  • It's probably the blow drying that is making it dry.
    Just try using a gentle conditioner and letting her hair dry naturally.

  • heat in any form will damage hair. towel blot it dry, comb it out, and let it air dry. Make sure you get her hair trimmed, even if it's just the ends to make sure all that damaged hair is coming off. you could also do a little conditioner on just the ends.

  • stop w/ the blow dryer and use a conditioner.

  • I have a blow dryer with a cool shot setting..where it blows cool air rather than hot..maybe you can get something like that to dry her hair to help prevent damaging from the heat?
    I don't know what shampoo you could use on her but what about trying a conditioner?

  • I started using my "adult shampoo" for my daughter when she was around 2-3 years old since she has such thick hair.....Use a good shampoo and conditioner just like you would use on your own hair and it will be gorgeous, I'm sure!

  • I started using adult conditioner on my daughter's hair quite young. She always needed good conditioning. Try it, and skip the blow drier.

  • get one of those dryers that have different settings. mine has hot, low, warm, and cool. I use the warm and cool settings for my daughter's hair. Johnson's baby shampoo should be good enough.
