I've seen a lot of good hair care ideas here, and since I'm at a loss as to where to post this question I'm taking the leap into this area!
My daughter has fine, somewhat curly/wavy hair. I have straight hair that never needs brushing. Hers needs brushing constantly, and still it pulls out. I'm looking for an oil or a leave in conditioner that I can use before I brush her hair to minimize the pulling and the time it takes to brush.
Any thoughts? Natural if possible, of course!

I like coconut oil. You can find scented coconut oil at an Indian store, unscented with the oils in the food section of WalMart. I rub a small amount between my hands and rub it into the hair just after washing. I then blow-dry the hair, at least partially, so the oil absorbs. This makes the hair soft and easy to handle without leaving a greasy look.
A friend of mine who has very lush extremely curly hair swears by a scalp massage with olive oil followed by brushing the a natural bristle brush. Why not try it? You likely have olive oil in the house, won't cost you but a 1/2 tablespoon...
