My daughter is finally growing hair. I have no idea what to do with it. It is very soft and curly. The underneath is short tight curls, the top long pretty looping curls. I treat her hair with organic food grade coconut oil about every other day or so. I was with traditional "white people" shampoo e.g aussie or svauve for kids.
My daughter is multi racial, my family is chickasaw indian, german and dutch, I am very fair skined. Her father is AA, jamacian and indian. She is " coffee with cream" (her words) I have no experience with her type of hair. I want to be true to both of her worlds but I know that most people including me see the dark skin so I want to be true to that part of her heritage, if that make any sence
She is 3 years old.
What are cute ways to do her hair, It must be simple with a minimum of hair ties as she pulls them out. I have "corn rowed" her hair but she complains it hurts, if I let it go into a afro then she complains her head it hot and her hair is in her eyes.
Also what other conditioners can I use with her hair to keep it healthy. I do not want to perm or relax her hair. She is cute as she is, we just need to do SOMETHING. oh and I try to keep her hair products to stuff that wont kill her if she eats it. She puts everything into her mouth.
