To start using styling products in my baby?

I feel a bit weird about it tbh but she has this huge fuzzy frizz at the back that I brush several tunes a day to stop dreads forming.
Her hair is just so light and fluffy its like she's got a crazy cloud on her head!
She's 16 mo she just seems way to young for styling products!
So make me feel better, would you? Have you? And what?!?

I don't think cutting would help as its not really long enough unless I shaved it! it's not even long enough to tie up.
I do use conditioner when washing it but there has only been minor improvement.
Coconut oil? How just smear oil in her hair?
I used to have a leave in spray on conditioner that I used on myself years ago and I have thought about getting a tiny spray of conditioner as watering it down in a spray bottle?

My DS has had loads of hair since he was tiny. I do occasionally use conditioner and I can see the temptation to start fingering some frizz-ease or similar through it. I'd be a bit pfb nervous about the contents of adult products on tiny-person skin but worth having a look in the baby aisle: if its de-drizzling I'd second a drop of simple veg-type oil (olive, almond, coconut if there are no allergy worries).

Conditioner, fine comb, every bath time. Get her used to this as routine and you will never have issues with nits. Honest.And it will help tame her hair.
I thought this was going to be about highlights and straighteners. :)
FWIW my baby girl is having a full head of highlights this week for her birthday. But she is 15 :)

You just rub a bit of oil between your palms and gently rub it in as if you are conditioning your own hair. I use light olive or sunflower oil.
I shaved both of my dcs when they were 5 months old. It sorted out the frizz & the bald patches and grew back thicker.

I use Original Sprout curl calmer on DS and it stops his vast quantities of hair from getting matted and sticking up. It's like a styling cream but made for kids and without any nasty things like parabens. It's a bit expensive but a tube lasts ages. It also smells lovely, so DS gets his head sniffed a lot (only by me, I hasten to add, I don't let random strangers sniff my child!)

sorry, I was assuming products to be used from wet. DD and I both have wild curls with a tendency towards frizz. I rub a little bit of moisturiser through the ends of hers post bath and keep a water spray to hand for other times. I rarely brush it while dry, because it just makes it bigger.

my ds has a head of lovely curls. I have used spray conditioner on his hair sine he was about a year old. its a big fuzz ball if I don't!
I used to use the johnsons one but asda do a little angels one that I much prefer. it smells nicer and is a lot cheaper as I gi through bottles of the stuff!
