How should I deep condition 5-year-old's hair?

Just that one last question! I promise! :p

How often should I deep condition my daughter's hair? And what would you suggest is a good product/procedure for deep conditioning a little girl's hair?

Thanks. :)

I'm really really trying to get a handle on all these things while she is young so I can hand the reins to her when she is ready to care for her own hair. She loves her curls (hates the hassle, though) so I'm hoping she'll be a naturally curly girl for life.

    I deep condition my daughter's hair once a week. Her hair is very dry and thin, you can't tell because she has sooo much hair and its very long.

    I use a few Dominican products, but this one is my favorite:

    This one you can buy for around $11 on http://www.roundbrushhair.com

    I also use Cantu Shea Butter on her because it soaks up the moisture and keeps her hair soft & manageable. I don't do any protein treatments on her hair yet because she's so little. If I feel she needs it in the future I'll consider it.

    By the way, ask away and don't be shy. Your daughter is a cutie and we want her to stay a curly. Tell her she has no choice or you'll ground her :thumbdown: LMAO

    Brad Pitt was on Esquire magazine and this is his quote:

    Carol's Daughter Hair Products: For white people who might be having a little trouble with black- person hair, Carol's Daughter is a fantastic hair product. We got it for Z. Now her hair has this beautiful luster. And it smells nice, too.I thought of you since you're trying to figure out your bi-racial daughter's hair.

    I would use any good, short-acting (5-10 minutes) deep conditioner. Lustrasilk Shea Butter Cholesteral, Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment. These also will work under a heat cap if she has the patience.

    You could also do a moisturizing/oil baggy of her ends overnight (check the hair routines album in my fotki for a photo and if you search for baggy or baggying there are some posts).

    With the 2-3 times a week co-washing, oil rinsing and baggying, I haven't needed to do specific deep conditioning treatments other than a once a month protein followed by moisturizing.

    I have a 5 year old also. I usually wash her hair first, then I put conditioner in her hair (whatever one I choose for that day...lol). I let it sit while she washes and plays etc. When she's ready to get out I rinse it.
