There's a book called "It's All Good Hair" by Michelle N K Collison that I found really helpful at that age. It has detailed instructions on how to do different braid and twist styles. It's well worth getting good at those now her hair is short. Most likely you will want to keep her hair in braids or twists as it grows, as it will be less likely to tangle and break. DD loved to flip through it and pick out styles to try. Then I would sit her in front of a favorite movie or tv show and go to work.
