How do you deal with a poof head and oily skin?

Does anyone else ever style their hair in the morning so that it looks decent and not frizzy , but when you arrive back home from school your hair has turned into a MAJOR poof of monster proportions. Especially with the humidity of summer. The thing that annoys me is that no-one says to me "holy c*** your hair is GINORMOUS!!!".

Also does anyone have any home remedies for oily skin. im not allowed makeup so i just use baby powder before i go out(to soak up some of the oil) however when i get back home my face has turned into an oil slick.

oily skin and monster hair is not a good look so does anyone have any help for me. Or some support that i'm not the only curly out there suffering from this summer madness.

The only way I managed to control my hair (since I had no idea how) back in high school was to put a ton of gel on it and then pull it back in a bun Lol. Having rock hard hair was not a good look trust me lol so i definitely do not recommend that! As for the oily skin issue, Clean & Clear Oil absorbing sheets could be your new best friend . I carry these everywhere, they're awesome!

I have the exact same problem sometimes, so you're definitely not alone. As for the poofy hair part, I suggest finding a better leave-in conditoner specifically designed to help frizz caused by humidity (ex. Ouidad Climate Control). I suggest looking around this sight to see if other curlies have recommendations for good leave-in conditioners, because I still haven't found one that solves the problem.

I know it's not much advice, but hope it helps!
I used to think gel was for a wet look the truth is that it's to keep away frizz and hold your look! Experiment with gels, the one that works the best for me KCCC! Also before you put in any products in your hair you should apply some leave in conditioner to keep your hair moisturized and frizz free

And finally if your hair dries slightly crunch you can light squeeze your hair to get rid of the crunch! But wait to do this till your hair is completely dry!
