At that age I would have them do it themselves.  It won't be perfect, but nothing in life is.

I keep my sons hair short because he doesn’t wash properly. I realize you can’t do that with as easily. He also acts like he’s going to instantly drown if he gets water in his face. He’s gotten better though. I’d get her to try and do it and see if that helps. One thing that helps is brushing it before getting in the shower and it’s pretty much no tangles when brushing after shampoo and conditioner. Also maybe using detangler spray?

DD hated me washing and brushing her hair at that age. Her hair was long mid back. So we cut it to her shoulders and she cried about short hair. But no more screaming about washing and brushing her hair.

Every kid goes through stages hang in there this too shall pass.

We do all of that and she doesn’t wash it she doesn’t even get her hair wet before she try’s to add shampoo

No, definitely not. My almost-11 year old is just now almost out of that stage. She mostly brushes well enough and often enough and conditions enough to not get knots (she has "my" hair which is very knotty- wearing a coat for a day will get a big knot or 2 in your hair, and sometimes just sleeping will :-( ).

I know I fought and cried into middle school even (not daily, but with bad knots). My 9 year old complains too, but she only gets bad knots a few times a year. Her hair is so much smoother!

Washing isn't really our issue, since they've showered alone for years, but brushing continues to be, and they are great at making their hair LOOK shiny without fully brushing- and a day or 2 later, we have pain!

My 5 year old used to. Her hair is very thick, long and curly so it gets tangled easy. She is pretty good most of the time now and will brush it on her own, although I go back and brush it again to make sure all of the tangles are out. We usually try to braid it overnight so that it doesn't get so tangled while she is sleeping.
