Is there a way to straighten DD's hair without harsh chemicals?

DD is mixed race: Hispanic/Caucasian and she has her father's curly, textured hair and it drives me insane! It's so hard to take care of that I've thought about having it professionally done but I don't want to ruin her hair. I've tried using Aussie 3 minute miracle and Schwarzkopf Zero Frizz corrective hair serum to straighten; no go. It's still frizzy and poofy when I straighten it. Any suggestions?

  • My friends daughter has hair like that. Im not sure exactly what she uses but its some type of lotion she gets at cvs in the hair section. I wouldnt straighten it in the long run that tends to ruin their hair.

  • detangler spray is all you need at that age. My daughter is AA but with curly hair, not kinky and all I use is childrens detanglers and it smooths out her hair. For special occassions ( i know this may be frowned upon) I flat iron her hair. Its not permanent and hair can revert back.

  • wash it and blow dry it using a brush

  • blow drying curly hair even with a brush can make it poofy and frizzy. Washing, condition and bread while wet is good too. It will have nice formed curls and easy to detangle.

  • if it's anything like black/white girls hair it's probably beautiful. i love when mixed girls wear their hair natural.
