So I’ve slowly (like snail speed) been trying to teach myself how to manage my daughters hair. With them being multi-ethnic ( I refuse to say “race”) they are mixed 50% white, 37.5% black, 12.5% hispanic and totaling 100% American 🙂 . Now with my oldest, managing her hair hasn’t been a real challenge she has more “white” hair. The only difference with her hair is that it doesn’t get greasy, it gets dry and so we add oil to it. Her hair won’t stay in corn rows or any of those type of styles. She prefers her “princess braid” which is just a french braid. The nice thing about her hair is that it finger curls perfectly! I’ll post a photo of the finger curls I did with a cute little hair style.
So, I thought my mother-in-law would be more helpful than she has when it comes to helping me learn about how to manage her hair. She has taught me some but nothing like teaching me to cornrow and such. My sister-in-law grew up being the only white girl around so she has helped me with what products to use and not to use and encourages me to experiment and such. She can’t be hands on though because she lives in Germany right now while my brother-in-law is stationed there. With some of her advice I was able to find a line of Olive Oil products that have been helping a lot. I’m still teaching myself to cornrow, but I have the rag curls down, and with proper product help finger curls. I’ll post a pic showing the difference in her hair from when its just natural and when its finger curled. Now I’m trying to find headwraps for them to wear at night so their hair doesn’t get messed up.
I’ll post more as I learn to do more hair styles 🙂 For now here’s a link to the website of the hair products I’ve been using. I use both the regular and organic line along with organic coconut oil. https://orshaircare.com/en/our-products/olive-oil-girls/
