Help for Daughter who has 3b and 3c and some 4a hair

My daughter's hair was nice and soft and as she grew it has changed at different parts of her head. The hair at the front is more 3b and the back it a mixture of 3c and 4 a. At the back especially the ends are so britle and even when it's trimmed it still feels brittle. How do I deal with it? She is going to turn 10 and likes to have her hair out. The challenge is unless its flat ironed ( and even then is can still get quite knotty) it gets poofy and knotty and looks wild.
I tried the Curls line but I didn't see where it sotens the hair. By the time she comes home from school it looks dry and when she sleeps and wakes up it stiff and dry and I have add more products which means I'd be buying so much product it would too expensive.

I use the Conair hair drier with the cermaic slots to dry it most times which straightens it a bit and I use the Dark and Lovely Naturally -Almond Rain oil mist to give sheen. I part it in 4 at night and pin curl and let her sleep with a satin cap. Even so now is seem so dry. I even condition wash as well. I've started using the Aussie line. Now I'm conidering the Liquid Keratin but not sure if it really for biracial hair and is she too young to be using such products?

    Hi sammibammy,
    My daughter also has curly hair and its so hard to know what to do!, I would advice to try really natural products like Kinky curly or Karens Body Beautiful, if you could post some photos of her hair it would really help, I know other curlys on this site will have some really good advice for you, good luck :toothy8:

    Hi mumofcurl,

    My pic is actually my daughter Amanda.That was about 2 years ago.
    I guess I could take some pics. Thanks for the advice! I'll look at those products.

    But someone on another board here posted a link to this site:

    The owner has a mix of hair textures that sounds similar to your DD's. Her hair is very very long and she wears it out all the time, and you can see from her detailed pics that it's moisturized and healthy all the way to the ends. She goes into great detail about technique and particular brands of conditioners she recommends (mostly cheap and readily available). She also separates out the curls when they're wet so each curl holds its shape--and that really caught my eye as something that might work to have the curl protect itself and not poof out or get dry at the ends.

    Anyway, I want to try this on my DD's hair soon, and when I read your post I thought it might work for your DD.
