Wow!! Thanks everyone for the different tips and methods... I wonder how many hubby will let me experiment on him!

Adthomas: hahahaha you cracked me up. Chock in milk lollll. My hubby is a mix-breed lolll but European descent. German and Dutch. Both of who are profoundly "white". We were once told that there may have been random tribes in German mountains yrs and yrs ago.... Hmmm. To answer your question, Native Aussies (aboriginals) were treated horrifically back when Australia first colonized. It is a shameful story. Since then though I believe they have been more than compensated (as much as possible). Now they get extremely generous government handouts and everything handed to them on a silver platter, and also received a national apology from our prime minister (president). It is a shame things have turned out the way they have. Unfortunately many of them are dole bludgers who have been injected with a hate for whites for what our ancestors did to them. I believe the next generation should take the opportunity to make peace between each other and to make the most of the future they have been given. Some of them are doing so and it's inspirational. Us young folk shouldn't be fighting our great great grandparents war. It's over. Keep it that way. Lolll not really a hair topic I know.

Chupie: our daughter has amazing 3c curls! Our son doesn't have much hair yet but I can see a twirl or two in there, I think he may have my hair :-)

The things the other women suggested are great and I do reccomend you try them. If his hair looks's like type 4 hair, acts like type 4 hair, then it is 4 hair and thus should be treated as 4 hair. Type 4 requires an enormous amount of moisture, if it deprived of that moisture it will feel like wool. Start a regimen that includes deep conditioners, hot oil treatments with a hooded dyer or steamer is a good idea to help the product penetrate the hair shaft. Leave ins and sealing will make a difference in moisture retention. When he's styling his 'fro in the morning a quick spritz with water or a refresher will replace moisture that was lost due to being absorbed by the pillow case and bedding when sleeping.

My brother has 4 hair and had the same problem. After doing what I suggested, his fro is much softer and even has some shine.

With that said, I'm sure you'll see a difference.

Good luck with your hubby. (:
