Fuzzies over my curls...

Does anyone ever get little fuzzie hair over their curls? It always happens to me. Where my main curls look gorgeous, but there are always a few fuzzies on top. Sometimes I use a little coconut oil to tame them, but how can I prevent this?

So yeah, does anyone else have that problem?

    I seem to get them when I over-diffuse, since the air is flowing up the hair shaft. That's my theory at least. So I try to diffuse until my hair gets crunchy and then let it air dry the rest of the way. This way I don't get frizz.
    2c-3a. Thick density. Texture = mixture of medium and fine.

    Always trying to boost my curl!


    Go-to products: Pink Boots, CJSG, LALSG, Abba Pure Finish gel
    Experimenting with: CJAF, CJ CCCC, JCRR/CC, BRHG, PB Goo, Re:Coil, Komaza CHP, EcoStyler Protein
    Didn't like: HESMU, Matrix Biolage Gelee (both too goopy)

    I get that type of frizz, too. I think it's surface frizz.

    I don't diffuse, but I've been noticing that I get it more when I use [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] alone, without a stronger gel on top.

    Wonder what else causes this type of frizz?

    ETA: There's a post called "Types of Frizz" that explains all the different kinds of frizzies....I cannot for the life of me find it right now :confused4:
    very fine/dense/high porosity
    No heat styling

    A lot of the times this sort of frizz is caused by shorter hairs breaking away from the main curl - ie, these hairs are new growth and part of a different curl. You can't really get away from having a few, but careful handling when scrunching and a gel with stronger hold will help them from popping away so soon.
    3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.

    That might be cause by magnesium sulfate. My hair gets REALLY "fuzzy" when I use products with magnesium sulfate in it.
