How your Biracial child’s skin color and hair will change as they grow.
With Biracial children there is no rule of whether or not they will be white, brown or tan. Their hair may be blond, brown, red or black. You never know. Since all children are different, yes, biracial children, I will share my journey from birth through now (6) of Charleigh’s transformations.
Mind you I am ivory. No, I seriously have no pigmentation unless I am sunburnt. I hate it. Her father on the othe rhand is a very deep brown with a red undertone to his skin. I had no idea what to expect I just knew I would love her.
When she was born she was white. She had straight silky black hair. Now within a couple of days she did get a little more “color” but was still fr from the beautiful tan color she is today. Also, her hair was thick, but as she got older it thinned out because her head was growing.
It didn’t take as long as you would think for her hair to grow. I used baby oil in her hair at first, but it was drying her hair out. I then started using baby lotion which worked a little better, but I was on a journey to find something.. The Johnson’s Baby Shampoo Moisturizing formula in the blue bottle was a lifesaver for me. I also started using a conditioner with Argan and no alcohol behind that.
Now the curls came, and I started to understand shrinkage. This is when I sought out different products I started with the just for me line from Walmart. I used a leave in conditioner and a curl cream. If I really wanted to dress her I would use a tiny bit of gel.
As you can see her skin color didn’t change a lot. During the summer she has an amazing tan and gets very dark tan. Her hair on the other hand did, and it is now super curly, I simply use Garnier Fructis hair care products for the most part. She won’t let me do all of the finger curls and twists anymore. Charliegh loves her pony tails and the occasional flat iron.
