    Can you post any pictures? What's your routine?

    Well, I can't really post pics because I'm not sure how to get them on the computer lol. But at the moment I'm using the DevaCurl line, but I can't afford to use it all the time, so when that stuff runs out, I'll have to find new stuff. But my routine isn't that complicated. I finger comb when applying the conditioner in the shower. I rinse my hair and use paper towels to sort of scrunch-dry it. After that, I smooth gel over my hair, then I scrunch what seems to be a lot of it. I graze my head lightly to pat down flyaways and such, and that's pretty much it. I don't touch it, so I don't know. It's not like it looks terrible, but I sorta just want it to look the same as it did in the morning.

    it just depends on your hair type. My curls don't fall out just because I put gel on them. Looser curl patterns will get weighed down more easily. You can always scrunch after you put gel in, but if you're not getting even coverage then you will experience some spots frizzier than others.

    thanks for all the suggestions everybody! here's another question though lol. Are there any good drugstore conditioners you can recommend? I'm running out

    V05 conditioners are great! they are cheap, so you won't mind using a lot (which you will need to do bc it is watery) and they have many different smells so you won't get bored!

    The weather were you live could be causing the problem. Try an anti-humidity serum
    Hope this helps :cherry:
