The biggest idea we can throw your way is conditioner conditioner! Make sure you are adding moisture to the crown of glory of your little one. Curly, frizzy, hair needs rinse through conditioner that you can use every time you shampoo her hair (recommend 2 times a week not more).
Her hair would also love to have a conditioner that she can spray on during the day and that can act as a leave in. Lastly, a deep conditioning treatment that you can give her one day a week. You can also co-wash as opposed to shampooing all the time. All these actions contribute towards preserving moisture. Moisture means that her hair will be more soft and pliable.
Numerous parents, with biracial kids, also chose protective styles like braids and twists. These are perfect for controlling tangles and breakage. If you don’t know how to braid your daughters hair, just take her to a salon once. While at the salon, just watch and learn so you can do it at home (saves you some money). Watch for tightness as that can stress the hair follicles and therefore lead to permanent hair loss. <—- not good!
Before your take some shears to your precious jewel’s head, first start off with some deep conditioner and keep a hair regime: Decide on a day you will be deep conditioning, use a daily spray as a leave in and try a protective styling like braiding. If you must proceed with cutting, I would go to a stylist who is experienced. The haircut will be more feminine and pretty and you may find another hairstyle that you like.
