Liesnalibis and those who left me private messages, thanks so much!
 
I HAVE FOUND SUCCESS!!  It turns out that my baby's hair needed to be acidified.  I co-washed as normal but followed with Roux Porosity Control Corrector and Conditioner #233.  It's been a week and her hair is still EXTREMELY SOFT AND MANAGEABLE.  Her mini afro puff tips are no longer dried out and I can braid the front of her hair with ease because the ends are now holding moisture, making them manageable and responsive.  I am so happy and thank you all so much.

My 3 year old used to pull her hair out AND EAT IT but has now stopped.  To get her to stop eating the hair (was causing bowel obstruction), I had to keep cutting her hair very low in the front with clippers and scissors.
 
Now that the hair is growing out, it is hard to braid the hair because there are still uneven, low patches and the ends in the front seem brittle and 'hard', whereas the rest of her hair is soft and normal.  I've tried all kinds of conditioners and in desperation, tried to flat iron or hot comb with low heat to help my styling options.  Her hair relaxes in the front, but what is up with the ends?  They refuse to press all the way so her hair looks crazy so I usually just section it and clip barettes or gel bands to her hair in the front.
 
Why I wonder, would her hair be so resistant to heat?  The rest of her hair, even the roots in the front do straighten, but barely.  It's like her tresses don't like heat.  Even when I attempt to blow dry, which has only happened twice since birth, I can't get her hair to soften and straighten slightly.  Only when wet is it 'normal'.
 
I use shea butter and natural oils in her hair, lots and lots of conditioner.  I shampoo only every several months.  The rest of the time I co-wash.  I only shampoo my own hair when I relax it, the rest of the time I co-wash.

ooooooohhh, wishing bad things on a 3 year old.
 
Says more about your character than I'm sure you wanted to show and none of it's good.
 
Confirms everything.  You didn't mean well when you decided to answer the post and you don't mean well now.
 
Her hair is not going to fall out, I take way too good care of it and her.
 
Wish elsewhere dumbass.

That last comment was for both Lady Ice and Sugabanana.
 
Now, I'm being rude.

Lady Ice,
 
Nothing wrong with pressing a child's head.  I already keep her front in puff balls but I think that's drying her hair out, ergo pressing to ergo make it long enough to plait or braid.
 
And yes I do have answers.  Posters can do private messages in email boxes; we've been conversing through email.
 
Also, I stand corrected, you didn't ride the short bus.  I'm thinking you didn't qualify to be a passenger there.  You had to work up to it by being home schooled first.

Further, Sugabanana, my baby is not bald.  Everyone is commenting in awe at how her hair is growing like a wild fire.  It is because I take the time to treat my child's head with the utmost care.  I use only natural oils and shea butters, I do not brush, which tears hair, I detangle properly and massage her scalp.  I avoid sulfates and parabens, etc. but it doesn't stop there.
 
I choose healthy foods to feed her, and splurge on things like spelt, quinoa, evaporated cane juice, raw honey, etc.  She does not know what McDonald's is, etc.  I do everything I can as a mom to be sure she is healthy, inside and out.  That includes her hair.  She was born with a bush and the only reason we had a set back is because she was pulling it out by the roots.
 
The heat application, as stated at least twice before, was to attempt to soften and give me more styling options because I believe it being in a bush in the front is causing it to dry out.  It needs to be in a protective style to keep her from being bald.
 
The forum is supposed to be discussion to get ideas and resolutions, not a place for you to bash those seeking assistance.  I dont' need your assistance.  It's not the right kind.
