11 month old with frizz, help!

We have been waiting for my daughter to finally get some hair, but now that it is here, I am finding it to be crazy frizzy and hard to manage. The products I have tried are not really working anymore- we have used Earth Mama Angel Baby wash and California Baby detangling spray. This was fine before she got any hair, of course, but now she has frizzy clumps all over her head. I know this is just going to get harder to manage as her hair keeps growing unless I start with the product modification now.

She is caucasian, her hair is very fine and very frizzy. My hair is maybe 3A or so, I follow modified CG and have a lot of product around that I can experiment with. I put some of my Jessicurl Aloeba conditioner in after washing her hair last night, which is fine, but now I am thinking I should stop shampooing her hair.

So, anyone have a child with similar hair who can give me some product recommendations? I know there have been similar questions posted before, but not for a long time, so I was wondering about newer products. I have some Little Sprout mousse on the way I threw in with my last curlmart order, but I think that is discontinued as it is no longer on the Litte Sprout web site. Also, I don't want to use anything with parabens on her hair. Hope this makes sense, sorry so long and disjointed.
It seems a little silly to me to product and style an 11 month olds hair. At that age my girls hair have always been a mess. They tend to be all over the place when they sleep which gives them this permanent rats nest on the back of their head. There's always some type of oatmeal, bananas, toothpast, yogurt goo in their hair.


My 2 year old has my 2c/3a, easily combed out, straightend hair. If I use the right shampoo, and it's the right weather, and I scrunch dry instead of comb - she will have the cutest little curls all around her head.
.............and then she'll rub chapstick in it, or her sister will dump a bunch of sand on her head.

Not worth it to me.
Totally agree, her hair is full of food all the time, and in the morning it is a disaster because she has slept all over the place. I don't want to style it, but I would like her to look presentable to the world. When you say the right shampoo, what have you found that to be?

Cowashing works okay, as long as I'm not using too thick of a conditioner, but sometimes she really needs a shampoo.

Cynthia Sylvia shampoo by LUSH works great for her, but it's expensive. I've only used it on her b/c my husband has it.

I don't bother with product because I can't stand the producty feel on hair lately.
frizz is/was my daughters biggest issue. without seeing pics, it sounds like they have similar hair. she has very fine 3a "caucasian" hair. i do a modified CG on her as well.
i use a LUSH shampoo bar (seanick) once a week on her hair and then use california baby calming conditioner as a regular conditioner/co wash and as a leave in. i do use a styler on her hair and that has actually made the biggest difference in the lack of frizz. my favorite is curl keeper. it makes her hair super shiny and reduces the frizz soo much. plus it doesnt look like or feel like ive used a styling product in her hair. another one that has worked well for her is kinky curly curling custard. after i have put in her leave in and combed it through, i put on the curl keeper (or KCCC, but i prefer curl keeper) and rake it through w/ my fingers to get her curls to form and clump better. the good thing about the curl keeper is that it can be "reactivated" the next day, so i just spritz her w/ detangler, comb, and shes back to looking like a non crazy person. the other things that have helped her hair is sleeping on a satin blanket or a satin-y pillow and i drape a silk scarf over the back of her carseat so her hair doesnt frizz and mat up. those 2 tips helped me just as much, if not more than the products i use.
With my 3a hair, I find it works better if I co wash with a less intense conditioner. If I'm shampooing I need a heavier conditioner to replace the moisture.

I cowashed Bellas hair with Flex conditioner last night.
