During the dry season, I like to keep my hair in protective styles. This helps keep my hair moisturized. Keeping the mane moisturized reduces breakage and for me, no breakage= healthy mane. When I wear out my fro, I part it, spray with a mix of olive oil and water, comb with a wide tooth comb, seal my ends with Shea butter, braid and tie with a satin scarf before bed. This method allows my hair get deep conditioned leaving it soft and easy to style. After taking down the braids and fluffing I am left with a not so defined curly fro like below.
