Need help w/3 year old daughters hair

Jacclyn22Jacclyn22 Posts: 2Registered Users
I need some help and some advice on how to care for my 3 year old biracial daughters hair. She has type 3c hair and I've bought so many products that have not worked (Aussie deep conditioner trtmnt, taliah wahlid comb out, Pantene, herbal essence, just for me, and its a 10. To name a few.) It seemed like they all made her hair even more dry. She screams and cries every time I try to comb her hair. She has so many tangles and matted clumps. I make sure her hair is completely wet and soaked in conditioner but it doesn't seem to help. If anyone could recommend a product that will moisturize and help detangle her hair and how to comb it w/out her crying.(I know how to hold it so im not tugging on the root). Also, tips on how to keep it from getting matted during the night ( she does have a silk pillowcase.)

    My boys have pencil size curls and I use natures baby organics shampoo and conditioner/detangler on them . I would suggest maybe braiding her hair at night and maybe trying a silk bonnet over that.

    Is your daughter's hair strand size fine or medium? Do you comb her hair while the conditioner is still in the hair? I'd leave a little in, add a little bit of gel and then braid the hair to dry. Not sure if you've used Tresseme Naturals moisturizing conditioner or Shea Moisture coconut hibiscus conditioner.
    3b/c, medium-coarse, low porosity, high density
    HG: Jessicurl Too Shea and Kinky Curly Curling Custard
    Shampoo: nonsulfate shampoo and Suave Naturals sulfate shampoo when needed
