Have there been any updates? OP thank you for being brave enough to admit that you need help and that you want to help your little girl look her best. I agree with what some of the other posters have said but not with the tone in which it was said. some posters are coming off harsh and judgemental IMHO. Generally naturallycurly and the online natural hair care world are very understanding and welcoming. Inaddition to the sites that were given, i would try happygirlhair, newlynatural.com, curlynikki.com and youtube. You'd be surprised at what you can learn on youtube. I wish you and your daughter well and that you both learn a lot in this process.
