I have a 20 month old who is 1/2 white and 1/2 african. she has very tight curls. I have been using mixed chicks conditioner and also there leave in. I am wonder if there is something that works just as good that is not expensive. I buy the big bottle which is $45 plus shipping. I conditioner her hair daily and wash it 1x a week. The leave it does define her hair but makes it kind of stif. If I use less leave in then it is frizzy. I happened to be in costco and say Nexxus so I bought it today to try it out. Any ideas. I really would like to try something a little less expensive. Here is a pic
