Found a wonderful “101” about this posted at curl.biz.  This is a great read, especially for parents who may not know how to manage the needs of biracial curly hair; very informative.   CURLS is a “premium, ethnic hair care company whose purpose is to deliver quality products that cater to the unique needs of today’s multi-ethnic market. It is the first line of hair care products truly created specifically for biracial/multiracial women and girls with naturally curly hair.”  They have a slew of products for curly, wavy, and kinky hair types of all ages. If you’ve tried these products, PLEASE let BBH know.  Imma read up on CURLS and hofy (short for hopefully; yes you can use it:) try some of their products too. But honey, with Easter/Resurrection Day coming up, I want you and your babies to by FLY, no excuses – cuz you will get talked about (yes at church)!! ..LOL! jus’playin…

Also, peep Tightly Curly that’s a site/blog created by Teri LaFlesh who is “half Black and half White” (that’s how she describes herself for the politically correct out there). She demonstrates how she grew her long l natural hair. She’s also authored a book called Curly Like Me available on pre-order.I will say her Seven Basic Steps tutorial is great and pretty much sums up the hair shampooing, conditioner and detangling routine I use on my daughter (except I just use my fingers and a wide tooth comb; rarely a brush – though many blogs and hair gurus recommend it), and my daughter -who is African-American- has kinkier hair than hers.

I hope you found this information helpful, or feel free to pass along to your Fam and Friends.  Go’Head Baby, Be Curly!!


OK, so what’s up with Target getting all pro-fro?!? This is the 2nd natural hair product I’ve heard to hit its shelves recently. You may recall days ago I blogged about Miss Jessie’s hair products coming to Target, specifically on 3/28, and in some cases like Cincy, OH, its already on the shelves…

Anywho, Jane Carter Solution Products (JC) are for

…dry hair. Including curly, wavy, straight, relaxed, natural hair, color treated and locked hair. We use ingredients derived from nature, natural butters, and certified organic essential oils that make your hair vibrant and alive again. Like the thousands of satisfied customers that use our products on a regular basis, I am sure that you will get great results from every use.”

Though I never tried JC products before (uhm, but I will) for my little one, I am definitely feeling their mission, devotion to quality hair products and overall entrepreneurship. Please check out the Ask Jane Blog as well. You can also sign up for a free copy of “The 3 Simple Secrets of Growing Great Hair.” Pretty interesting stuff.

Well, that’s all folks. I’ll hook you up with reviews asap. If anyone has tried JC products- cuz they have a pretty good following already -PLEASE SHARE LAWD. Oh, and kudos to Target for expanding their hair care products to include organic lines for curly/kinky hair. Go’head “Tar-jay”, Be Curly. LOL! – Hollah.


K, so this stuffed elephant has absolutely nothing to do with natural hair.  But if you’ve read about us, you’d note we mention crafts; cuz its something I like to do for da’babies, mmhhmm.  Sooooo what do you think?

I made the template and stitched it all by hand. The body is fleece and the eyes are soft buttons (made of felt) to prevent  infant choking hazards.  This was my very first attempt at something like this. I was so thrilled to see my daughter hug and tote it all around the house (even if she was dragging and twirlling by the ear, LOL!).  It was well worth the trial.  You like?  What else should I try??

Go’Head Baby!



So, in case you’re wondering about  the hair regimen for our daughter, below you find what worked for me thru the various stages of her hair. Note, I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for other organic products, so while I list/recommend a few here, there are soooooo many other products out there (which is why BabyBigHair is here to help you find the one for you!!).

Months 0-5 (new territory)

First let me say, my daughter had a TON of hair, so growing her hair was never an issue, maintaining it and preventing a bald spot was.   Personally I used Johnson & Johnson’s Soothing Naturals Head to Toe Body Wash on my daughter’s hair, washing her hair about once a week. It left her hair soooo soft and silky.   I don’t really recall putting anything else in her hair other than a dusting of baby oil for shine (too much will clog hair follicles), and would twirl a few pieces of her around my finger to define her baby fro a ‘lil, add a barrette or headband and VIOLA!!  At this stage baby products should do for any baby, you really want something soft and delicate. HOWEVER, had I stumbled upon it, I would’ve tried the “It’s a Curl” product line.  It’s all natural and made specifically for babies.   If you try and like, please let us know. Continue reading →

So this weekend was big hair week for our daughter. Mommy went through the process of washing her hair on Saturday morning. And believe you me, it is a process that I’m sure my wife will break down in a multiple-posts series in the near future.

Well the decision was made for her to rock the curly afro steez for the weekend. Let’s just say that before that happens again, we are going to have to make some signs with the instructions: Don’t Even Think About Touching My Hair!!

I mean come on son! We went to two restaurants over the weekend and people ranging from waiters/waitresses to customers just felt the need to come up and touch her hair. It’s as if we had a sign on her head telling them to do it so they could get a blessing or something. Continue reading →
