Show and Tell- The Curly Baby Edition

Hola Chicas,

It's that time again... a virtual play date to celebrate the beautiful, curly babies in our lives! Click on the images to enlarge them:

I suppose Noelle could also go under the "I Big Chopped" category! I cut all of her hair off Super Bowl Sunday 2011 because she was playing and pulling her hair out. It got so bad that she became bald in different spots on her head and it was just best to cut it all off to (1) have her hair grow back evenly and (2) get her out of the habit of pulling her hair out.

My babygirl Morgan, age 5. I co-wash her hair. I redo her braids every week with Miss Jessies buttercreme. This is a braid-out, prepping to wash.
Here is a pic of my 6 year old daughter Makenzie. I washed her hair with Shea Moisture Curl and Shine Shampoo and conditioned with my home made conditioning mix. And for the styling I used the Curl Enhancing Smoothie. My Kenzie-Poo hehehe!
I came across this photo and could not resist sharing it. This is me -Tammy, sporting my TWA some 41 yrs ago. "No grandmom, use a wide-tooth comb! USE A WIDE-TOOTH COMB! LOL!"
This is my 3 year old baby girl Carmen on Christmas Day. This was a twist-out on dry hair. As far as products, I am still looking for that perfect product for her hair. But I usually use Suave baby shampoo and detangler and then use Hello Hydration conditioner. I also use coconut oil as a moisturizer.


My beautiful 10 year old daughter, Destanee. Freshly washed hair using Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus line of shampoo and hair milk, air dried.
Here is a picture of my daughters Lyric (12) and Melody (7) wearing twist-outs for Easter. I washed their hair with Carol's Daughter Tui Herbal Shampoo. I conditioned their hair with a home made conditioner I found on your site : ) avocado, cucumber, and sour cream. I twisted Lyric's hair while wet using Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue. I twisted Melody's hair dry using Darcy's Botanicals Avocado and Wild Plum Twisting Cream. To untwist and seal moisture I used coconut oil on Lyric's hair. On Melody's hair I used Darcy's Botanicals Coconut & Cupuacu Butter.
A photo of my naturally curly daughter "N".
Miss R is 15 months old and Mr. C is 3 years old. I used Organic Root Stimulator's Smooth N Hold Pudding in their hair. It worked well in smoothing Miss R's ponytails and adding lots of shine and moisture to both.

I have two but will focus on my son for now:

My son, Nicolas, at the Arboretum enjoying the covered wagon. I adore his
ringlets. We use a combination of products such as TRESemmé Curl
Moisturizing shampoo, Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner by Organix and
Carol's Daughter Hair Milk shampoo and conditioner.

Send in your favorite picture with a caption (complete with product recommendations) to [email protected] I'll post several every other Friday, in the order I receive them.
Be sure to use 'Curly Baby' as the subject line! **We need more ASAP!!!**

@Tammy, that is so funny, "No grandma use a wide tooth comb." LOL

@Rania -My daughter has hair exactly like your son. What do you use as a leave-in and styling agent? His hair looks so soft and fluffy. I am finding either the products leave my daughter's hair oily or crunchy.

As a European-American mom of three African-American kids, I think I have the whole moisturizing and conditioning thing down. I just find it hard to "tackle" my 22 month old baby girl to get her to allow my to comb her hair. She has always had a sensitive scalp and now has refused even ponytails. My husband insists on the natural look (I agree its cute), but her very tight, tiny curls makes it almost impossible to get through in one sitting.

Any suggestions?
