There is a post in the multicultural families about this. It may be a few pages back now though.

Anyway, I don't have curly hair and my kids don't either, but I used to help my friend's daughter with her hair since she had no clue what to do with it. The method mentioned in that thread (I think its curly girl?) is basically what I showed her how to do. Rarely, if ever, shampoo. Use LOTS of conditioner. Use a stay in conditioner. Only brush it every once in awhile, while wet with lots of conditioner in it, and then make sure to create ringlets again. Keep her hair braided at night or up in a bun. Maybe braiding it during the day would help too?

Its entirely possible that if she doesn't have to endure brushing, tangles, frizzy hair, anything like that, that her whole attitude will change. If not, theres always the flat iron.
