Hi. What's SSKs? It sounds like we may have the same issue, rather concern. My daughter is also 3, and moisture retention plus frizziness are my concerns. I literally just finished undoing a braided hairstyle I had it in to wash & redo... When I unbraided, I just used a slight spritz of plain water. I noticed each braid was soft! What I did when I styled it was Organix moroccan argan oil & shea moisture's shea butter curl enhancing smoothie. It does nothing for her curls actually so I use dabs of it like grease or hair creme. During the week I'll moisturize the braids & scalp w/ bonner bro's oil moisturizing lotion & spritz w/ olive oil. Today I got a coconut oil hair grease instead of coconut milk like I was thinking & 100% pure castor (not in that ethnic of an area, so no jamaican castor here) and will try it to see if this combo addresses dryness & frizzies 🙏. I'll let you know... Now off to style since the conditioning portions done.
