hi i'm a woman mixed with asian & white, and my hubbie is black. i'm due in just 4 weeks, we'll be having a little girl. i have been looking around at websites, books etc. for doing our girl's hair. i wonder if anyone has any tips about good books/sites that would help me??? my primary concern is that i learn to do her hair MYSELF as opposed to having other people do it for me! i also want to know as much as i can about caring for her beautiful mixed hair. any ideas??

as most pregnant women, I can't hardly wait, it's called nesting and preparation! :)

I have a biracial daughter who is 1/2 AA 1/2 Cauc. I too have concerns about how to care for her hair. It seems to me that everywhere we go there is someone (an AA woman) willing to give advice, most often, unsolicited advice. The one thing I have learned in the past three years caring for my daughter's hair is to keep it conditioned and moist. Since you are part Asian your daughter will more than likely have more managable hair, but my daughter has mostly AA hair. To keep it from being too big a chore (for her and me) I section it off and keep it in braids or pig tails -- it's easier to get to the scalp (that's where you need to put the oils) and it's easier to do each day (just touch up). You'll learn over time how to take care of her hair. Congratulations.

first, see if she has black or white/asian hair, then decide how to do it. Good luck!!1

it really depends on the type of hair she is born with. I have two girls with very long curly hair. I put their hair into pony tails :-)

Well doing your little girls hair can be very expensive.theres certain products you can use like Mixedchicks (mixedchicks.com) or For Mixed Hair which are both beginning to sell in salons near california through geogria.IŽll tell you all i can.So if you get a bottle (like the ones they use to die hair) you could divide the bottle in four equal sections.fill it up with 1 fourth Baby Shampoo and 3 fourths water.Shake it up and youve got shampoo.You should only wash her hair once a week.(i know gross) try not to use any grease,gels,or spray.Shampoo and conditioner without Mineral Oil or Petrolatum works best.try to use things with Coconut,Pomegranate,Avocado,and Jojoba Seed oil in them.MixedChicks is worth it but its $37.00 for everything.(shampoo,conditioner,moistuizer) i recommennd you take a look at there site.

I have troubles of my own!! My daughter is 10 and I still haven't figured out how to keep her curls curly and not frizzy. When I see someone like Corbin Bleu, I wonder how he keeps his hair curly. It doesn't look like he combs it! Is that even an options. Also, her curls are tight and I wonder how to "loosen" them so they'll hang down (her hair is so long when she gets a shower!) without a relaxer. Is she too young for a relaxer? And then there is the matter of straightening it. I just bought the "In Styler". It is the best one I've tried, but still leaves frizz! I do not use any straightening product on it becasue it scares me when in the past it looked liker her hair was frying. As you can see I have many issues. I still do her hair everyday (a pony tail mostly), but she is 10 and should be able to start doing her own hair. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful. Thanks!

like someone else said, since you are part Asian, your daughter's hair may not be as coarse...but you never know.

I'm white. my husband is black, but part native american and our daughter's hair is long and as soft as mine, but just a bit curly. I still put "Just for me" detangler and hair conditioning (aka grease) in it to keep it healthy

hi i'm mel i have 5 children also mixed race my daughter and two small boys have long hair ,it was quite tricky to manage thier hair when i first started out especially the youngest as his hair is thick with tight wringlets, i have found it quite easy to manage if i brush it out after i've washed it and it's still quite wet also adding a detangler olive oil spray to it, it gets out the knots alot more easily and i don't have to brush it the next day and sometimes the day after as it looks really good still i often get other mums asking me what i put into the children's hair because it looks so beautiful and healthy this is the advice i give them, i don't no if my information will help you but if your little girl has hair like my youngest i'm sure it will come in useful in the future good luck

Just wanted to make a quick comment on the lady who suggested the MixedChicks product...When looking up the website use the spelling www.mixedchix.com. If you spell it out as Mixedchicks with a "ck" you will end up on a porn site. Thanks

Try Moroccanoil intense curl cream on a mixed childs hair when they're older because of the price its at. or on yourself if you have curly hair.
or try the website MIXEDCHICKS.COM :)
