        shampoo and conditioner? No. Shampoo is a cleansing agent that strips the hair of oils, sweat, buildup, etc. Conditioner adds oils and proteins to make the hair smooth.

          really?

          never use a boar bristle brush against a knot.
          use a conventional brush to de-tangle first, then boar bristle to finish. if you come across a tangle, put the boar bristle down and deal with it using the regular brush.
          all that said, i'd strongly advise against you getting involved with boar bristle brushes and stay the FRICK away from heat styling of all things when we're talking about a little girl being cared for by a man who thought shampoo was the same thing as conditioner. idk what that anon's smoking to suggest it, but i just really wanna make it clear that boar bristle is not for detangling.

          also, when detangling hair, only ever brush knots from the ends of the hair and work your way up. eg brush the bottom inch of her hair, then the bottom 2 inches, then the botom 3 inches etc. the opposite of how a boar bristle is used. this is because if you encounter a tangle at the very top of her hair, it's only going to get worse if you try to wrench it all the way down through all the other knots waiting below. that's when you risk damaging her hair. but if you take care of the bottom first, it's smooth sailing all the way down.

          my sister has one of these, I'm going to ask if she can let me borrow it or if she can get me one

            you have my condolences. also, you can get those brushes anywhere, like cvs or other places. they can get sold for like $2-4, and its not really something to lend either. It'd be like lending your toothbrush. Bring your daughter with you to the store, let her pick out the color or something so she can build positive associations with her self care stuff.
            desu, youre teaching both yourself and her about how to take care of something so inherent to self perspective. its best to avoid taking shortcuts, perhaps, though i'd still ask the sister to help her figure out some things too.

    Is she black or milk-chocolate? Not even asking this to call her a monkey, but their hair is naturally more dry/frizzy, which is why they always sell that hair oil in the black hair section.

    1.Use delicate hair products that actually make hair silky.
    2.Shampoo less, or as little as you can.
    3.Ask the hair stylist for some tips when you go (get some recommendations on what products to use.)

    I also have fizzy hair and i use hair masks before shampooing, i put them on before so i can protect my hair from the shampoo, any shampoo can damage it if they're damaged already.
    Then after shampooing it (with the right shampoo) and drying it, i put on a hair repair treatment with spray.

    That's not the end because then you need a boar bristle hairbrush like pic related. Put the brush under a big hairlock, starting from its top, use a blowdryer and iron her hair. Not too much heat, but heat is crucial to style hair.

    Not an expert but this is what i do.

          You want to avoid touching scalp with a brush or comb as much as possible, so the answer is no if you do it right

            Not if you do it right
            If you frick it up and the brush gets tangled up in her hair, just slide something long between the hair and brush and gently pull it out

            it looks rough ill try it
            she gets knots sometimes i don't wanna pull them out

            If you've not been using conditioner that may be why. The conditioner will make the hair smoother, and therefore easier to brush knots out with less pain

            Kids be moving around a lot, and I remember I used to get huge knots even when I used conditioner as a kid, not so much now. In that case, get a small comb, hold a higher part of the hair so that nothing pulls on the scalp, and gently tease out the knot with a small comb

    Unironically buy the Dyson hair dryer. I have frizzy hair and it’s the only thing that works. The downside is it’s over $400 but you can get a refurbished one on eBay for about $200.

    Like other anons said, please use conditioner. Shampoo is supposed to clean the hair, conditioner makes it smooth. Also, if she has long hair, don't wash it every day. Invest in a shower cap and wash it a few times a week instead. Washing your hair every day can damage it. Finally, research the type of hair your daughter has! Hair care can really depend based on whether her hair is straight, wavy, curly, etc. so you'll want to check those out! Also, next time you go to her hairdresser, ask them for some tips. Usually hairdressers are pretty nice and don't mind providing some help.

      he covers all the different ways hair can be, so its worth skimming through and figuring out your kids hair types.
      in my experience, if your hair has a little wave/wiggle in your hair, you can probably encourage it to be wavier and itll benefit from the treatment. i shampoo, scratch/massage all over my scalp as i do so, rinse and condition for 3 minutes, then rinse that out and use air dry curl cream.
      instead of using a towel, comb through the hair then squeeze it with your hands/a towel. dont separate the natural curls, just squeeze. i find the process helps hydrate my hair, but hair oil/masks can help as well.
      good luck op, teaching her how to do this will help her for a lifetime. i had to teach myself semi-recently, and its a lot of trial and error.

      I tried asking her stylist for tips for still nothing. ill try again
      and I'm going to take the advice from both of these. thanks
