I thought her hair was never going to get long enough to do anything to it, and once it finally did, (when she was around 2) I just never wanted to stop trying new things!
At this point, I think I had just started using hair grease. Yes, I admit it... I used hair grease! I just didn't know any better at the time! I never knew anyone else with a biracial child, and all the advice I got came from her dad and his family (who are of course black) so why should I think they don't know what they were talking about?!
I also used baby lotion and baby oil in both my children's hair until they were over a year old, and I started using the baby oil gel after that. All bad things to use, I know. But once again, I didn't know any better. And actually, my kids had very nice and healthy looking hair. I was always getting compliments, and still do.
Now that I know what some better things to use, I have been using those instead.
But... I was hoping to see improvement in the look, health and length of C's hair. I have been using expensive Bee Mine products, and I honestly don't see how they are worth the money, at least not for us.
I will be posting an update on the products I've been using later.
For now, I'm still trying to talk myself out of switching back to the 'bad' and cheaper products that we used before that worked just as well (if not better) for us, by telling myself I'm doing something GOOD for her hair!
Has anyone else ever used any 'bad' products that you really liked, and if so what are they?
Have you ever thought about going back to them, or have you already?
