Curly hair is naturally dry hair and all the remedies of curly hair focus on keeping it moisturized. Use homemade hair masks, deep conditioner in market,  oils like coconut oil (cold pressed ones are the best) and conditioners to replenish your hair with moisture. Moisture prevents your hair becoming frizzy and makes it softer and less prone to breakage.  Long story short, moisturized hair is healthy and happy hair. As long as your hair is moisturized, it will look great!
