Different hair types on one head?

My new problem...

My hair is 3/b with 3/c in the back. I have a little 3/a here and there, I think from damage (highlights, etc). My main problem at the moment is trying to get the 3/c hair in the back to look decent. I recently got a devachan cut and it seems like with the layers in the back, it got even curlier. It's botticelli until you get to the end of the layers, then it's pencil size spirals on the end of the layers. It looks really weird to me. The longest layers are just below my shoulders.

Sometimes it just a big fuzz ball back there and doesn't go with my nicer 3/b curls on the sides. I've tried plastering it with my gel, but that's not working really well. Anyone else have any ideas?

I just bought some Phytodefrisant, do you think that will help me?

    Sounds like my hair. I've always struggled with trying to get my back/underneath to match the top/sides. For me, the key is HOW I apply the product more than the product. I rake my product in all over, using my fingers like a wide-tooth comb, and squeezing my fingers together with the hair in them to pull my hair down. Then, when I'm done with that, I scrunch the top/sides to encourage curl more there.
    I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.

    Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!

    Good idea. I'll have to try raking it in. I've been just scrunching it in here and there, so I probably haven't been getting it worked in as much. thanks for the tip! :D

    Sounds like mine too, I have all sorts of curls going on in the back! I let my hair air dry for an hour or so, then diffuse the rest of the way - when I'm diffusing I gently grab the hair in the back and pull it down as I dry. Helps a bit but Im still working on it.
