Default 7 year old's texture is changing

Hi all, I'm a newbie here with a few questions. I have a beautiful 7 year old daughter with curly red hair (think Debra Messing red).

A few weeks ago (maybe 5), I noticed that underneath her hair, she had a section of hair that changed from loose curls to very super kinky hair. As soon as she gets out of the shower, that section would be dry in a few minutes because it was so dry. I then noticed a section on the other side. It was underneath so you really couldn't tell.

My hairdresser said it isn't anything I'm doing or not doing, it's just her hair.

I'm beginning to wonder if the chlorine in the pools can cause the texture change. She was swimming a lot for the past few days and I can definitely see it getting worse. I know chlorine can dry hair, but can it change the texture?

She is unhappy with the way it looks, and I want to try to fix it if I can. She definitely needs more moisture.

I don't blow dry her hair. I use Bumble and Bumble products on both of us. Maybe they're not the right products for her.

I would really appreciate any help or insight.

Thanks!

Maybe her hair is changing- a lot of us have hair that changed during our childhood- though it's usually when much younger than 7, or during puberty, but it can change at anytime. If so, it's best to encourage her, and assure her that her tighter-curls are no less beautiful.

I think some of the Bumble and Bumble products have silicones which could be drying out her hair. I'm not sure which ones you are using. If you could tell us your routinge and the products you are using, I am sure a lot of people would be able to help.

Share your routine with her. Show her how you take care of your curls and she will be set
