    My son is 7 months old and his hair sucks up grease like it's nothing. I oil his head twice a day but it still doesn't seem like enough. It becomes brittle and has knots. Are there any ideas or products that you guys think might help in my battle to keep my son with healthy hair? I don't know if the color of his hair might have anything to do with it. His hair is red and the family members that have red hair have the same problem except they are older so I don't wanna use the chemicals they use on my baby! But does anyone have heads up on this?:baby:

    Sometimes fine textured black hair can get gritty if not washed regularly. To keep some of the heavy grit away, you may want to use baby oil, and wash it more often. Don't be fooled, because lighter hair takes on a more "dirty" appearance. I used bees-wax on my daughters hair as a baby, this totally protects the hair, and holds a while between washings. Maybe some Pink Oil Moisturizer. Also, try to stay away from petroletum based products like coconut greases, Blue Magic, etc, they are a magnet for sand and lint. Good luck:spinstar:

    Okay well see that's what I was using was petroleum based products. So a thinner oil will work better? Gotcha! Thanks so much!!!
