PLEASE HAVE YOUR DAUGHTER TO REVIEW THIS POST AND THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS
I am an ex hairstylist. Unfortunately, hairstylists do NOT help Black American women to either grow healthy hair or long hair. They only try to 1)Cut your hair off and charge for chemical treatments and weaves that "jack your hair up". They do not educate women on how to care for their hair and typically you hair will get more jacked up over the years going to stylists especially if you never learn to care for your own hair.
I suggest you have your daughter to join the hairlista.com website or to study the hair growth or newbie hair growth section of this site. There is a wealth of information on both sites to teach her what things are good for African American hair and how to start a journey of being responsible for your OWN hair on a daily basis. The stylist is not going home with you, generally only know about styling hair. They are not trained well in at home maintenance (you can learn more about that online than from salons), and they usually cut off way too much hair.
I do recommend you get her some basics for self care.
1)Hello Hydration Conditioner
Learn how to use it INSTEAD of a shampoo (This is called CONDITIONER ONLY Washing or CO Washing. This is like DIY Wen cleansing product)
Learning to do this is VITAL for AA hair as regular shampoos strip all the few natural oils we have, dry it out and make it break off like your daughter's is doing
2) ApHogee two minute conditioner
This is a mild protein conditioner and will help with breakage.
3) Some conditioner caps (look like shower caps) you may sleep w/ these on when your hair is suffering from dryness.
4) Satin bonnets or satin scarves. Cover the hair with these at night to protect the hair from harsh drying cotton fibers which wick out moisture and cause dryness and breakage
5) Sulphur oil to apply to scalp at night to promote growth.
6) A moisture leave in to moisturize the hairs at night
I THINK THE MIXTURE IN THE VIDEO BELOW WOULD WORK BEST FOR YOUR DAUGHTER'S HAIR TYPE, especially if you get the Hello Hydration Conditioner for a CO Wash cleanser. You can just use the same thing with some VEGETABLE GLYCERINE, water and oil to moisturize and seal your daughter's hair daily. SO THIS VIDEO BELOW IS FOR HER DAILY MOISTURE.
A good daily moisture spray mist could include: water, Vegetable glycerine, and a natural oil (possibly aloe vera juice). Maybe rosemary and/or peppermint essential oils which are good for hair growth.
7)Natural oils like Extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil to apply to hair daily before bed. Use this to seal in the moisture each night.
8) Maxi Hair Vitamins
There are a lot of helpful hairlistas with youtube channels like the ones above. have your daughter to subscribe to some of these ladies who have hair like hers and LEARN. But unfortunately hairstylists do not help to grow hair. They just will cut it off and send you home clueless. This from an ex stylist and ex beauty school teacher.
