The Park Bench The Park Bench

Attention all moms with curly hair children-I need your help!!!

My daughter has ringlets. After she has a bath her hair curls beautifuly (I've been told she looks like Shirley Temple), but once she wakes up she has this 'fro. The thing is, her hair is taking it's time to all come in (my hair and my sisters hair did as well) and she has fine hair as well, so finding products for her hair that doesn't turn her hair disgusting is quite tricky. 

I put about a tablespoon of products into a spray bottle and fill the rest with water, but I want to find a product that I don't have to do that with. So what I'm asking is this: does anyone know of any curly hair products that's made for fine hair???

I don't want to spend tons and tons of money trying to find products that work, so if anyone has any ideas or tips, I would be so thankful.

Thank you.

 I like Herbal Essence No More Frizz and then Just a 10 Leave in conditioner.  I also had to make sure that I do not use a blowdryer at all to prevent the huge poofball that will inevitably result.  If I don't have leave in conditioner, I wont rinse all of the conditioner out of my hair and that works okay.  Also, unless you absolutely have to, don't wash it everyday.

 I always used a bit of anti frizz spray or serum on her hair when it was humid...She still uses the serum today

I have two textures in my hair. The ringlets and down to the scalp the "kinky" hair. same with my girls. I wash, deep condition, and use herbal essence split end proctector and "seal" the moisture in with a oil (olive, cocount, avocado,etc) when my or their hair feels dry I spray a homemade moisturizer in our hair. Its green tea, honey, and Rosemary oil to remoisturize our hair.

It really helps to shampoo, wash out, condition, leave it in, then wash up her body... then after her body is washed, rinse out the conditioner. It will help a lot with the frizz to begin with. Other than that. I LOVE John Freida products... a VERY little bit of frizz-ease goes a long way, and I have THICK curly hair. Other than that, a light hold mousse will help a lot... now as for the big mess of curls when she wakes up... that's just how curls are! lol you can't have beautiful curls 2 days in a row without at LEAST wetting it down.. at least, I can't! (If anyone has any solutions to this, please let me know!) Even then, it won't come out the same unless you actually wash it again. OH and don't use a brush on her hair! Use a wide tooth comb! lol

My ds2 has curly hair but its not too long so I just carefully comb it and its not an issue.

Good luck
