The two products I like to use when braiding my daughters' hair are Darcy Botanical products- the Coconut and Cupuacu Butter or Avocado and Honey twisting Cream (these run about 12 bucks each)....IMO both maintain moisture level pretty good...sometimes I like to use plain coconut oil. i usually do a quick rebraid every week though....thats just me. I also make sure she sleeps with a cap on.

How old is your baby? I, personally, don't leave styles - even protective ones - in for longer than 3-4 days and my daughter is 2! I don't feel like it's "protecting" much anymore once it's sooo frizzy (I worry about breaking off where it's frizzing, too)

I think it's better to only leave them a few days, take them down, moisturize again, change up the parts and then rebraid. Especially on little heads! But that's just me.

have you tried original sprout's baby balm? I've heard it's great for styling.

some hair types especially looser textures are prone to come undone and/or frizz easy. If the hair only likes to stay for a week I say follow the hair instead of trying to make it stay. My hair will not stay for longer than a week even if i use a product with hold.
