Hi, my LO was born with bone straight dark hair as well but it's now waving a little. He my no means has tight curls yet,just gentle waves but I think it will get curlier as he gets older. Some others with mixed babies have said that skin doesn't really start to properly darken and hair curl until 6 months...just have to wait and see.
Well I am mixed (White/carribean) and had straight black hair when small which turned into tight curls. DH is White and LO's skin is White, dark brown straight hair with a loose curl on top and his new hair is growing back bone straight and lighter. I even found a very bright red hair in his head (mil is a redhead)!!!
Brady is mixed race and he has dark straight hair, it's kind of curling at the ends now it's a bit longer but not really the texture of 'afro' hair that I expected.
There is a girl on here who did ask a mum one week and I asked her this question, she posted a pic of her little girl at about 4 months and one after she was a year old and her hair had completely changed so who knows?!
Brady hasn't really got any darker since he was about 2 months old.
My little sister is mixed race and her hair was straight and silky to begin wirh. Ir only really started. Growing after she was a year old and is now quite tightly curled but not really afr9. It's still changing though so we will see how it ends up in a year or so I imagine.
Albert's Dad is half Caribbean with a brown afro and i have black hair with a slight kink.
So far Albert has dark brown downy straight hair. His skin is already darker than i thought it was going to be though!
My friend is mixed race and has straight hair and quite dark skin tone, her sisters both have tight curls, but their skin is far fairer than hers, so I think it just depends on which genes you get from which side of the family!
