I have this layer at the nape of my neck as well. I get it cut a good 1-2" shorter than the rest of my hair so that it doesn't hang down below the curly layers. Have your stylist isolate these when...

Everyone's hair is so different! ;-)

I still need that hard hold even in summer. I guess that's the difference for me in terms of light vs. heavy conditioning, etc.

The recipe I use is super basic; oils rob my hair of their curls (too heavy for me) and I've never figured out whether or not aloe was doing anything for it, so I keep it out of the big batch.
