Thank you BekkaPoo!!! Well she has to condition it everyday just about. So in the morning she conditions with DevaCare One Conditioner and a lot of the time I'll have her leave it in. She combs it out in the shower with a wide tooth comb. Then when she gets out she wraps it in a tshirt, then I'll run through some olive oil cream and depending on how dry her hair is feeling some Kinky Kurly Knot Today. Then it goes up in the ponytail braid. I hate that she won't wear it down. When she does on weekends, after the shower I'll section her hair (oh i always do it in sections) use the KKKT and DevaCurl Angel Gel. At least once a week I'll do a deep conditioning treatment and apply a little heat, leave it in for 30 and rinse. Sometimes I'll have her leave it in and rinse it in the morning.
