Transracial Hair and Skin Care - Questions for Dr. Brooke Jackson
When parents adopt transracially, their child’s hair and skin may be very different from their own. Parents who have hit some snags while learning to care for their child’s African-American, Latino, Asian, or biracial hair and skin had the chance to send their questions to board certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon Dr. Brooke Jackson. The online chat covered everyday ethnic skin care and hair care, as well as dry skin and other problems brought on by cold winter weather.
The chat took place on Tuesday, November 15, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST in the "Transracial Hair and Skin Care – Expert Chat with Dr. Brooke Jackson" discussion thread. That page will remain live so that AFC members who weren’t able to make the chat can read through the discussion.
Read the questions AdoptiveFamiliesCircle members submitted ahead of time in the comments below.
Brooke Jackson, M.D., is the Medical Director of the Skin Wellness Center of Chicago. Her specialties include ethnic skin care, laser therapy and skin cancer prevention. Dr. Jackson is the adoptive mom of three young children, and she is currently writing a book about transracial adoption and beauty.
