Default wet or dry?

just curious but does it work better for you guys to put your products in when your hair is still wet or when it's dry or semi-dry? how 'bout layering products? I've tried putting one in while wet and then another product a while later.... but nothing seems to work. any suggestions?

usually I put a mouse in when it's wet...... and pretty much that's it besides hairspray. my hair used to be SO much better though-- it was defined spirals and now it's just fluff. what am I doing wrong?

The mousse may be too light for you, or it could be build up. I'd suggest trying a gel or cream styler and see if that helps define the curl.

Cheap Gels:
Aussie Tizz No Frizz
Dep Sport
Herbal Essences Humidity Defying Gel
Suave Firm Control Gel

I don't tend to use creams except for Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Cream, so I'm clueless as far as creams go.

I put my products in while its still really wet, that way I get an even coverage.

rosyCurls, do you blow dry your hair? I used to use hairspray, then blowdry and my curls turned out terrible and fluffy, a complete mess.. maybe it's the hairspray.

Mmm, the Garnier Fructis Curl Cream does wonders on my hair. SERIOUSLY.

I put all my products in when my hair is wet...it has a habit of junking up otherwise.

lately I've been using aussie volumizing foam right out of the shower, and following with garnier fructis hard curl gel. then I'll use some hairspray because I have a big problem with my products just disappearing as the day goes on. I diffuse, and may use a bit more of the aussie spray. this seems to work GREAT on humid days, but I live in Colorado where it's almost always dry.

I think the root of the problem is that my hair just isn't as curly as it used to be. Hormones? Cut? it's longer, now...usually a shorter style and layers give me more volume and curl, but I have a heck of a time finding a stylist who can cut my hair and do it nicely. I just want to be curly again!

Default The mop top brand pommade and gel is great for this.

I have been using moptop brand products on my naturally thick, curley and tendancy-toward-frizzy hair, and the moptop gel and pommade are wonderful for styling either wet to air dry or to blow dry. (the shampoo and conditioner are a must have for me because they moisturize my hair while really cleansing it. I have not found products like this in my nineteen years of doing my own hair. (I am 29 years old). Moptop is also advertised on this site so I would give it a shot. By the way there are no "sodium Laurel Sulfates" in the products or silicone or alcohol. Compare that to the products you are using. Just thought this would be helpful.
everyday you can be a cutie even if your sweating it out at the gym. Don't worry about looking silly just do what you enjoy and the people who are supposed to like you and see your value will see it and appreciate it.
