Yes this thread is purely for fun.
If you were gonna give your 7 month old a mohawk what would you use? I was thinking shea butter..... any other ideas?

hmmm, shea butter would work pretty well I think. I have been tempted to just use my mousse for my hair!

DS just had one naturally.

I might use a softened beeswax hand balm, like unscented badger balm. It seems like it would work well.

we do a mohawk on our dd! It started as a joke because her hair did that naturally, but now that is long we still put it in a mowhawk because it just looks right on her!! Anyway we use a skirt of hair spray on hour hand then run it on her hear! works great!

olive oil. great for the hair, great for the scalp. great stuff. although the babe will smell like a salad.

...this sounds familiar somehow...

I've wondered about this myself! My 8 1/2 month old has long brown hair on the top of his head and lighter hair underneath and it's just calling out for a mohawk. My hair stuck up naturally when I was little, but both of my dss have their dad's hair that just lays flat. I definitely need more than water for ds-I've tried it and it only works for a second.

oh, and what i have read the old punks over in england used was just shampoo. if you don't wash it out, you can form your hair into any shape you want. i tried it a couple times back in high school and it really works, although it feels nasty when dry - obviously. don't work it into too much of a lather. j&j probably works fine.

you can make a hair gel out of flax seeds, by boiling them in water and then straining the seeds out, leaving the gummy residue behind. I don't have the actual recipe though.

wow, flax seeds! That sounds pretty cool, i know alot of people use that recipe as an egg substitute when baking, and i have heard of punks using egg whites in their hawks.......

Pure aloe vera gel works great for keeping curls together, wonder if it would work for baby hair?

Ha! DD h as had a mohawk since birth! And she's one. I didn't mean for it to be like that though. It just sort of happened. And it stays that way from my constant playing with it when she nurses. I don't try to tame it either.

I use shea butter in my hair... it works awesome for styling. I rub a pea sized amount through my hair (sometimes I add some essential oil) then I use my hands to rub warm to hot water overtop. I style it when its wet and it drys really well. I bet that it would be perfect for a baby mohawk!

I heard the punks used corn starch for the multiple spike look, so I guess it would work for a mohawk, too.

I used Olive Oil for dd's cradle cap and it resulted in a baby mohawk (which was funny on her because she also had the Julius Cesar ring going on!)
