This post is for all the Caucasian mom's who have no idea what to do with their mixed daughters hair. First of all, let's tackle the hair!
Here's a simple step by step hair routine you can follow:
Step 1. Drench hair
Step 2. Gently apply conditioner into the hair and scalp. Massage the scalp to cleanse, rinse and then reapply the conditioner and detangle with a comb or your fingers. Separate the hair in sections and start from the ends to the root when detangling.
Step 3. Rinse hair with cool water and apply a little of that same conditioner again. When you scrunch the hair you should be about to hear that squishy sound the wet hair and product makes.
Step 4. (This step is optional) Apply your styling product and scrunch the hair a little again.
Step 5. Drying: you can let the hair air dry or if you are in a hurry grab a t-shirt that you don't use anymore and scrunch the hair (starting from the ends up).
Tip: Don't do your daughter's hair everyday because it will always be damp and damp hair is not healthy. Try doing it 3-4 times a week.
Secondly, and I believe this is most important, encourage your daughter A LOT about her hair. Don't just put her hair in pigtails or ponytails! Do fun styles with it so she can really see how beautiful her hair is. If she doesn't have any friends with hair like hers show her some blogs like this so, she can see all the different kinds of curly hair and the people that are confident with their hair so she can become more confident too :)

|First day hair (wet)|
Hey, curly girls! This product (III Sisters of Nature-Natural Curling Gelo) has been talked about a lot! People were saying that it was better than Kinky Curly so, I obviously had to try it out.
The pictures above and below are my first day hair using this product. Above my hair was wet and below my hair was almost completely dry. It impressed me very much and if you follow me on InstaGram (bobicurls) you probably saw me brag a lot about this product!

|Second day hair|
On the second and third day of me trying the product I was pretty much in love with it and decided to forever use that one and replace my Kinky Curly with it. I loved how my hair had absolutely no frizz at all and it looked so healthy. But...... then I combed my hair out and it was a nightmare! My hair was very squeaky, it took forever to comb out, and by the time I had finished detangling it I had a handful of hair that had come out. I decided never to use it again. Throughout that entire week my hair still had that weird squeaky feel to it and it was an annoying chore to comb it out so, I used my Shea Moisture Shampoo to wash all of the product out and after that my hair was finally back to normal.
So, my advice to all of y'all is to definitely never use this product! It is awful and the end product is no fun...
By the way, just in case you haven't yet, follow me on InstaGram @bobicurls. Thanks!
