My sister is a 4b of around armpit length (and she's 5'9", so no small feat lol), who does regular wash and goes during the summer. It does look like an Afro. She loves it. I think she's definitely low maintenance, doesn't fret over every single strand knot she gets, or do complex regimens, but she doesn't have tangled or matted hair. Not positive what she does, but I think she finger detangles every time she washes or conditions? I think every day or every two to three days. Maybe I'll ask her, if you are interested.
edit: I just remembered that I did wng's too last winter. I cowashed every day or every other day and finger detangled in the shower. Didn't have issues with tangling but stopped because the conditioner was irritating my scalp. I am also a 4b.
