I suggest you continue with caring for hair although it looks like it needs lots of moisturizing soi think you should try weekly deep treatments ive heard curl junkie makes a good one. You may also want to try using a leave in like kinky curly knot today( I've heard lots of good things about it) or any other kind. Have you tried sealing your hair with oil like olive or jojoba or coconut( which penetrates the hair shaft). Oil helps keep moisture in so it's a great sealer. Good luck
