Concerning the curly hair thing:
I have curly (& I mean curly) hair, and one thing I've learned is to NEVER wrap your hair in a towel after a shower. I used to wrap it up in a "turban" (as my mom would always call it) after I showered to keep it off of me, help dry it quicker, etc. NOT worth it. My hair would always be frizzy, and no matter what I did, it wouldn't smooth out. So now after I shower, I comb it until all of the knots are out (upside down, too) and squeeze it like a you would a wet towel. It dries MUCH nicer. This helps esp. in the summer. Hope this helps!
Just wanted to say THANK YOU! I have coarse/thick wavy hair and it was always frizzy, no matter what product I tried or how I styled it. Well, I always wrapped it turban style with my towel and left it that way while I applied make-up, lotion, etc... I followed your advice and stopped wrapping it period and wow! No more frizz! I don't even have to use any products on it and it's soft and shiny always! I just squeeze the water out with my hands and let it dry naturally. At first the dripping on my shoulders was annoying, but it's so worth it now that I see the results. Thank you so much for your wisdom!
