Model: Tammy Ford from Metropolitan Models. Although Tammy's hair requires low maintenance — water, conditioner and gel do the trick — Ottley contends that a client such as this would still require monthly salon visits for "scalp stimulation, trims and deep treatments." Here, the cornrows are removed to produce a full Afro whose ends are defined with a small amount of pomade. (top)

According to Ottley, natural hair can be managed easily when approached in this manner: "First work in a creme or other leave-in conditioner to soften hair, then hold the base tightly and begin to comb hair out at the ends, working your way down to the base."
