Product for 5 year old girl? Pic

My hair is 3A/3B. My daughter's hair is more wavy and than curly, but I think with the proper product it could be less messy looking. We live in a state with zero humidity which doesn't help. She doesn't have a lot of patience so I'm searching for a product she can add to her hair without much fuss. I've tried mousse and leave-in conditioner in the past - not great results either way. She's starting kindergarten in the fall and I would rather she didn't look like a ragamuffin!

She's very cute. I think my hair was similar at that age, but it's too long ago to remember. Kinky curly has a childrens line--Tiny Twists. I like the Moisturizing Styler. Probably more than the Curling Custard. Homemade FSG might also be a good product for her to try, in addition to okra gel (newly discovered and not as much about that.) There are tons of threads about how to make FSG.

Here's a link to the Kinky Curly products. And here are some other products for kids with curly hair.

FSG= Flax seed gel.

Here's a basic recipe for you:

1 cup water
2 tbsp flax seeds
Bring water and flax seeds to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes. Strain and keep it in the fridge for up to a week.

You are beautiful!
Thanks for all of the suggestions!
my daughter is also 5 and starting K soon. but hers is more 2b/c. I let her pick out a Suave Naturals at the store and she mostly co/detangles herself these days. She hates it when I do it (she says it hurts). Suave has great slip and lots of fun 'flavors', bonus: it's cheap!

I plan on getting her a satin pillowcase, only problem is her head rarely stays on the pillow.

I figure she's only 5, as she gets older she will get better at her hair and want to take care of it more. Also have you watched Harry Potter? In the beginningHermione has really crazy hair, but later on it gets sooo much better. So I figure it will get better as she gets older/more experienced/more conscious.
2b/c with some 1 and 3a tendencies. fine-medium, still searching for the HG..... Hair Bio
I am a newbie here, and in the exact same boat. I'm hoping to get some type of process down before school starts in September, but I don't think I'm there yet with the products I have.
I've been using VO5 conditioner to give her hair slip in the shower so I can comb out the knots, then CurlFriend LI Conditioner. She still has lots of knotting and flyaways, though. (She's my profile pic). She still dreads the detangling process, so I'm not sold on the conditioners we're using. Will have to keep hunting once I get another paycheck!
Hi, I will be watching this forum. My daughter is eight and I am still looking for styles that last more than three days! I mean a whole routine that keeps moisture in and all

My daughter is 4 and will be 5 pretty soon. she doesn't like her curls because it reminds her of Mother Gothel from repunzul. I want to embrace her curls, which are like 3B. My hair is also curly but have never really embraced my curls and don't want to make the same mistake with her. I'm scared to put any items on her hair as I don't want to damage her hair so young. I would love to be able to leave her hair down and to look cute and natural, without them looking dry and wild .

It's funny, Mother Gothel is my 3 year old daughter's favorite character in Rapunzel...She watches the movie again and again but wants it stopped before "The Mommy flies away..." I think Mother Gothel reminds my daughter of me , (before I put copper color in my hair). She doesn't perceive Mother G as bad, even though we explain to her that Mother G is technically the "bad guy" in this story. Mother Gothel is such an interesting, complex character. She's one of my favorite Disney characters. However, it's probably a good thing that your little girl doesn't want to identify with "the bad guy"! Disney really needs to make some more curly haired heroes!

My daughter has a few Disney Princess dolls, and she has them share clothing, and she likes to "do" their hair (The Rapuzel one is a real pain with all that matted straight hair). Our Tiana doll had her hair up in a bun, and my daughter took it out of the bun, separated it, and released it into huge curls. We think it looks great.
