I have mixed nationality kids, I know you could never tell by how different they all look from each other lol, but Asher is the hair that took me the longest to master despite my own hair being curly. While her hair is still completely wet I use Original Sprout Hair Detangler (its a natural product) & brush it out completely. Then I put Care Free Gold Curl Activator all over her hair & just leave it to dry. It turns out so cute & no need for mousse. I know not all curls are created equal but it make work for your kiddo.
