Any suggestions as to what to do while growing out bangs?

I used to be a chronic straightener with "sweepy" bangs. Now they are a giant curly poof on the side of my head.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Very cute!

    So far I've been clipping them back, but it makes me look/feel like I'm 12 again!

    Great blog!

    I'm not sure about your length, but I'm trying to grow out very short forehead "fringy" bangs (whoooah mistake!) When I scrunch in my product after washing, I take a teeeeeeeny tiny bit of gel between my first two fingers and I attempt to clump the bangs together with a few of the longer pieces, twisting a bit and then pushing it out of my face. This usually helps -- sometimes the little pieces pop out and they're a little whispy and cute, but sometimes they stick out oddly so I just twist them (dry) and pin them back with a bobby pin, or I have a headband day.

    Here's an example of my bang curls just sort of hanging out. They're a little annoying but generally don't look awful.

    Hope this helps :)

    Hair type: Fine, fairly porous, shoulder length when curly. Probably a 3a or 3b with tight ringlets now that it's getting longer. Hair loves aloe, hates glycerin.

    Co-Wash: Suave Naturals Aloe and Waterlily (my HG conditioner!)
    Rinse Out: Garnier Sleek and Shine, Trevor Sorbie curl conditioner (UK only, unfortunately)
    Stylers: KCCC, AG Re:coil, TIGI mousse, but open to suggestions!
    Gels: BRHG (my one and only)
