#1: Styling Hair In Mornings
I have curl type 3a. Without any products in my hair it will just frizz. My hair is very dry. I used to have an afro (I'm white btw) but recently have had my hair shortish and have been gelling it in the mornings using Garnier Fructis Style High Resistance Gel. I wash my hair every morning when i shower, dry it slightly but still keeping the moisture in and then using my fingers pull the gel through my hair trying to get rid of every last bit of frizz. When I go to sleep my hair gets totally wrecked and styling it any other time than straight after it's been washed really isn't an option. From what I know about my sort of curly hair is that it shouldn't be washed everyday but every few days? I wouldn't have a problem doing this but styling it to shape would be a problem when it isn't wet. Is wetting my hair in the mornings then gelling it or applying other products OK or would this give the same effect as washing it? It's hard having curly hair!
