Looking for a NYC-area multi-ethnic family for national talk show

If you know a family that has a mixed-heritage daughter of African-American descent between the ages of 4 and 11 years old that lives in the NYC area who is struggling with self-esteem or identity issues especially as it is tied to day-to-day hair care, please contact us. We are attempting to help a national talk show in planning for a "self-esteem make over" show featuring our Sunflower Advisory Board's clinical psychologist, Dr. Jeff Gardere. If you want some insights into the topics that will be discussed, please visit and click on the Advice for Moms tab. The Conversation Starters that you find there will be core to the show. If you know a family like this, or if this describes you, please write to us by responding to this post. We'd also like to view pictures of you and the whole family...but please do not post phone numbers on the blog....just an e-mail address will be fine. We'll be in touch with you soon!

Thank you so much for this product. My daughter enjoys her hair so much.She has no problems combing her hair.

I have two mixed-race daughters (2 sons also!). My oldest who is 12 1/2 wears her hair chemically straightened and my younger, who will be 8 in May, has much looser curls, similar to your daughter. Abby (my youngest) is obsessed with also wanting her hair to be straight. I'm going to
purchase this product to try on her hair. I think it'll make mornings much easier and eliminate the frizz that happens throughout the day. We live in Alexandria VA and would be most interested in participating in a discussion on self-esteem for mixed-race children. I've found that hair issues are huge in our house with lots of jealously over my eldest having her hair straightened while my youngest does not. Not to mention my own straight hair. My email address is I would also be willing to post pictures but am unclear how to do that.

Thanks, Lori

My daughter is adopted. She 4 years old and is dark black and we are a mixed racial family. Her hair is naturally very kinky and dry that could only be kept in cornrows and box braides. Your hair relaxer has given her the option of wearing it in pony tails or french braides. She is very self conscious of her darker skin and "fluffy" hair. We work hard to build up her self esteem. She is naturally beautiful, but having hair more like her friends and family has helped her see the beauty herself.
