots up, dreads up can't comb it ugh. What do you use in your kid's hair to make it more manageable? Please share, I'm thinking of chopping it off and passing her off as a boy lol

Go to the African specilaity store they have natural products with oils like jobs oil Shea butter. Also morracan gargantuan oil is great. Stay away from pink oil moisture.

Try using Kinky Curly products. They sell them at Target.

Why not take her to an African American salon or stylist and have her hair done and then discuss with the stylist the best means of caring for her hair? If not, ask any AA friends?

Mixed Chicks is designed for biracial hair. Its pricey but amazing..My two oldest daughters are white/mexican and my youngest two, a boy and a girl, are white/black.. and that stuff works great for all 4 kids..But only my two that are mixed with black use the leave in as well as the shampoo & conditioner :)

My dd doesn't have the thick coarse hair that most biracial kids have. It's just regular old curly hair. Not super curly though, only at the bottom.

My cousin has a step daughter that biracial. She went to a ethnic hair shop. They told her to get this leave in conditioner called mixed chicks. She absolutely loves it. She even uses it in her own hair. She has very curly/kinky hair & it makes it more manageable.

I only shampoo my daughters hair every couple days or it gets dried out. I condition it every day though. Also, when I'm rinsing the conditioner out of her hair I use cooler water to help lock in moisture. Heat opens up hair cuticles and cold does opposite. I use Motions and Design Essentials in her hair.
