shampoo recommendation?

my 3 yr old girl (Caucasian) has naturally curly hair but it seems like over the years we're basically ruining it and encouraging the curls to not be there... which is not our intention. Can someone plz suggest a nice shampoo/conditioner brand for us to try? something for kids (so like no crazy chemicals) that promotes the curls to be present? also... how the heck do I comb it whilst maintaining the integrity of the ringlets? LOL... boy I sure do have a knack for over complicating things. Oy. (PS i see at regular stores special shampoos/conditioners for bi racial or african american little girls. but her curls aren't nearly that plentiful or anything like that....??)

  • I second the Johnson & Johnson shampoo for curly hair.
    Also brush it out with a comb instead of brush.

  • Johnson and Johnson has, its either for curly hair or detangling... I have it but honestly cant remember.... Its the green one LOL.... And they have a detangling spray as well. My DD has ringlets, like crazy ringlets.... It looks like she has super short hair but its actually nearly 5 inches long already.... we use both of those and it seems to work for us. What kind of shampoo are you using and why kind of hair does she have? Does she have ethnic hair? My DD is white and puerto rican but got the white girl hair with tons of curls.....

  • im not sure about what shampoo or conditioner to use.. but only brush her hair when its wet. if not her hair will end up frizzy and out of control.

  • do not brush wet hair! it will break, cause split ends, and if there is curl present at all, damaged ends will begin to frizz.

  • Johnsons and Johnsons make a shampoo targeted towards curly hair.

  • Before buying or selling any body care products, it is important to check the safety of the ingredients. I like the Skin Deep database maintained by the Environmental Working Group (the folks who publish the guide to pesticides in produce).
