She also needs to get a good cut... I didn't get a "good" cut until I was 18 or 19, and believe me, my self esteem would've been a lot better had I gotten one years before! Also, coconut oil, I use extra virgin coconut oil and just rub some into my scalp and hair the night before and sleep with it on. I wash it the next morning and it has done WONDERS to my hair. I don't use a ton (made that mistake the first time!!) or you'll have to wash your hair numerous times and it'll be super greasy. GL!

I've thought about this before...what actually qualifies as a "good cut"? Is there a cut that is best for curly hair (thought she straightens it every day, which I'm sure is contributing to the mess). Or a cut that is best for texture?
