My daughter's curls are GONE!!!

Can somenone explain to me why her hair has changed???? It use to be beautiful caramel hair that had ringlets like Shirley Temple, and now it hust has some body towards the ends, but it does kink up around her face. I tried doing co-washes, use cond. and sham. that are cone free, i just can't explain what happened to her hair, and will her beautiful curls come back, we even do plopping! Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
When you did the co-wash did you do a final sulfate wash? This is explained on Laura lees blog >> http://dormroomcurly.blogspot.com/20...ons-table.html >> scroll down on the main page to "HOW to start"

Next question: how old is she?

I lovely ringlety curls as a young child, but it went to board straight (and super shiny) as I hit about 7 or so. it stayed that way until puberty at about 12-13 and then it went NUTS with the curls again.

*shrug* sometimes, it just does weird things I guess lol. Just because they might be gone now though doesn't mean they'll stay gone :P

On baby/toddler pictures I have full on ringlets, then from the beginning of school age until 7th grade I had shiny blonde hair that could be brushed and looked great, just wavy (it was a hell to get the brush through the knots, but no frizz at all once it was done). And then you have 8th grade... large ball of frizz, gold turned to a dull, ugly light brown/dark blonde, just terrible. Only now have I learned how to make it look any good. Hair changes over time, and while I doubt you can "get her hair back," you'll probably have to change your method of working with it. Good luck
3a in Paris
I use:
Garnier Ultra Doux conditioners
High in glycerin conditioners
As much gel as possible
Testing out flax seed gel
Plopping, for around 30 minutes
Pixiecurl drying
Pineappling

The exact same thing has happened with my daughter's hair. She has gone from 3b hair to maybe 2b after a self inficted haircut a little over a year ago. Plus it seems with each cut she loses curl. I am just now starting the no cone method, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. She still gets frizzies in the back with waves.
Well, I'm not a mom, but I definitely have quite a story about how my hair has changed.

When I was a baby, I had short 3a curls. When I was 3, I had very long, thick, medium-textured 2b waves up to my butt. But, when I turned 7, I had very thick tight 3b/3c curls, but when I turned 12 is when they really started to become a problem because my hair was so dry, coarse, poofy, and rough. When I turned 13, I went CG and I had the same tight 3b ringlets, but still very thick and dense. Now I'm 14 and a half, and I have fine, 2c waves with medium density. It's really crazy how hair can change so much over a few years!

I agree with the others, hair texture often changes as kids mature. Mine sure did, and my daughter's hair is changing now. You daughter's hair might become curly again, or it might not. If her texture has changed, there isn't much you can do.

It sounds like you love her curls (who wouldn't?) but if her texture has changed for now, you may want to be cautious about working hard to try to get those curls back. It could be frustrating for you both and I'm sure you want her to feel good about herself no matter what her hair texture is.

Now might be a great time to try some unique hairstyles. That might help you both adjust. Bantu knots are a fun, easy style that work in almost any hair. Braids and ponytails with zigzag parts are other fun styles you can try. If you want hairstyle ideas, let me know and I'll point you in the direction of some great hair blogs.
Happy Girl Hair
