What gets me is that right after I've used some good styling products and let my hair air-dry, then loosen it up a bit, I have soft, fairly nice curls, although a bit bushy at the crown -- (3b/3c, with varied textures).

Then I go outside (beach town in SoCal) for a walk, and my hair not only frizzes but fuzzes and loses that softness.

I'm still looking for that product that will prevent this. Any ideas?
