depends on what you are doing with it.. if you want a more tamed cure.. first try a detangler.. like pink lotion (it's a type of detangler for hair).. then comb (not brush) it out. Do not shampoo more than every 3 days.. her hair does not produce enough sebum and her hair is too coarse for it to penetrate to actually make it that dirty anyways and you will only further damage the hair. There are oils and gels to help coat the hair to give it shine, and tame the frizz (if you can't afford higher end products, a cheap solution is vaseline, although this can make the hair look extremely greasy, especially if the hair density is thin). Do NOT chemically alter the hair, it's too dangerous to the hair and the skin of a child that young. Also try to detangle when conditioning the hair in the tub.. this helps when you get out. cont.
