Biracial children's hair can sometimes be difficult to style because of the natural tight curls and springiness of the hair. Many people will get the child's hair relaxed or have it put up in tight braids. However, when the hair is worn naturally curly, it can be absolutely beautiful. There are many ways to style biracial children's curly hair.

Spiral Down

Biracial children can wear their hair down and curly, if their natural, spiralling curls are cared for correctly. One of the most important rules about maintaining curly hair is that it should not be washed more than once or twice a week. However, rinsing the hair each night is beneficial so there will not be a build-up of products on the hair. Biracial hair is naturally dryer than other types of hair, so washing it too often will deplete the hair of its natural oils. Another rule is that the hair must be detangled every day. The way to do this is to use detangler product or leave-in conditioner before you comb through the curls. Never comb through dry curls, or this will damage the hair. Once the hair is detangled, use a special hair oil or styling gel and scrunch the curls. Let them air dry. This will keep the curls from becoming frizzy.

Ponytail

Ponytails can be a beautiful and easy hairstyle on curly-haired children. However, there are some important upkeep rules about ponytails. The first rule is that the ponytail needs to be held in place with a cloth-covered band made specifically for hair. Rubber bands and ponytail holders with metal on them are too harsh on curly hair. They will pull the hair out and get tangled easily. The second rule is that the ponytail should not be too tight so the hair and scalp do not become damaged. Biracial curly hair can be fragile, and it needs to be taken care of. The third rule about ponytails is that they should never be worn to bed. The hairband could end up in a tangled disaster in the morning. The best way to preserve curls during sleep is to sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase or use a silk or satin sleeping cap.

Loose Braids

Loose braids are another way for biracial children to show off their lovely curls. Braids that are too tight often pull on the child's scalp and can be very painful. Looser braids provide an opportunity for beautiful stray curls to hang by the face while the rest of the hair is pulled back into a braid. To create a loose braid, take the hair into three sections. Braid the hair like usual, but do not pull it too tight. Make sure the hair has leave-in conditioner or oil in it to keep it from becoming frizzy. Add a little extra product to the hair where the braid is secured, and scrunch it so the hair at the end of the braid will spiral into ringlets.
