According to Lorraine Massey that's because the hair framing our faces is exposed to more environmental damage, and that makes sense to me. We turn our faces toward things we're gathering...

The Jessicurl products worked great for me right after I went CG, when my hair was super greasy, so I don't think it's a greasy vs. dry hair thing.

I suggest that you'd be better off diffusing your hair first (to about 85% dry), then letting it air dry the rest of the way. It's the last part of drying which often creates frizz. That's Lorraine...

I've never seen the point.

Go by dew point, not humidity. If the dew point is low (below 40F) where you are, you're probably doing best with more conditioner, and less gel. In medium dew points (40-60F), you'll need a...
