I think any hair is hard to maintain if you dont know how to work with it

My friends daughter is a 3b and he kept cutting it because he didnt know how to deal with it, took me 15 minutes to detangle her hair. He thought I was a miracle worker.

Not so, you cant approach anyones hair thinking that its going to be a piece of cake because its looser or tighter.

Im a 4a/b and have no issues with my hair, NOW! Time and patience is the best tool anyone could have.

I had similar issues with my tightest pattern too, the hair there was broken, it was visibly my rough patch. You just have to learn to pay it more attention. I now always separate this section and baby it more than the rest, I cut the perm off of it (I'm transitioning) so that it won't deal with 2 textures. Just cater to it and be extra patient with hair that is more high maintenance than the rest.
