Remember that your little girls tresses are still developing, and are very sensitive to excessive heat when continuously styling black little girls hair styles that require heat.
Since the whole idea of straightening is not only to flatten and smooth the hair but it is also for lengthening, I've found that the "Banding" method works like magic for little girls. This is also known to some as "African Hair Threading" and its amazing. Adults who are Un-relaxed can apply this method as well.

Accumulation of Dirt and Lint
As black women we know from birth that our hair is very thirsty and dehydrated in its natural state therefore, little girls who are un-relaxed, will have the most dehydrated hair ever, and using a shampoo with sulfates in it is the biggest mistake.The drier the hair is I've found that it collects more Lint than ever, and the best way to remedy that is to avoid shampoos with sulfates in it, or make your own.
As for cleansing the scalp to clarify it, you can do a mix of half part Vinegar and half water for the scalp only, but it is essential that you condition and moisturize the strands of her hair.
The Apple cider vinegar mixed with water works wonders for an itchy dry scalp. It will unclogs her pores and accelerate hair growth.
Get a small spray bottle and mix half glycerin and half water. Glycerin is an All natural vegetable based moisturizer it is one of the most common ingredients in any hair conditioner or facial moisturizer you have in your cabinet now, just without all the other nasty chemicals to preserve it.
The NOW brand Vegetable Glycerin works well.
Tip: I found that using more water than glycerin works better for maintaining black little girls hair styles.
You just have to find what works for you and not have her hair too greasy, because everyone's hair type is different. But if her hair is in the 4's such as 4a,4b,4c it is probably really thirsty, more often than not.
