Coconut oil will penetrate the hair shaft and increase elasticity, so anyone with broken hairs can benefit. Be careful not to put your hair up and break more hair. Moisturize thoroughly and I agree that targeted gel application with a strong hold gel should help. You could also find a liquidy gel or add water to your gel to graze over the canopy while your hair is dry. Water+conditioner can also help during the day.
