I have two biracial little girls. I use a little Carol's Daughter to tame the frizzies. No, the stuff isn't cheap, but it lasts quite a while. I usually apply it to wet hair hair and detangle from the ends to the roots with a wide-tooth comb on Sundays, which is hair washing day around here. During the week, I use a tad every other day or so to keep the frizzies in check. HTH.
