I have 2 Vietnamese 8 year old girls. When they were little they both had smooth silky hair but as they got older one daughter's hair became coarse and when she wakes up in the mornings it looks like she has been spinning around on the top of her head all night.

They were taking indoor swimming lessons and I thought chlorine was the culprit so I bought some special swimmers shampoo. That helped a bit but mostly with the smell. It has been over a year since indoor swimming and I even got her hair cut rather short pixie cut but it still sticks up all over the place in the mornings and it isn't bright and shiny. The whole texture, color and manageability of her hair is different. She is healthy and eats a variety of healthy foods.

What can I try?

Try deep conditioning her hair once a week. Do not wash her hair every day. Maybe every two to three days unless it is dandruffy or something. If you are putting lots of heat in her hair, don't or reduce it. My hair is naturally coarse and dry, so after washing and towel blotting my hair, I put in "It's a 10" leave in conditioner and then Paul Mitchells hair gloss serum. I either let it air dry or blow dry depending on my mood.

If here head has been like this after her pixie cut, it may just be her real hair and her body switched hair types as she became older. Pixie cuts tend to stick up, I know mine did when I had one. I don't know about the shiny hair in the morning. I wouldn't expect hair to be bright then, but then again I'm not asian so I don't know. :S In the morning, you can try a light gloss or daily hair cream.

Entering puberty can change the texture of hair. It changed mine for a couple years. I would just get them a check up and make sure they are healthy. Get them some silk pillowcases because its easier on the hair than anything else. I would look into the biosilk line of care products:
