Very curly can matt and tangle easily and the instinct is to keep brushing probably more often than necessary,
At 3yrs it is a good idea to include you little one when you are brushing her hair, the best brush for this is the Tangle teezer, always start from the ends moving up the shaft of hair.. Maybe having a time once a week to teach her how to brush out her hair doing your own can demonstrate this.
If you use a pareben sulphate free shampoo and conditioner you get much better conditioned hair.
Keeping hair plaited for sleeping helps and or slippy pillow helps (satin really soft cotton )
A detangler is essential and you can mix conditioner with water in a spray to duplicate the same affect 1part conditioner 2 parts water.
A childs hair changes throughout childhood so adult products are a no no products such as Little sprout, Miniu, etc are formulated for children and are ideal.
As for routine keep it to every morning and evening for brushing , this will create a habit for your girls. Washing should be no more than twice a week , you can use the detangler daily.
Use soft bands not skinny ones as the hair can get caught in these and be very painful to remove.
Find a good hair salon, ask for referrals etc.,
Hope this helps Marion .
