Bad Hair Days, The Back, Job, Weather!!

Hi all! I just wrote an essay but it sounded like I was throwing a pity party so I'll just ask a few questions if that is OK.

1. How do you deal with breezes/ wind/ humidity/ drizzle without a ton of product?
2. How do you see the back of your head and still have two free hands to style?
3. How do you deal with getting (very) sweaty in your roots and needing to look presentable right after?
4. How do you get through the learning curve without washing your hair constantly?
5. How do you get mega tangles caused by product out without brushing?
6. Are there any easy and neat up-dos for shoulder length hair that don't pull the curl out?
7. How do you deal with sections that are straight and fluffy at the same time?
8. How do you use roller jaw clamps without touching your hair so much it poofs out?

I am talking about bad hair that a simple spritz with water will not touch. Thanks in advance for any answers!
1. Leave-in then scrunch excess water, carry a bottle with conditioner+water mix and keep in purse for those frizzes if it's that bad...(using DevaCare products) B'leave-in + Angel Gel.

2. Bend over! And style away scrunching your hair UP.

3. I use Mist-er Right (DevaCurl) OR you can do no. 1 above again.

4. I wash every other day but sometimes I don't have time to even do that, so I just have a little spray bottle of water do that in the morning + leave-in plus your styling product, use a microfiber towel to scrunch excess...

5. Dealing with it now, can't help yah... : (

6. Sure! My hair is much longer than that but I like it loose, so I ♥ bobby-pins! ((I make sure I buy them similar to the color of my hair)) You can get creative: you can pick up the sides; you can do two twisties and bobby-pin it at the back; you can do a very cute bun and pin with decorative bobby-pins, etc. the list goes on, youtube it, it's helped me a lot!

7. Hahaha! Exactly what I'm dealing with! Trying products, I'm trying all of the DevaCare product line and it's working out well for me, I don't like the crunchy feeling, but something very important is to really put in your products when your hair is dripping wet and you have sort of scrunch it in the shower while conditioned and while rinsing the conditioner as well the trick is SCRUNCH SCRUNCH SCRUNCH! And a frizz serum ...

8. Eh?

Hope this helped a little... it's the little bit that I know, hopefully some other experienced girls can help further. This routine has deft. worked for me and my hair.

1. How do you deal with breezes/ wind/ humidity/ drizzle without a ton of product?

With a fist to the air! Even with product. Some people can pull off the scarf look though.

2. How do you see the back of your head and still have two free hands to style?

I don't.

3. How do you deal with getting (very) sweaty in your roots and needing to look presentable right after?

I don't, but maybe just running my hands through my roots and fluffing them up a bit, perhaps upside down? Maybe a light talc like product to dry it up?

4. How do you get through the learning curve without washing your hair constantly?

I have better things to do than wash my hair constantly. It takes 2-3 hours for my hair to be complete from wash to diffuse to fully dry and SOTC that I just limit that to either nights (usually ever 3 days), days I have off, or special occasions where I make that time to wash and style. There's always my barrettes and ponytail holders. :P

5. How do you get mega tangles caused by product out without brushing?

Only in the shower with wet hair and conditioner, and it takes a while, unless I use Del's Spritz and Condish method where the conditioner has time to penetrate and the slip to activate..then it takes no time at all to detangle. On occasion, I start out by finger combing my dry hair, then with a wide tooth comb, and then sometimes with a brush (I do love that scratching feeling from time to time)...but that's usually only if I am ready to wash it.

6. Are there any easy and neat up-dos for shoulder length hair that don't pull the curl out?

I suck at hair dos. Sorry.

7. How do you deal with sections that are straight and fluffy at the same time?

I try to hide them somehow. My straighter bits tend to be my underside. Sometimes I rewet and try to scrunch away and fix it.

8. How do you use roller jaw clamps without touching your hair so much it poofs out?

I'm clipping challenged. Can't help you there.

1. How do you deal with breezes/ wind/ humidity/ drizzle without a ton of product?
-Be realistic. You need to protect hair from wind - an elegant scarf? Or put your hair up on windy days if you're going to be outside. WInd will undo the best pile of leaves, knock over garbage cans, and undo even the hardest-hold gel. Drizzle? Umbrella!
2. How do you see the back of your head and still have two free hands to style?
-I just get my stunt double to do it.
3. How do you deal with getting (very) sweaty in your roots and needing to look presentable right after?
-Are you sure you don't look presentable? My scalp can sweat a whole lot and not be apparent in my hair. Getting the sweat dry might help.
4. How do you get through the learning curve without washing your hair constantly?
- Why bother? Wash your hair when you need to. When/if you want to. Why impose impractical rules on yourself when it frustrates you?
5. How do you get mega tangles caused by product out without brushing?
- Get in shower. Wet hair. Slather on huge gob of conditioner. Starting at the ends, with fingers or a wide-tooth comb, gently work out the tangle. Never rip, tear, yank, or give up. Stop and relax/take deep breaths often.
6. Are there any easy and neat up-dos for shoulder length hair that don't pull the curl out?
-My hair is fine and thus any updo tends to pull out the waves/curl or at least warp the shape. I have come to accept this. After an updo, I must re-do.
7. How do you deal with sections that are straight and fluffy at the same time?
- Love them both. This is normal. Scrunch the straight parts a bit more, use pin curls if you want, trim them shorter if they always hang too long. But don't scorn them. They may need a bit different treatment.
8. How do you use roller jaw clamps without touching your hair so much it poofs out?
- I use jaw clips on top of my hair for volume. Only on top, I don't twirl the hair or anything. I just open them up, put them near my scalp and close them. Then leave them there. Very little touching involved. But I don't do this until my hair is partly dry or it would leave weird dents.
If your hair is poufing out too much, you might need more gel... a leave-in... a layered haircut, more info. needed there.
