I think I destroyed it in an attempt to cut it a while back. It's going straight in the back and is still curly on the sides. I'm trying to grow it back out and have someone professionally cut it. Any tips on products for a little one who's got 3b/3c hair?

    Aw she's so pretty. I am sure it will grow back. When I was three I had ringlets popping from my head in every direction and I shaved half of them off so I had to be a bald kid. My hair grew back kind of straight and for a long time it was straight. But then I noticed it was getting frizzier and frizzier and starting to curl. This didn't happen till I was about in 5th grade.

    Thanks Ally,
    I'm not sure what her hair is doing...guess her and I are both in hair crisis. hehe My hair didn't curl until I hit puberty when hormones went nuts and took over my hair. It was fuzzy and wavy until then, about 4th grade I guess. I just want to grow her hair out and get a professional to give her the right due. Luckily her hair grows fast. Thanks for your reply:)

    I'm trying a no/low poo on her right now. I haven't used shampoo on her for 3 days, today co washed with Redken Fresh Curls, no brushing:) It looks and feels nice. We'll see how the rest of the weeks goes.

    AWW she's just so doggone cute!

    Whatever you doing, looks great to me. No brushing's a good idea. My little one's more in the 4 category but I'm a 3b....whatever you're doing now looks pretty good. A quick pass through my hair with a little oil of some type (sometimes plain ol' olive oil, sometimes another hair oil like African Hot Sixx Oil)....just a little though....under a plastic cap for a few minutes after washing and conditioning, then taking the cap off and rinsing some of it out.....works WONDERS for my hair. It seems to make my other products work even better.

    What a beautiful little girl! awww!!!
    Her hair is gorgeous. I think you should just let it be. Sometimes you don't know what type of hair they're going to have until they hit puberty. My cousin had hair like a Japanese girl and when she hit puberty it got curly and she went from straight to 3b.

    Thank you both Maria and Sinistra, her hair is jut getting straighter and straighter as the time goes. The back is thick and coarse and wavy and the stuff around her face is fine, thick and curly (3b stuff), I'm at a loss. I tried [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]curl keeper[/buylink], which looked nice but I"m just wonering what the heck is going on in back. You're right , who knows what it'll do until puberty even then years later it may change. I just added two new pix of her to my flickr account showing the front (curly) and the back wavy after I did no poo, acv clarify and a leave in co.
