Hair drying in an ugly, stiff, unnatural way during the day :c

Ok, hellooo, my name's Sarah, I'm 14 and mixed with white and african. My hair type is 3b, I'm pretty certain about that.

My problem is, my hair looks really nice when I've just done it, I use a hairdryer with a diffuser to dry it as much as I can before school and dry the back, attempt to dry the ends as much as possible without making them frizzy but somehow...During the day, my hair goes from this

I have no idea what to do. I think I might need a haircut, you know, to shape my hair a bit but aside from that, I'm completely lost.

    I cannot see the pictures, but if a big problem is the way it's drying as far as it getting frizzy, you can try to apply curl definers (usually while your hair is wet). Gel is a go-to for a lot of girls
    & if you put a little oil on it, your hair will not be hard. I have 3c/4a hair & "snotty" products work well on my hair to define my curls. You might have to try many products to find what is BEST for you. Good luck! :-)

    Try doing your hair routine at nighttime, throw your hair into a pineapple that way your hair could be dry in the morning and you can see what you are working with.

    Hi I'm 15 and I think I have the same problem. After I wash my hair it looks really nice and it swings and everything, but once it dries it goes all stiff and it sticks out on either side of my head. Even if I shake it or flip upside down it still just sticks out. I don't know what to do with it.
