Heidi Klum on taking care of her kid’s hair

I was perusing Huffington Post and saw an article that Heidi Klum wrote about caring for her kids hair. Good but brief post for the mom’s out there with interacial kids or adopted kids who may not know how to care for thicker/curly hair. Here is an excerpt:

Having four children, with one having straight hair and three curly, it’s a bit of a new world for me. Growing up with straight hair myself, that was all I really knew how to work with. It was pretty straightforward: wash, air dry, done.

Henry, Johan and Lou — my three youngest — have super beautiful locks. Their hair definitely requires a different kind of care than my daughter Leni’s hair. I’ve learned to never brush their curly hair when it’s dry because then it’ll frizz. I use lots of conditioner and detangler, and only go to hairdressers who really KNOW how to cut and style curly hair.

    Wonderfully intelligent and informative comments. Let the truth be told, many people of color, who are not European don’t have a clue about caring for highly textured hair. I see it all the time. It really makes my heart ache to see children whose hair isn’t at its potential because the parent doesn’t have enough initiative (minimally) to learn.

    I completely agree. My thing is to at least TRY. It’s obvious the parents who aren’t even trying

    I really like Heidi Klum I think she is a good interracial family role model. In her interview statement she never said that her children’s hair was crazy,kinky,a wild mess, or anything negative. She simply put it as “beautiful locks………that requires a different kind of care.” Goes to show that even a high fashion super model can handle a little texture and not totally freak.

  • Thanks for share. Good parents are those who know and care about children’s needs.:D
