  • I don't know. I use Aussie's 3 minute miracle every night on my daughter's hair, she is 3 and it keeps it healthy looking. What kind of bands do you use?

  • Just leave it down and wash it regularly. Make sure to use moisturizing children's shampoo to keep her hair healthy. Otherwise there's nothing more that you need to do. Keeping it up too often can not only damage it, but it can cause the hair to grow in the style you put it up in the most. So just leave it down, wash it regularly, and make sure to just keep it healthy. The hair will repair itself.

  • Use a conditioning treatment on her hair like Dove

  • Take the bands etc out of her hair at night so they dont cause damage.
