My kids are mixed black/white and I just put hair lotion in after washing it or any time I wet it down to fix it or anything like that. I also use the just for me hair conditioning/detangling spray every day when brushing their hair.
DD is Black/Cuban and I don't do much to it... I admit I'm lazy, but it doesn't require a lot of work... It's long and curly, so I use puddings or really light creams... I think the one I have now is a shea butter... Her hair is more fine than course... You can check a site called chocolatehairvanillacare for tips and ideas... They also have a facebook page...
Mine is mixed white and Mexican, but her hair is just wavy and not hard to control at all. :)
My daughter, 6 yrs old, is black/white/puerto rican & has LONG spiral curls (36 inches of 3b hair)....and I have found the all natural products are best for her hair......her routine is co-wash only about 3 times a week, or as needed to freshen up her hair, sulfate free shampoo every 6-8 weeks, D/C with conditioner & oil mix 2 x's a week. When hair is wet & saturated with conditioner in the shower I finger detangle and rinse in cold water.....wrap her hair in cotton tee shirt, when hair is still wet but not dripping we use Kinky-Curly Knot Today to detangle and moisturize, put in either EVOO or 100% organic coconut oil, Castor oil on her edges & ends, then Shea Moisture Curl Milk or Kinky-Curly Custard....if she is wearing her hair up in a pony or braid I will slick down her edges with Curls Passion Fruit Paste or Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie.... I have never & will never put a relaxer or softener or texturizer in her hair....never use a brush & only use a comb when wet & with product to make it smooth, never to detangle, never have had her hair tightly braided or twisted like corn rows or twists.....never use anything with parabens, silicones, sulfates, mineral oil, petroleum, or bees wax..... braid it back at night and sleep with a silk cap on & sleep on a silk pillow case....spritz with a water/oil mix every day that is not a co-wash day
