Default 16 month old wavy hair help

Here she is

Her hair is frizzy and straight but when wet its wavy/curly or when I put mouse in it. What hair type is this and how do I embrace her wavy hair? I have super straight hair so I don't know what products to use. Her hair looks like a rats nest when she wakes up from sleeping...how do I help that? I just brush her hair dry right now

I would try devacurl angel. It has a very light hold no alcohol. I assume the mouse you are using has alcohol which is going to dry out her hair.
Me: 3c, very thick
BC- May 2010
Current routine:
pre poo: avacado, banana babyfood, grapeseed oil, and silk amino acid. Cleanser: DC No Poo 1x a week and BC 1x a week. DT: GVP Cond balm and grape seed oil
Co-wash: GVP CD, TJ tea tree
Leave-in: GVP CD, TJ tea tree, and grape seed oil
Styling: HETT and castor oil
DD (8 & 6 yo): both4s (1 thick, 2 thin) keep in 2strand twists
DD (4yo): 3b (very thin, hard to grow) keep in single braids with lots of beads for protection

I would recommend not brushing it.. use a wide tooth comb only when wet instead. My 17 month old has hair like this and I am still trying to figure out what to put in it to keep the curls nice once dry. I hope you get some good feedback
2c hair... high porosity

Co-Wash- Vo5 Moisture milks
Conditioner- Tresseme Naturals
Products: LALooks Sport mixed with distilled water to form spray gel

DD1- 3a/3b hair
DD2- 2b?? we shall see as it grows!!

I agree with becky. Around this age is when I started using kinky curly knot today and curling custard on my oldest daughter (she's 4 now). Try the swap board to see if you can get a sample before you take the plunge and buy full size products that may not work.

Blame it on the cell phone...
