I’ve been getting a lot of questions on Bear’s hair care routine and the products I use. Since I’m often trying new products on his hair, I decide to share my tips, tricks, (and some misses) as well as rave about some products I’ve used. Let’s go!
- Figure out your child’s hair type. Biracial/mixed and curly hair often comes in different curl patterns and textures. Once you determine your child’s hair type, it will make your life a lot easier!
- Once you know their hair type, buy products specifically for that type. This requires a trial and error method. You’ll also figure out very quickly that you like to experiment and buy different products. It doesn’t mean you need to go out and spend a lot of money; some of the best products I’ve used for Bear’s hair cost less than $10 and lasted for months.
- YouTube is your friend. Seriously. There are a ton of videos on biracial/mixed and curly hair care. I also recommend YouTube for all hair types. I’ve discovered a lot of gems in taking care of my hair.
Lastly, invest in a good detangling brush and wide-tooth comb. There’s an amazing detangling brush I even use on my own hair.
So, what products do I recommend?
For shampoo and conditioner, try L’Oreal’s EverCurl.
For co-washes, try As I Am.
