Default Younger sister hair help!

my younger sister is 13 she has been natural for a little while now so she is still in the transitioning stage. when we were younger my mom relaxed her hair which ruined the curl in her hair. the back portion of her hair slightly curls when wet the rest of her hair does not but when it dries the curl is gone. if anyone has any tips on hair care, how to get her curl back(dont really think big chop is an option),protective styles,etc. it would be appreciated!i bought shea butter does anyone have any good treatments or leave ins associated with it?
A lil info: she goes to a dominican hair salon almost every 2 weeks, most of the time sulfate free shampoo is used, if not olive oil shampoo is used HELPPPP please as i am also learning how to take care of my hair.

Is your sister getting blow outs at the salon? Is so the reason her hair won't curl is likely heat damage. And that much heat that often more than likely there in no getting that curl back unless she transitions. Step 1 of my advice would be no more direct heat ie blowdryers, flat irons or pressing combs.
Dc at least once a week. You will need to figure out if her hair likes protein or not. Use transitioning hair styles like twists, rollersets. Ect. If she doesnt want to bc it is going to be a long process to get the curls back but worth it.
