How do I keep it from getting so big once dry?

I have type 2c hair, pretty sure of that anyway. I love how my hair looks when it's wet right after I applied product but it dries so big and fluffy. I just want it to not be so big that it envelops my head and face.Any tips would help. Thanks!

What styling products are you using? Do they contain humectants? Here's some info that might be helpful:
I am new to the Curly Method and will be starting first thing tomorrow. The products do have anti-humidy listed on the bottles.
