Heidi Klum is the latest model to pen a blog for the Huffington Post (Jessica Stam wrote about cell phone etiquette for Huffpo Canada in June). In "Caring for my Kids' Hair," Heidi waxes poetic on the challenges of just that. Apparently, three of her four kids (with musician Seal) have curly hair, while her daughter Leni (who has a different biological father) has straight hair. This, I realized, after much confusion, is why the blog appears in the "Black Voices" section of the online magazine.
I know from personal experience that "mixed" curly hair can be a major challenge that most people don't know what to do with and Heidi actually offers some pretty helpful advice. Maybe her next venture (after her forthcoming fragrance) should be a line of hair care. She explains,
Henry, Johan and Lou -- my three youngest -- have super beautiful locks. Their hair definitely requires a different kind of care than my daughter Leni's hair. I've learned to never brush their curly hair when it's dry because then it'll frizz. I use lots of conditioner and detangler, and only go to hairdressers who really KNOW how to cut and style curly hair.
Then, her kids decided they wanted "mohawks with special designs to them," so of course she reached out to Laker/Mr. Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom and got his hair stylist's contact info. Oh, to be a celebrity mom. What do you think she should write about next? Maybe something on how to maintain this figure after having four kids? Read the full post here.
