Default Frizzy in the back!

I have curl type 3c. The front area has tighter curls, and has always been softer and shinier than the back. No matter how many products I slather on, the back always ends up a frizzy mess. The curls themselves are well-shaped and coiled nicely, but each is surrounded by somewhat bristly frizz. Even if I put the same amount of product on each section, the front dries beautifully, while the back remains a nightmare. I am at my wit's end. Anyone else have this problem? Suggestions?

Check to make sure there are no sulfates in your shampoo. Turns out they were drying my hair out causing frizz

Sounds like the sections of your hair have different properties.....try more protein on the frizzier section if it's also dry. Maybe use a good moisturizing conditioner and leave it in then seal with a bit of oil such as jojoba in that back section.

It helps people give you advice if they know your hair properties. Here's a link to help Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics Once you determine your properties, you can look for people with hair like yours and see what they use and do.

It would also be good to know what products you are currently using. That way, people might be able to identify ingredients that are causing your problem.

Crown/canopy is a difficult area for most of us. Canopy is most exposed to the elements and crown hair has to be cut just right (that hair is "asked" to go in different directions, can have cowlicks, etc.) My crown was always my flattest, most difficult area. It's better when it's cut frequently (I get a haircut every six weeks) and I make sure that I distribute the product there and don't miss it (I apply some product right side up and bend over and apply some upside down.)

I have found with the back of my hair I need to use more LIs and less gels. The top/back of your head is where all the elements hit first. It's even the place where water hits first in the shower. As a result it sustains more environmental damage. The best place to start is exactly where Kathymack suggested. Find out your hair properties first and then find products that work with those properties. It could be that you are using the wrong products and ending up with producty frizz
