Thanks for answering! I condition with Loreal curly/wavy for long/medium hair, my leave in is Shea moisture and I mainly use Biosilk Rock Hard gel. I think I'll go along with your suggestion and use more product back there, and maybe skip curl, although I sometimes do that anyway.

Worrying is like being in a rocking chair; it gives me something to do but it doesn't get me anywhere.

Best combo so far:
Shea moisture leave-in and BRHG
