There are alot of things you can do, but I'd need to know what the problem is before I can really help. Some basic tips:
Wash weekly, not daily. Condition daily.
Do NOT brush it when it's dry, use a detangler and soak it if it's dry, or comb it out when she has conditioner in it in the tub, and braid it immediately to prevent tangles. It's about PREVENTING tangles with biracial hair. Makes things easier.
Always braid it before bedtime, the hair gets dry when it's laid on and putting it up will prevent tangles.
Use a moisturizer in her hair without mineral oil. Try olive oil, shea butter, or pink oil moisturizers. Africa's best has some REALLY good organic moisturizers for kids.
Pretty much just keep it very conditioned, not "wet" looking, but put some weight in the curls and they'll spiral, not kink.
