Never had a hair product stain, just body creme that had a "chocolate" scent and was colored brown. It wasn't hard to imagine why?? there were brown stains on my tennis socks.
I don't use salon products, so can't recommend anything like what you're using--my hair doesn't care for the chemicals that are usually found in them. I'm not sure you need to go organic, there are lots of lines with more natural ingredients. My hair prefers the products from the online, boutique type companies such as Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, Spiral Solutions, Komaza, Marie Dean, Donna Marie.
I was going to suggest using a "jelly" type product. Most are moisturizing, provide some curl enhancement and hold. There are a lot of very good ones out there.
My hair satiates on products, so I rotate what I use. Seldom use any one thing more then twice a week. Depending on where you live and what the weather is like (if it's dry and cold, you may want to use a leave in for the winter) would possibly make a difference in what I'd suggest as a start. Many folks stay away from glycerin when the dewpoint is very high or very low. My hair doesn't seem to mind.
I just started to use the Curly Kinks products last week and had great hair. Did a review in the review sections.
The Coil Jam might be just right for her. I'd also recommend the Satin Roots LI, if you're going to use a second product. Don't know what you use to cleanse, but the Twirly Curl Cleanse is really mind with a coco b low on the list. That will also enhance her curls depending on what you were using previously.
The Donna Marie Curling Gelly might also be good for her, but it does have glycerin. Her shampoo is the only one I use on my hair, if I need something a little stronger then a cleansing conditioner. I don't use the detangler/leave in because it doesn't provide me with enough moisture. I do use most of the other products. Depending on the length of your daughter's hair, the detangler may be of use for you--if she does tangle.
