    You should try elasta qp glaze on wet/damp moisterized hair.. the wave affect it had on my hair was crazy. I'll be back with pictures...and it doesnt leave my hair hard and crunchy..but I do not like the feeling a get when its being washed out though..

    Maybe we need to see a pic of your hair & the look you are trying to achieve in order to give better advice.

    I have pretty thick hair (in volume, not strand size) and I never have a problem getting my hair to lay down smooth with just some conditioner and/or water.

    same here... i only do it on wet hair since it's easier to train. just maneuver it into the direction your want. use some holding gel (i like aveda flax and aloe gel) and then use a scarf to help it along as it dries.

    Pro line softener and Organics twist and loc gel lays my hair out smooth. It leaves my hair completely soft.

    Thanks for the suggestions really. But I have tried most of these things. not to say that they dont work at all but they fail the test of time.(hardness,dryness crackhead like puffyness)

    i recently did a protien treatment and yesterday i decided to try bunning w/ a cheapy conditioner. whenever i used a wide toothed comb or dennan my hair would become a big puff but when i smoothed W/my fine tooth it looked like i was getting somewhere!(i guess its the technique or maybe the protien?) but i still need to expiriment to see what works best on my hair. my hair had too much "lift" for my liking and was wasnt really wavy but the bun was wearable for a late night run

    also whenever i put a link in my post NP logs me off I thought my fotki was in my sig anyway

    Ok. . .I just checked your album. It seems like you shouldn't have any problems getting your hair to lay down. Maybe I'm just not understanding what it is you are trying to achieve.

    Are you pulling the hair back tight enough when you do the bun? I'm not sure what else to suggest.

    I hope you find something that works for you.

    Oyin's Shine and Define. I used this a few times on damp hair and it did wonders. The hold was soft and the scent doesn't last all day which is great to me.

    any product at all works for me. it's really more about tying a scarf on top of it to smooth and brushing it with my ultra-soft baby brush (ya know, the kind that mommas use to brush their babies' hair).

    I agree and also Curl Junkie Aloe Fix Styling Gel is great also. It slicks my hair down great, but it is expensive.

    Flax Seed Gel and Shea butter mixture. Boil the flax seeds in water until the gel is the consistancy that you like, blended with Shea butter (I find the white kind is the waxiest which = great hold). Oil is not needed but it can be added in. Enjoy! This works great for braids and twists too.
