Biracial teen hair care

Our biracial teen has long light brown/blond (that has been straightened/relaxed). Any ideas on haircut styles to cut down on the thickness and bring out her beautiful facial features (which tend to get hidden behind her thick hair?

No need to cut it down because it'll just grow back awkward. Embrace the thickness, you don't want your child thinking something is wrong with her hair.

Try a few long layers to give it shape. Look at sites which discuss hair texturizes of biracial/multiracial children. Remember that her hair needs a good moisterizer in order to keep it from breaking.

Relaxing the hair makes it the hair shaft much more fragile so a good conditioner and daily moisterizer either used in the morning or night will keep her hair healthy. Covering hair with a scarf at night will make it more manageable for styling in the morning.
