No Matter What I Do
 
i can NOT for the life of me get my hair to stay frizz-free and keep its curl throughout the day! i start my day by diffusing and using about four dime sized amounts of CK and a handfull or two of herbal essences set me up. after its dry i spray it with garnier fructise anti-humidty hair spray, and i'm very happy with my hair;perfect curls, full of body, shiny. then only two or three hours later its a mess. its lost most of its bounce,a quarter of its curl(if that makes any sense),the shine is gone and its frizzy! i'm going crazy because i just cant seem to figure out what to do. i'm getting so aggravated and full of this i'm starting to lean towards straightening again! please help!

I noticed in your siggie your conditioner has aloe in it. That's almost exactly what my hair does with any aloe in it. Looks great for a few hours than POOF! And it doesn't seem to matter what gel I have over top.

Sorry you're having such a hard time finding the LVPNG. Maybe you could go to the swap boards and swap with someone for it.

ohhh i've never heard of that before.. interesting, i'll try not using that tomorow and just use my suave naturals for both and see what happens

and this really nice person did PM me and tell me that the kmart near her was having a sale on LVPNG and shed love to buy me one and i'd give her the money, but my moms just a little bit protective...

Totally understandable. If my son suddenly had hair products (or in his case it would be pc parts) showing up at the door, I'd be concerned too.

Good luck

Wait, are you diffusing and then applying products?

And I hate to sound like a broken record, but are you touching your hair much throughout the day? Once my hair is dry, and I've scrunched the crunch, I need to keep my hands out of it. Otherwise, it goes limp and gets frizzy.

no that doesnt sound like a broken record to me because i touch my hair:oops: i thought when it was wet i wasnt supposed to and dry i could! *embarassed* hahaha most of the time though i just twist it around my fingers to get the frizz back into the curl.

Hee. I know it's tempting, but try not touching your hair. I'm sure you'll see a major improvement.

Just one more thing. Ive noticed the directions for the CK says after you put it in, dont touch your hair at all for 15 minutes. So try putting in the CK, leaveing it alone for 15 minute then putting in your gel and diffusing and so forth.
