jersey, I feel your pain. Your hair is a lot like mine, except that mine is thicker and more messy.
I've been trying to find something that either makes it go curly or stay straight, but so far nothing has worked with the exception of rolling my hair in curlers and using a flat iron. I don't like using either one of those because curling takes forever, and I have a mortal fear of frying my hair with a flat iron. If you find something that works, please let me know!
