My children's hair was not as curly as what you're anticipating for your newborn, but I used to rub EVOO on their heads. I mostly did this to keep their tender skin moisturized and help with cradle cap (my babies didn't have much hair at birth, it grew in curly later), but I'm thinking this shoud work for keeping the hair soft and moisturized as well. I had my babies before I knew anything about CG, so I always used baby shampoo to wash their hair, but only about once a week.

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
