Pre-poos like coconut oil were a fantastic help to me at the beginning.
Shampoos without sulfates are a must (or if you're really up for it - co-washing).
Deep condition your hair once a week.
Try to stay away from combs and brushes. Just stick to finger-detangling. If you must comb, only do it when you have lots of conditioner in your hair.
Stay away from heat!
Try protective hairstyles like braids or twist outs.
And most importantly: patience. You're going to have to re-learn a lot about your hair so just relax, go with the flow and enjoy the journey. The end result with be so worth it!
