Heidi Klum: I’ve Learned the Hair Care Needs of All My Children

When Heidi Klum welcomed her first child — daughter Leni, now 7 — the model never thought twice about her little girl’s locks.

“Growing up with straight hair myself, that was all I really knew how to work with,” Klum, 38, writes in an essay for the Huffington Post. “It was pretty straightforward: wash, air dry, done.”

However, shortly after starting a family with husband Seal — the couple are now parents to Henry, 5½, Johan, 4½, and Lou, 22 months — Klum quickly found herself in uncharted waters when it came to her children’s hair care needs.

“Henry, Johan, and Lou — my three youngest — have super beautiful locks,” she raves. “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.”
