Do not fret! You just need some instructions
You should get this book called curly girl. I have it on my iPad and it has video showing you how to deal with curly hair. You can also just get it in paper on amazon. Just make sure you get the newest version. It is from the lady who invented the "deva curl" method. There is a whole section for kids and "ethnic" hair. You do not have to spend a bunch of money on products. I use cvs brand sulfate free shampoo,suave naturals conditioner, and fruitis gel. All pretty cheap stuff. The thing to remember is that many of us curly girls grew up hating our hair. Let your sweet one know how beautiful she is and how cool it is to be naturally curly.
