The top layer of my 2c hairs head is always frizzy and not curly just flat. I use giovanni shampoo tee tree and I've tried just plain raw shea butter. But nothing seems to work even with clips I've tried everything but nothing seems to work..
How do you apply your products?

I'm prone to flat head as well. What do you do to your hair in the shower?

Well Angelicak in the shower I shampoo my scalp and etc. Then I rinse it out then I conditioner using raw shea butter. So know to styling when I jump out I just apply gel to my soaking wet hair and scrunch , using my old teacher. Oncein a while ill use jojoba oil on the scalp to calm frizz and scrunch but these methods just don't seem to work. How do you style your hair and what do you do to your hair in the shower?
Well! When I'm in the shower I totally follow the curly girl book 100%! I'm also prone to a flat top as well so I know what you're dealing with! When I'm in the shower I never let the water running through my hair without holding my hair up. I've found that this alone helps a lot because when I let the water run through without holding my hair up, it really weighs it down and gives me the flat head I despise. Then I let my hair down from my hands and don't let it get wet, and I no poo my scalp, then hold my hair with one hand and rinse out the soap with the other. Then I condition, comb, and use one of those big claw clips to do everything else, take out monster clip and hold my hair and rinse the conditioner out by squeezing my hair up. I squeeze as much water as I can out and than I flip my hair over and use a pillow case to squeeze out even more water. Then To apply my gel I use a nickel to quarter sized amount and spread onto both hands and squeeze into my hair, still flipped. I coat my hair in about 2 quarters worth of gel. Then put some leave in, coating it again and than I diffuse! Hair still flipped upside down. I make sure to hold my diffuser close to my head and put it on my crown, where my hair flattens the most. And never dry all the way an do other spots as well rotating my head so I can get my scalp drier than air drying and get rid of the weight holding my hair down. Then I right my hair and see my crown is more lifted than it would be! I hope this helps! Here's a pic of my diffused 2c hair! ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1365265735.739049.jpg

Wow your hair is really pretty an I like that method you use I have never tried it before but I think I am. Also, I do blow dry my hair up till it touches close to my scalp, but I like how you hold your hair up and Idk about you but i use a lot of gel. What kind of gel do you use?
I use a lot of gel too, I'm still trying to break my over use of products. I use this gel called volumax, you can find it at sally's. I have like half a bottle left and I've been using it for about 2 months now. Not sure how strong the hold is but it makes my hair decently crunchy. But since I shower at night, I sleep on it and the crunch is almost totally gone by morning.
