I am the mother of a white/African American daughter. Her hair is is also a mix.(not all African American or white texture to it) Her hair is very thick shoulder length and very, very curly. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to comb her out after a wash. Her curls are so pretty while they are wet. However after combing it will dry and become very frizzy and wild. I am scared to relax her hair dont want to use chemicals on her. I did have her hair treated with Karitin one time but it di nothing to help relax the curl or make it easy to comb. So what should I do. What products will help relax her curl so that it is easy to comb and keep her curls pretty not frizzy. Should I relax her hair? If so what products are safe for kids? Any suggestions would be so helpful. She is now eleven and I am at my wits end. I would love for her to be able to comb and style her own hair sometime soon but because of how thick/ hard to deal with, her hair is that may never happen. PLEASE HELP THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
