What a terrific thread. I've been away for a week (Belgium and Paris)and just found it upon my return. My hair is layered so even when I pull it back in a ponytail the frizz around the crown and sides is just awful. I've never found a produt that has worked for this nor a hairdresser who can do much about it. I'll hope that one of these suggestions will work although I don't think I'm ready for the straighening. In the past, when I've tried perms to get some curl, it has been a disaster - - completely dried out and looking much worse.

FromDC, my hair is actually healthier since I started the Japanese straightening. Maybe it's because I use my hairdryer for much shorter periods of time and I'm not pulling on my hair anymore to straighten it. Also, the technique used to straighten the hair is not harsh and, if done properly, the hairdresser will do a deep conditioning of your hair when you have it straightened.

Just returned from Asia & the humidity was horrendous, very bad for a curly hair. Mine is short
(not able to use an iron, just the blower) but it did gave me a bit of trouble. So planning ahead, as when travelling my hair always gives me a hard time, I brought with me the cutest "WIG" with mine haircut & color tone. I just used it during the evenings as we were on a cruise. It was a very clever solution, my husband loved the look & I got a lot of compliments from fellow travelers. Usually at home I use a straightener lotion, a hair shine & Sebastians Shaper hair spray. Never tried wrapping my hair in toilet paper at night, maybe that"ll work. Hair salons in Asia are abundant & not pricey. But how many times you will be able to go to one. In my case in 27 days of vacations I only had time to go twice on land as the cruise's hairsalon are IMO extremely expensive & they do not know how to handle curly hair.

Well, the grass is always greener etc. I have flat, stick-straight hair and would give anything for a curly mane!

OK, rbphilly found a miracle hair product.

rbphilly (and others)recommended Moisture Block made by sabino It is fairly expensive (22 for 3.5 ), but I've spent so much on my hair, what's another $20!

When it arrived, I said to self "this looks like the same (worthless) stuff I have bought for years"-- a clear oil-like substance you rub on your hands and run through your hair. However, I gave it a try. It is indeed the most fabulous stuff I have ever used--at least for my hair (very fine and frizzy in humidity-not that luxurious thick curly hair I am jealous of).

Although it looks just liek stuff I have had before, it is very different. I LOVE it. I'm using it every time I wash my hair even it it is not humid. It makes my hair much more silky and smooth.

If you have frizzy hair, buy Moisture Block. Just search for it via Google. You won't regret it and 3.5 oz will last your forever.

Get a hair cut? What a choice! How about not cutting your hair at all and using the right products that waterproof your hair in any climate. No toilet paper, no systems, no washing with conditioners, no making your hair into a salad. Just plain old one product that does it all.

Get your hair striaghtened once a week? What a waste of time and money. There is another way to solve that problem without the hassle and cost

Your hair has lost its curl because of gray hair? No!!! it's lost its curl because you haven't found a way to control the loss of pigment. Easy to cure. Use Moisture Block, gel and a micro-fiber towel. Your hair will have a beautiful curl until the next shampoo. Waterproof your hair Not a gimmick ... it truly works. Walk on the side of progress not regress.

Thinning shears are one of the worst things that you can use on naturally curly hair. The razor is absolutely the worst. Reducing bulk is best with knotching shears. No frizz!

You are right except when using a flat iron, make sure that the iron is at least 400 degrees and use the highest setting but only use it with a product that locks in the essential 10 to 11% moisture while blocking out excess moisture.

Humidity spray does not protect against any climate. The reason? They use alcohol with a diluted silicone, which eventually dries out the hair. Use Moisture Block. No alcohol, no additives and protects against 100% humidity until the nest shampoo.

Your hair frizzes because the products that you suggest are water soluble. You can not control humidity (water) with water soluble products. You need waterproof products that completely control hair in any climate and that comes out with any shampoo.

Moisture Block holds up even in non-humid but rainy or cold climates. Control frizz completely

Onibas - your posts have give the impression of the infomercial that just wouldn't go away.

BTW - advertising is a violation of the TOS.
