My 3.5 yo has bangs that frizz up (plus, her hair is very thin), especially when the humidity hits it (which is quite frequently where we live). Would you put a product in her hair at this age? her bangs just seem to get outta control and start to look like a mad scientist hairdo by the middle of the day. If you'd put something in her hair, do you have any recommendations??

A leave in conditioner. Maybe some Moroccan oil. I have curly hair, this is what I'd do for myself.

California baby conditioner works for us. We use it like a leave in conditioner.

Olive oil. It's great for preventing tangles too.

It'll only look greasy if you pour it on. Put a couple of drops in your palm, rub your hands together, and start at the ends of the hair. I use coconut oil every so often when my hair freaks out.

I've used a bar conditioner (mostly cocoa butter or coconut oil could work out too) myself when dealing with the same issue and it worked out great - I'd wash and use conditioner and then rub in into just my bangs, and only partly rinse out. I'd feel fine using either of those on a kid.

As a previous poster said, only if you use too much. We're talking a very small drop rubbed into your hands first and then on the hair. It works great, and it is very healthy for hair. I have very fine, thin hair that frizzes too.

Oh, I forgot- Jojoba oil is good too. It has no smell and the tiniest amount helps weigh down some types of frizz. To me its not a greasy oil.
