    Hello

    I have thick wavy hair that keeps going fluffy. It's not frizzy, it just goes fluffy when I leave it to dry or if I dry it with a hairdryer. I use a serum and a moose but it still goes fluffy. If I straighten my hair it still goes fluffy. I like to have it wavy, but without the fluffy-ness.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    My hair is similar to this although a nice thinning cut has done it the world of good

    I found that brushing/ combing my hair when it was wet made it dry fluffy, and using a hairdryer resulted in a big fluffy mess! So I've now resorted to using very little conditioner - as this stops the static feeling - and just using my fingers to comb through my wet hair and leaving it to dry while it's in a tame style. This way it dries a lot straighter and the weight of my hair pulls it down and reduces frizziness. This is probably a load of crap, but it works for me. Have you tried this??

    Yep, I've tried that. I've had it thinned out in the past and that didn't help, just made the fluffy-ness worse! I only comb when I'm in the shower and putting on some conditioner. I did find twirling it in different sections helped but it's so time consuming!

    Do you let your hair air dry?

    My hair is like that too! If I even attempt to blow dry or straighten it, I end up with an afro.

    What I do is comb it in the shower, then tie it back into plaits and undo them the next day when I wake up. It leaves your hair wavy and my hair stays a normal 'size'. Also, you could try curling it with curlers, since that's always worked for me too.

    As for just keeping it wavy - maybe sleeping with it in loose plaits?

    I also heard that rubbing your hair dry with a towel is a bad idea and makes the problem worse.

    You could try putting it into a few plaits when's its damp after you've just finished washing it. Then undo them once it's dry, and hopefully you'll end up with some pretty wavy hair that's hopefully not frizzy.

    It depends on the person...

    I am the same and have only found one shampoo and conditioner that does the job for me... and that is with Tresemme. Love 'em.... but I use TONNES of conditioner... I buy the BIG conditioner bottles and need a new one every month....that's how much I use... but it works wonders.

    Have you tried wrapping it in a towel until it's dry? (Obviously wrapping it in a way that dries it in a styled position - parted, combed back)

    I must have random curly hair :p:

    I only brush it before I wash it, never after That's frizz hell!

    But I do towel dry it a little and it doesn't frizz and I don't condition it a lot because it makes my hair horrible. No frizz though

    OP have you tried using a diffuser on your hairdryer?
