Frizzy layer??

Hi guys
Ive got mostly 3c curls and ive had long layers in my hair for a while and they've generally been pretty alright, however, there is this ONE small area at the back of my head that always looks dry and is frizzy and there are no prominent curls - just a wavy mess. All the other areas that are layers are fine though. I've tried conditioning masks, leave in conditioner, DIY moisturising spray (just moisturising hair products diluted in some water, really) AND anti frizz cream. Can anyone recommend something to me?

Thankyou!
Clarify and chelate, add products to dripping hair - leave in plenty of a true conditioner rich in the major emollients, the fatty alcohols and cationic surfactants. Limit or avoid anything that builds up: butters, waxes including cetyl esters, some polyquats, silicones, proteins etc. humectants can also contribute to frizz.

Also consider damage, is that spot getting hit hard by a power shower, rubbing on your car headrest or cotton pillowcase?

Yes! It definitely gets lots of sun and would be rubbing against my car seat, cotton pillowcase, etc.

Aside from the products recommended, is there anything I can do to stop it from going crazy from my pillowcase?
I have some areas like that and my hair analysis showed there was a lot of kinking that kept the hair from grouping together well. You could try some oils and that area to see if that helps.
Salt & pepper wavy mix 2B/2C
Low to normal porosity, coarse, kinky, normal elasticity
Current favorites:
Low poo: Yes To Cukes Color Protection (the no sulfate one)
Conditioners: Renpure MPHIP, CJ Smoothing Lotion, AB LI, CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Argan/Olive, Darcy's Pumpkin
Style: FSG, BRHG
Pre-poo/DT: Conditioner with honey & coconut oil

It's also possible that your curl pattern varies in that area. I have some super small areas which are barely wavy. In addition, I have some areas where my hair has gone grey, which are both coarser than the rest of my hair, and less curly.

Definitely DT, and target the area with more leave in. You could also try dampening that area after your hair is dry, applying a curl activator, and following that with some more gel, and scrunching, then letting it air dry.

Also, consider whether that area could be in the centre of your hair, or section of your hair when you're applying your conditioner or gel. If it is, then it's possible you're just not getting enough in there. You can counteract that by either smoothing the conditioner or gel over the surface of your hair, then flipping it over and scrunching the rest in; or you can squish it in really well, for longer than you think you should need to (I do this for about as long as it would take me to walk an uncrowded city block).
Peace,
