I can totally relate to the squished curls look. Although I can say I wouldn't have known had you not pointed it out. My daughter get's this. We add more conditioner and/or curl creme (CJCCCC
) to her hair after spritzing a bit with water. Unfortunately there isn't too much else we can do to make it better..or we haven't found a way. I can't get 2nd day hair with mine either. No way. !
