I will be sure to do this next time.

No disrespect to the woman with the brush hair thing, but with this type of hair, I imagine others have the same problem as I - which is that our hair cannot handle much pulling. It will come out. Even with product, hair drying can be a bit of a problem. I do have a Revlon hair dryer brush, and it's alright, but yeah, it can be a problem. Am I the only one?

Humidity is a huge problem. In the summer, I've found that putting a bit of putty or glue will help control the halo of frizz effect on the crown of the head. Normally, I put it on when wet, because it can leave white reside when dried, and it will tack it down like nails through a carpet, lol. It also will plaster my waves and encourage clumping as if it were done with super glue, lol. This is great for maintaining a long wavy look, and best, it can be re wet.

The stuff lasts all day long. Personally, I like the Tough It Out Glue by Garnier, which I believe has been discontinued. Others work similarly, like Garnier Rough It Out Putty. Then there is the Spike Glue from Got2B.

Anyway, I hope that one day people realize this niche market and help us. It was recommended to me that I use a tension comb, which I have one but again, pulling equals hair loss. I'd compare the strands of my hair to a spider's web, or a fine silk from silk worm. I wish I were a chemist because I would be solving this problem for everyone, lol.
Seems to me the problem is us wavies and curlies fighting our hair, trying to be something we are not. Worldwide we are two thirds of the population, in Europe 55%, not a niche and not small.
