    When did your LO's hair turn curly?? Both DH and I have very curly hair, I have ringlety, frizz that is naturally really curly and difficult to straighten and DH has thick hair that curls as soon as it gets long. DD has beautiful thick hair but it's poker straight. I kind of thought it was a given she'd have wavy if not really curly hair like us?? It's about an inch long right now. Is it just not long enough or has she escaped the curse of our huge bouffants?? Thanks in advance!!

    Edited to say, I'd love her to have curly hair as it's soooo cute but I also know the amount of time she'll spend straightening when she's older! Haha!

    As soon as my girls hair started to get longer it started to get curly. Probably around her first birthday x

    Around 8 months. He has a lot of hair...he was born with curls and then lost a lot of his hair and it grew in straight for the first couple inches, then curled. We just had it cut last week. It looked similar to Pebbie's daughter's hair in that photo (she is adorable btw).

    If you and your husband both have properly curly hair, your daughter should too :) https://genetics.thetech.org/ask/ask45 If hers is just an inch long then I think it should start to curl in a month or two.

    Mine is wavy. I think DH's must be wavy too but he keeps it too short to tell. LO has proper tight ringlets. I love them :cloud9: soooo cute.

    By 5 months, my lil Connor's straight haired turned curly - almost overnight! My husband's black and has tight curls, I'm mixed and have straight-slightly-wavy hair, and my little man has beautiful, loose curls. We're definitely struggling with his lovely locks. We use a wide-tooth comb to gently untangle his hair after baths, but still, his hair so easily tangles! What do you all do? Is there a special product or two that discourages tangles?

    My sons was completely straight at birth, lost his hair and it came back curly. He was around 13 months when it got longer and curling. Here is his curly mess! We currently buzz cut his hair with a big guard to keep it tamed :)

    Paige was very almost bald for ages. Here is her at 10 months (the redt if her head has no hair really)

    We knew it was going to be curly, it is taking its time to grow and is usually a frizzy mess... but if I spray with detangling spray and comb it, she has very tight little ringlets that are to die for. I dont do it often because as soon as she lies down/hood or hat on/ leans against skmething etc, it goes all frizzy again!

    Here is her frizz ball head!

    It was around 6 months that I started to notice the front getting a little wavy. Now at 10 months, he has definitely got very curly hair. It's almost identical to Jenniferttc1. I love his hair and he has so much of it (and he's blonde) but it's difficult to tame! I usually wet his brush in the morning and comb over it to try and take the frizziness away but it usually all goes to pot somewhere in the day. First thing in the morning it is a disaster. Takes bed head to a whole new level lol.

    My little man started curling at about six months, had fine full ringlets now, they'll be the bane of his life when older lol!

    Oh the dreaded bed head, or car seat head! My son loved to throw his head side to side in his car seat....we eventually had to cut his hair and do it every 3-4 weeks cause of the heat and humidity right now made his hair frizz badly, and tangle and he would have sweat coming down his face. But suave (spelling?) has a cheap detangler for kids I spray in his hair and comb and it leaves it perfect and neat:thumbup:.....until he goes and rubs his head on something else...:dohh:

We both have curly hair and brown/hazel eyes and she has straight hair and blue/green eyes!!! If it wasn't for he fact she's the image of DH I think he'd be asking questions!!!!

    My dd has super curly hair! I knew she would be since birth because when wet her hair would curl up completely even as a newborn then it would go straight. My 5 weeker is the same. It started to really curl by the time my dd was 10 months. By 1 she had a fro ;)
