Hi Parents, need recommendation for taking care of kids hair. My kids are mixed race and their hair gets easily tangled to the point where we spend an hour to untangle the mess. Hair is also dry and the conditioner and or oil doesn’t seem to help. What are some of your go to products and routine? TIA

A detangling brush like this is a life saver

Thank you. Yesterday, we ordered the Felicia leatherwood detangling brush. Any recommendation for process such as conditioner etc

> Hair is also dry and the conditioner and or oil doesn’t seem to help

My boys are mixed, but they have very different hair. One matches this description.

Weekly, we at at least use conditioner and detangle every knot. We slather his head with argan oil running our fingers through to make sure it’s a full, even application. His hair naturally curls back up.

Daily, we lightly pick it out to hep with knots and give it a little volume. We spritz with a little water. Not enough to thoroughly wet his hair, but a light mist. We liberally apply Curlsmith styling soufflé which has a moisturizing aspect to it as well.

What are you doing to the hair at night? It’s really important (unless you are keeping their hair super close cut), to braid or twist it before they go to bed and either have them wear a silk hair scarf/bonet or sleep on silk pillowcases. One of the top causes of knots is the friction from loose hair rubbing on Cotten. Also if the hair is curly, don’t comb/brush while it’s dry. Spray a bit of water or leave in to moisten the hair and comb while damp. Finally, don’t wash daily. On the product side, it really is trial and error, but the key is to keep it moisturized.

Wife and I have 2 kids with curly and dry hair. We have refine our routine over time but I recommend you take a seat for constant trial and error experiments.

Currently, we only condition their hairs once weekly with (Shea Moisture Daily Hydrating Conditioner 100% Virgin Coconut Oil 34 oz
From Costco ), use argan oil (One 'n Only Argan Oil For Hair Dry Hair Treatment 8oz from Amazon) daily to lock in the moisture especially during the cold or dry times. Every week or so we go to Global Foods to buy aloe Vera, cut it open, and comb the juice out as a natural conditioner — fridge what is left for later.

For night time, I would buy silk bonnets or something else to lock in the moisture. For a daughter, learn how to braid to protect the hair. Once the hair is nicely moisturized, scalp healthy the detangling will get easier.

PS. We use the Shea shampoo for kids once a month or sometimes more if there are a lot of product build-up. Home this helps.

MBB em level role vs. director level tech (non FAANG) exit? Coming from b4, roughly 10 yoe. I know it’s probably a personal preference thing but hoping to get opinions here. Tech role is $190k base plus a 30% target bonus. MBB role i got a verbal offer without a comp figure yet but my understanding is it’s around there, maybe 10-20% higher (or maybe much higher depending on bonus).

Didn’t fully expect to get the MBB offer honestly, but both beat my 180/198 b4 comp. Now i’m torn.

To all the fellow sales reps,

Talk shit, get hit… with reality.

Stay hungry, but also stay HUMBLE.

As 2022 comes to an end, we have quotas to meet and competition to beat.

Take some heed from marketing and care about the customer journey. After all, it is the holidays and the feels of warm and fuzzies will always pay.

Turns out they want you to push covid tests (free if insured) to anyone and anywhere you can. Basicallyhang out in parking lots. Payment is $20/test. Wasn't anything that they advertised $20-30/hr +commissions/bonus, potential 80k 1st yr).

Am I tripping? Everyone loves calling my daughter (2 months) "lil chocolate drop" or "look at all that chocolate". I love my daughter's complexion, not only because it's mine, but because it's beautiful. However, I can't help but feeling like ppl "other" or make it weird by avoiding saying dark. Calling her dark is acceptable and appreciated. I know "chocolate" comes from a place of affection, but I just can't embrace it 💯.

Doctor says I have it, but I honestly don’t believe them. I don’t eat cane sugar (not even in sauces), gluten, dairy, or soy.

The condition doesn’t run in my family (and my mom has 4 sisters w/kids-good sample size) (cont’d in comments)

I’m a little bit all-over the place and not sure where to start financial planning from.

I live in a Tier-1 city and think it’s necessarily to move to Tier-3. It’s important that my kids grow up in a house vs. apartment. Also need to stretch my dollar as far as possible.

Total comp - $180K

How much should I budget for the 1st year of baby?
