Funny I just responded to one of these... Anyways dry is an easy fix although it does take some effort. Depending on her hair courseness actually does change what products to use.I use Hair lotion on my daughter and morrocan oil on it when straightening it. Hair lotion can be bought anywhere, even walmart. I have used two different brands, luster's and olive oil. I personally prefer olive oil.Thicker, coats better, has tons of different types of products and it does not smell like alcohol.

Moroccan oil can be used even without straightening and is over all a pretty good product. Name brands do vary and results obviously do. I buy mine from Sally's Beauty supplies. They are also pretty much located everywhere. While you're there ask for something called hair placenta, it is a great deep conditioner that cost less than $2. Also you can do the old fashioned way and get a hot oil treatment. It won't do a ton but used once a week it should start forcing some moisture back into her hair.

Make sure you never brush it while wet, that will break it. Never straighten it while wet, blow dry it first. If you do straighten it do it no more than once a week. Too much heat will cause damage. If she gets it wet braid it over night to make some waves to the curls. Or go buy some care free curl. It will keep the curls from poofing out too much.
