I would think that it would depend on what gene is domanite. black hair is very strong and course but it doesnt grow long white hair tends to be finer and weaker but it grows longer...
black-white hair can break easy because it loses the strength of the black hair but it will grow longer like the white hair.

I was told that at one time that it depends on the hair. black hair is brittle and needs oil and conditioning more then white hair. so I would contition and oil the hair like any other black hair...unless she has oily oily hair to began with then I would shampoo and condition as you do.... ask a beautition they would know.... good luck!

Congratulations on your new baby! When she arrives, she will have her own brand of hair. Not all back hair is the same just like all white hair is the same. Wait til you see her and she has enough hair to worry about, then find out how to treat her individual hair.

Well, here is the point of view of one mixed child:
For years I agonized over my hair and the perception that it has to be tamed and subdued.

Now I let it be natural, curls and all....
First thing is to realize that "their hair" is really your hair and his hair. In this age of so much skin and haircare knowledge it would be unlikely that your daughter's hair would reach the point of becoming 'nasty'. Added to the fact that you seem vigilant about taking care of any hair issues.

Your daughter's hair may be either straighter or curlier depending on which gene is more dominant. Either way, I am sure you will love her hair.

Here is my 2 cents on how I take of my hair:

I wash my hair and condition it constantly. Any kind of frizz control product is good - Frizz Ease is good or any curl conditoner product. Another great product is Redken ringlet 07 curl perfector. Curly to kinky hair tends to be dry at times, so I use a glosser and Infusium which has panthenol to give hair a smoother texture.

For kids with curly hair it is important that you resist the urge to straighten the child's hair with a chemical relaxer - this could permanently damage the hair.

Later when your daughter is older, you can take her to the hair salon to have her hair blown out straight or set on hair rollers which gives controlled, beautiful curls.

Hi Freebubbles3:
Well mixed hair can be any variety of kinds of hair textures. However,the more natural it is left is the longer it will grow. Here's an example of how black hair can grow if left alone to do 'its thing' - Rastafarians will have very long hair (and it s their hair!), but if you take that same hair and subject it to a barrage of chemicals, then you have hair that appears as if it will never grow. Then if the person went natural or grew dreads (locs) the hair grows.
* I am sure there are exceptions to this rule...

My hair is healthiest when left alone in its most natural state. I do a lot buns and updos and large braids of my own hair in one, two and four braids. My sisters and I have very, very curly hair - so while I let my hair reach a little past shoulder length, my sister Angela's hair grows down past her butt.
