Need Help with my 10 year old 3c-4b Hair!!

I'm new to this forum and need help. I am a 2b-3a but my daughter's hair is curly but sooo different from mine she's a 3c-4a/b I think. How can I make her healthy, shiny and not dry? How do I straighten her hair? How do I keep her hair straight after blowdrying it (it tends to look dry and frizzes up after a short time).
When I leave her curls out her curls shrink what products should I use to prevent this? I've tried kinky curly and I like it but her hair shrinks and takes long to dry and after 2 days her hair looks dry. are there any products I can use with kinky curly custard to entend her style?
Should deep condition her hair every week or on a monthly basis?
How can I make her healthy, shiny and not dry? giving her hair moisture moisture and more moisture. a good conditioner, leave in, and dt are very important. what products are you using? how often do you shampoo her hair?
How do I straighten her hair? straightening her hair might be causing it to be dry and not as healthy as it could be (heat damage). whenever you straighten be sure to use some sort of heat protectant. i use a ceramic flat iron and have pics in my fall or winter album of how i straighten my hair.
How do I keep her hair straight after blowdrying it (it tends to look dry and frizzes up after a short time). keeping it wrapped up at night and staying away from moisture. if the humidity index is over 50%, my hair is guaranteed to revert back to curly. but once again, since you said her hair looks dry, i really think you should lay off the straightening.
When I leave her curls out her curls shrink what products should I use to prevent this? shrinkage comes with the territory. especially with 3c/4a hair. using heavy gels (fantasia ic gel w/ sparkelites is my favorite) or doing sets like twist outs, braid outs, or bantu knot outs will prevent some shrinkage. I've tried kinky curly and I like it but her hair shrinks and takes long to dry and after 2 days her hair looks dry. are there any products I can use with kinky curly custard to entend her style? leaving some kind of conditioner or other moisturizer on her hair and then applying the KCCC will help with the dryness. also, moisturizing her hair daily is a must. on my 2nd or third day hair i either use an oil or shea butter so that my hair doesnt get dry. sleeping with a satin piloowcase or bonnet would help as well.
Should deep condition her hair every week or on a monthly basis? at this point, it sounds like she could benefit alot from weekly deep treatments.
[B]what products are you using? how often do you shampoo her hair?
Right now I use carol's daughter shampoo/conditioner or kinky curly knot today/custard with a clarifying shampoo.
[B]How do I straighten her hair?
I only straighten her hair every other month or two cause she hates it, I first wash, then condition, then i deep condition 10 minutes under a dryer, rinse then put in a leave in condtioner, blow dry, then flat iron but it doesnt come out sooo well not shiny and dry at the ends also within a few hours it starts to frizz.

Can these products be used with the KCCC, I once tried to use miss jessie buttercreme on day 2 of putting KCCC and it didn't mix well my daughter looked like she had dandruff in her hair.
What's a good product to deep condition with? How should i be doing it?
What are good products period?

I was so impressed that I ran out and bought the CD Healthy Hair Butter which is very moisturizing and I'm waiting for the Tui shampoo, hair smoothie and oil to come by mail. Can't wait to see how their other products work since I'm so impressed with the leave-in conditioner. My daughter's hair was getting dry too and the biggest problem was the detangling issue when I washed and attempted to comb through her hair. We also tried KCCC and Knot Today and they were drying her hair out. Miss Jessie's didn't do anything for her hair either. Good luck.
