My daughter has 3b & 3c hair - her curls are like corkscrews, very bouncy and get tangled very easily. The best method I have found is to make sure I section her hair prior to washing, then afterwards, I use a really slippery conditioner with LOTS of water. Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave In works really well for her hair. Since she has so much hair, I sometimes go the cheaper route and use Tresemme Naturals conditioner - sometimes I leave that in, sometimes I rinse it out, it just depends on how tangled her hair is that day and how hard it is to comb through. I haven't noticed too much build up when leaving it in. Hope that helps!
