Need advice for 2a 4 year old

MasamiMasami Registered Users Posts: 1
My daughter has fine 2a hair and I have thick 3b hair and I'm not sure how to care for her hair. When I use my products it weighs down her hair and make it look greasy, but without any product it frizzes. I'm looking for recommendations for shampoo, conditioner, and some kind of leave in. Any other hair care advice for a 2a kid would be great too.

    Fairy Tales is a great brand and works pretty well for me :) It's actually made for kids, natural, and can be found at Ulta.

    shampoo- Fairy Tales Super-Charge Detangling Shampoo
    Super-Charge Detangling Shampoo 12 oz
    or Fairy Tales Curly-Q Shampoo
    Curly-Q Shampoo 12oz.

    conditioner- Fairy Tales Detangling Conditioner
    Detangling Conditioner 12oz

    leave-in- Fairy Tales Energizing Leave-In Conditioner
    Energizing Leave-in Conditioner 12oz
    *I use this as my cowash, conditioner, and leave-in and it's awesome!*

    gel- Fairy Tales Curly-Q Natural Curl Maker Gel
    Curly-Q Natural Curl Maker Gel 8oz
    *I've used this before too. It didn't have quite enough hold for me, but I have thick hair, and this would probably be perfect for a 4-year-old.*

    Another good brand that can be found at Ulta is Circle of Friends Circle of Friends ® | Kids Shampoo, Hair Care, Bath & Body Products | Official WebStore.

    Also, the Kids Only! line by Jason Naturals is supposed to look really well.

    I would let her hair air dry and never brush it except for combing it in the shower.

    Good luck!

    My DD has 2c hair also and I have 3b hair. I use Trader Joe's Nourish on her (it's also what I use) and also use California Babies for washing. I sometimes put a teeny tiny bit of coconut oil on her or jojoba oil but generally I just leave a little of the conditioner in and don't rinse it all the way out. Her hair isn't greasy and I only wash it once a week. Something like V05 might work. It works well for my DD and it's not really heavy. We also like KCKT leave-in.
    3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.
