My boys are mixed white and black. One (4 yr) has the classic tight, black, curly hair. The other (2 yr) has a softer curl and blond, but still very curly (I combed him out this morning after a shower and now he has the Richard Simmons fro). I would love for their hair to be long and curly without being fros, like tightly curly does. However, I would rather not use commercial conditioners. I'm assuming I'll have to apply oils and avoid brushing, but I'm not sure how to go about that or what oils to use, in what order to comb (if it's okay) and apply oil, etc etc. I'm assuming they will need different oils since their hair textures are different. I'm so very white and my hair is only wavy. :P Advice is appreciated. My husband can't help. He only knows chemical treatments and now Bics his head all the time.
Oh yeah, currently they only get water on their hair as per how crazy they are in their bath, and Burts bees baby shampoo if something needs to be scrubbed out (only a couple times a month). The only reason for Burts is because it's tear-free, and they ALWAYS get it in their eyes. Ideas for that are welcome as well.
