Default Pony Tails...ugh!

Is there anything I can use on my daughters fine 3b/c hair that will keep her hair slicked down when in a pony tail? She ALWAYS has flyaways no matter what I do....

I guess you've tried barrettes and headbands (ones that won't tear at her hair, that is)? Then again, maybe her hair would look just as pretty not slicked down. Well-moisturized, curly locks springing up around her head probably looks really sweet! (What can I say -- I have 3b hair myself, and now that I'm caring for my curly hair properly, I look at my curly flyaways completely differently. They're not at all as bad as I used to think they were! ) HTH

I agree with Devushka regarding the curly fly-aways. But I do start out with aloe vera gel lightly applied over my hair to help calm whatever fly-aways might be somewhat controllable. AVG is my go-to product for ponytails and updos because it smooths my hair without it looking and feeling too stiff.
