baby girl - curls or cowlicks?
I know it's probably way too early to tell and her hair texture will probably change, but I wanted everyone's opinion. I have 2 boys (one with thick, course straight hair, and the other with fine hair that would probably be wavy if it were longer). My baby girl is 8 months old now with fine hair that is a lot thinner than either of the boys. She has a few areas in the front on the right side and on the back left that seem to stick up more than they did when they were shorter.

Pics are on my fotki. What do y'all think? Are those cowlicks or could they be the beginning of wavy hair?:blob2:

they definitely look like the beginning of curls! its probably not to early to tell either. my baby girl was born with straight hair,by the time she was around 3 months her hair looked alot like your little one "cowlicks", but as soon as they were brushed it would go back to being straight. by the time she turned one, she had permanent curls.

:blob2:Yay!! So I can join you all on this board?

Subbrock, your daughter's curls are beautiful!! I doubt mine will have hair that curly. DH's hair is stick straight and I'm more of a wavy, so I don't think the genes are there for super curly hair. After having 2 boys though, I long for a little me whose curls I can encourage at a younger age. When I was little I had ringlets at the nape of my neck, then when they were cut my hair sort of had a flip. My hair was always brushed then as a teenager I wondered why my hair seemed sraight but frizzy. I think I had waves all along but didn't know how to care for them.

I like the little curls that she got with the conditioner, so I may keep using it. I put a little bow in the front to tame the parts that stick straight up, and the curls were cute sticking up behind it. Is there anything else that anyone would use at this young of an age?

My boys had thicker hair and a lot of it, and we cut their hair very young (1 month for the 1st and 3 months for the 2nd). At what length/thickness do most people get their little girls' hair cut? I think it seems a little thinner because it is longer. Would I cut it at all if she had curls?

TIA!! :toothy8:

all natural or organic products would definitely be okay to use. if your little girl isnt sensitive to anything, then you could probably use other things. we like california baby products, kinky curly, and curl keeper.

im dreading the first haircut! my daughter is almost 2 and scissors arent going anywhere near her head. when i stretch her curls out they reach midback on her, but thanks to shrinkage her curls hover around shoulder area.
