my hair also grows forward. i always part on the side. sometimes i clip it while drying but mostly not. and there is a curl from the middle top that curls down over my forehead!
some days my hair behaves and does not curl over my face, other days not.
so, then i clip it when it is almost dry or dry -- i found some cute snap clips that are tiny and i can put right on the front side. sometimes i use a larger barrette and just ciip it in maybe 3 inches down from top of my head.
sometimes i take out clips after a bit, other days they stay in .
it's trial and error, and as every curly girl knows, each day is different!
i've bought clips/barrettes different sizes, look in cvs, walgreens, rite aid, ulta, etc.....
