Question Frizzy in the back?? Gel??

So I think I'm a 3b (not completely sure), but my curls range in size a little bit. I got a haircut a while back that has left me with two choppy layers in the back, and it makes the back of my hair really voluminous. I can't easily get rid of it without chopping a bunch of length, and I don't really want to do that, so I'm trying to get it to grow out. I always have a chunk of hair in the back of my head, the very top layer, I guess the canopy, that is undefined and gets frizzy. I was told it could be because of damaging hairties, so I switched to plastic ones that don't rip my hair, but it hasn't gone away (I hardly ever put my hair up anyway). I don't flat iron my hair, and I hardly ever blow dry it. I don't shampoo either. Anybody know a cure for this problem??

Also, I was wondering what are the best curly hair gels to use. I want to find one that really works for me, I don't want it to leave my hair frizzy!!
Thanks!!!

The best way to choose ingredients/products is by hair properties. Here's a link to help you with yours Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics Once you determine your properties, you can look for others with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.

If your hair is damaged, it's possible that protein might help. Why don't you try PTs followed by DTs??

While I understand that people are hesitant to loose length, there's really nothing pretty about more hair that doesn't look good. If you can get a good haircut that shapes your hair well and adds the right layers, you may find that it helps with your frizzy crown/canopy. I know it really helped me when I had that issue (which is VERY common.)
