Exclamation Irritated with hair!!

Hey guys so no matter how much gel I put on my hair my hair always stand up instead of laying down. Do you guys have any ways to get it to lay down. My hair is not very long but it is past my shoulders when straight.

Try using heavier products on damp hair with a technique similar to shingling.

You may want to wait for it to grow out...it might just looking a mess if you layer it with too much product/gel, but I guess you can give that a shot.

Is it long enough to tie up? Maybe try tying it up at night and stretch it a lil bit.

You can use those metal clips that are usually used for roller sets on the ends while it's wet then take them off and fluff when dry.

I have the same problem and I'm pretty sure its due to shrinkage. I also have a problem with defining my curls. I know its not important to most people but I like my curls to be defined. Stuff that used to work to define them do not seem to work now. My hair really loves protein but I can't find items that have enough protein to keep my curls defined. If I do get any curl definition it is gone by the end of the day -sigh-
