    I have an 18 month old daughter. I'm not much into hair typing but I guess I would say she is a 4a mostly. But I have tried everything to help keep her hair moisturized but I'm having a hard time. I cowash her hair every other week and shampoo during the off week to help retain moisture but it doesn't work. When I wash her hair I put it in twist or pony tails to let it air dry. I seal the ends with EVOO or coconut oil and I use a leave it. But the minute her hair dries it is extremely dry. She has very fine hair so heavy products do nothing but sit on top of her hair. The only moisturizer I have found that works is cantu shea moisturizer but at the end of the day her hair is still dry. I'm lost about what to do, please help. Thank you

      *BUMPITY BUMP BUMP BUMP* I have a stepdaughter who may be staying with us for the year. I can't braid to save my life, and want to give her a break from puffs. What can I do that's age appropriate for a 7 year old girl?

        Two strand twists, three strand twists, mini twists, twist outs, braid outs, etc. I love anything that incorporates some cornrows. I'll post some pics... : )

          seeing the mini braids again makes me want to do them for back to school. without your protective challenge i probably would have never attempted them but i'm glad i did. they were so versatile and held up great.

            I want to try a twist or braid out on my 5year old but she is in school and i worry it would be serious tangles later. She has dense porous hair, prolly 4a! Any advice? Thx!

              Hey! I've got 2 girls with completely different (biracial) hair. Working on issues with my 8 year old's hair, so my question is for my 2 year old. Her hair is fine and super curly and more wavy in the front. plaits unravel and having it down means a tangled mess later. Just trying to figure out styles and I can cornrow to save my life...lol

                Are you familiar with African threading? If so, what tips can you give and what type of thread should I get?

                  You might why to try posting your question on her facebook page, many folks do that, you may get a quicker response. But I hear folks talk about threading and they use regular weave thread, which you can find at a beauty supply store. And check out "girlloveyourcurls" Youtube video on African threading.

                  @Ali- have you tried flat twists, veil style, or bantu knots. These styles are quick and require no cornbraiding. If you want to learn how to cornbraid, BeadsBraidsBeyond has an article/post on how to do so, just search her archive.

                      Thanks! I've watched videos, other people and I promise you my brain and fingers can not grasp it...LOL

                      If my 2-year old will sit still long enough, I may just have to try flat twist and will def check out the article on your site as well. Thanks!

                        At what age do you start using conditioner/moisturzier/leave-in on baby's hair. I have 2.5 mths old granddaughter. I bought the It's a Curl Line from Curls for her.

                            - my baby cousin is about 3 months old . is there a certain time to start styling her hair ? and is there a way to prevent a tenderhead ?

                            oh and her older brother is about a year old and after his aunt used baby buttercreme, his hair started falling out . what should we do ?
