Baby Corner: Babydoll's hair

Babydoll's hair is slowly starting to grow and getting very dry. I haven't completely figured out how to get a hang of it either. I'm really paranoid, so I didn't want to experiment on her at such an early age and use all sorts of products so I tried a few natural items to begin with. I tried water mixed with some conditioner, coconut oil, shea butter and even some Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer ...nothing really workerd. The best result I got was from the shea butter but then within a few minutes it would become dry again. The back of her head is the driest even though I try my best to keep her off laying down on it. She even sleeps on her tummy but I guess its just unavoidable. The only shampoo I use on her is a body wash/shampoo that is a Walmart brand and I'm pretty sure I need to change that. So, here is where I need your help. What products should I use on her hair? Or what has worked fo/r you? I'm looking for a good shampoo (she is only almost 6m) and good moisturizer. Comment below..anything helps!

Sorry that the pics are crappy..camera phone and active little baby.

Here is her hair dry without any product. Notice she has two different curl patterns. The hair near her neck seem to be loose and bigger curls kind of resulting in a tail lol


Here is her hair with product..I can't remember if it was coconut oil or shea butter that used when I snapped this pic.

I would use the same things, just less. Try switching the shampoo & condiioner to natural brands and then add the bee mine and coconut oils. And shea if it's still dry. You might get better results by switching the drying shampoo to a moisturizing one.
