back of my hair is poofy, front and sides are fine????

Another new hair issue...i apply the same amount of product to the back of my hair as I do the top and sides (Today's product of the day is Garnier Fructis curl cream with the leave-in sleek and shine conditioner). The front and sides of my hair look fine, but the back is puffy and dry! I am sick of it!!! How do I get it to lie flat??????
thanks
2c/3a

Worrying doesn't take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace

Best combo so far:
SheaMosture Curl and shine milk , Ouidad heat and humidity gel

    I have the same problem. I've found that I just have to put more prooduct in the back. If you leave some of your conditioner in after you rinse, it may help to leave a little more in the parts that are getting frizzy.

    Me too. I've learned to START product application in the back. When you've got the product on your hands, the first place you touch will be deposited with the most product. Start smoothing in the back/underneath, then move to the top and sides.
    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!

    I do the same. You just need more product in the back. I used to hate using so much product & it would feel like a waste going through a bottle so fast, but it's no use if you don't load up!

    For me, I find that this is the area of my hair that tends to have more damage. I guess because it's more exposed to the elements and stuff.
    I'm thinking that's why it tends to get poofier when I don't use enough product to "tame" it. I agree with the pp about starting application in the back. It seems to make a difference.

    Modified CG, CJ Rehab, JCWDT, KCKT, VO5 Chamomile Tea Therapy, CJDF, HEBE Gel/Mousse, Bioinfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo, occasional protein

    Experimenting with BRHG
