1) Introduce yourself!  What is your age, grade, favorite books, movies, favorite quote, song? What is her favorite school subject? Favorite activity? Favorite thing to do in her free time?

Meet our Curlee Girlee of the Week, diva Aubrey J AKA Bree, as people like to call her. She is 3 years old and is from Southern California. She is mixed with Laotian, Black and Puerto Rican. Some of her favorite activities that she loves to do are being outdoors, going to the park and the beach as well as traveling. She sure knows how to have a good time!


2) Your curls! What is your hair curl type? If you don’t know, please check out our reference page here

 Based on the Curlee Girlee curly hair reference chart, Aubrey’s beautiful curls are in between two hair types: Spirally and Springy.


3) Who else in your family has curly hair? Check out our family tree here which is a fun and educational way to trace the legacy of your hair!

It turns out that Aubrey is not the only one in her family to have a beautiful set of curls! Aubrey’s mom says that her daughter’s curls come from both sides of the family. Aubrey’s dad had curly hair when he was younger and Aubrey’s grandma’s hair on her mom’s side dries wavy. We love that she is surrounded by family members with curly hair, who can give her the right curly hair advice! We also believe that having immediate access to curly haired family members can increase your child’s confidence in their own curly hair!


4)  How do you like to wear your hair?

Although she has the most beautiful curls, her hair is very versatile; she can wear it up or down and her curls still show.


5) How would you define your style?  (ie, are you a dress up girl, more casual, love to be fancy etc.  What is your favorite style for school, for dressing up, for each season, etc.

In terms of style, Aubrey’s mom says that her daughter is a dress up kind of girl, anything that involves sparkles, pink, glam, you name it she loves it.


6) Hair care tips!  What are some hair care tips you can share for taking care of your curly hair? Best advice for kids with curly hair?

 The best hair care tip Aubrey can give for kids in biracial families is to find the product that works best for you. Everybody’s hair is different, so not every product will work the same for everyone. That being said, you can find the right hair product that works best for your child by first finding out what your curly hair type is. You can then google which type of hair products work best for your hair type. We actually wrote an article about the 5 best natural products for curly hair that you can check out.


7) What do you wash and condition your hair with? How often?

Aubrey uses Original Sprout products for her hair care which is vegan and it always gives her hair the extra bounce.


8) How often do you wash your hair and why?

Aubrey’s mom says that she likes to wash her daughter’s hair in the morning at least once a week.


9) Are you a morning hair washer or an evening washer, why?

Aubrey’s mom says that Aubrey is a morning hair washer, just because it is more convenient for her.


10) If you do your hair at night and sleep on it, what do you do in the morning? Any tips for making the style last overnight?

Although Aubrey didn’t mention any tips to help make your hairstyle last overnight, there are a couple ways that you can maintain your curls. One of these ways is to place your child’s hair in a hair bonnet, more specifically a silk hair bonnet as it has been proven to be softer on your child’s hair. Another way to keep your child’s hair curly overnight is to braid them after washing so that the hair will stay in place when they sleep.

11) Has curly hair impacted your child and her self-image, please provide details on her “hair journey”.  Did she always love her hair or was it something that happened over time? 


Aubrey’s mom says that when Aubrey was born, she actually had straight hair and her curls did not start coming in until she was about 4 months old, but now she loves them!
