My son has a similar type of hair as your daughter. He wore it long for a long time and I just got tired of the messy hair and cut it all of. Then I became a natural and I learned a lot about curly hair products. I bought and use a lot of products on his hair and the only thing that works for his curls is Soft & Beautiful Botanicals Sculpting Foam. I wet his hair in the morning and just put a few pumps on my hand and smooth his wet hair with it. When he returns home 8 hours later, his hair looks still nice. We live in the Caribbean where is hot and humid and he sweats a lot and this product has work like a miracle on his hair. I've tried so many products and this is the only thing I would recommend.
