I simply pull my hair back. If there are any big lumps sticking out, I gently rake it back with my fingertips. I tend to like the looser lumpy look on me though. I don't do slicked back.

3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.
