We've had makeup...how about hair?

I have longer, curly-ish hair. It's rather thin but I have LOTS of it. Living in a dry climate I don't have to worry alot about what humidity does to it and I am currently alternating between straightening it and wearing it curly.

How are you ladies keeping your hair under control in the parks? I'm loathe to just throw it in a pony tail every day but I think that may be the only option. Lots of product tends to just weigh my hair down and the level of humidity will make it next to impossible to straighten the mess that lives on my head out.

I usually go through the trouble of straightening it, then put it up once I'm tired of it. I just prefer the way it looks up when it's been straightened versus natural.

Pony tail every day. When it is as warm as it normally is when we go, I don't want my hair hanging down my back and on my shoulders.

That's going to be a tough question to answer since every girls hair is different and reacts different. When are you going? If it's real hot, you may wear it up anyway because of the heat.

Maybe consider using one hair product like a serum or cream designed for curly hair and the humidity that you run through when your hair is wet to keep it from frizzing. Look for products designed to combat humidity.

I have naturally curly hair that I straighten 95% of the time but when I go to WDW it isn't worth the effort.

I wash my hair with :

K-pak reconstructive s/c (only when I want to leave hair curly)
Spray good amount of aussie hair insurance leave in conditioner
Biolage hydro foam styler defines & sets curls tames my frizz & isnt crunchy

I use an anti-humidity product by Lee Stafford - my hair has a natural (and quite uncontrollable) kink. I always straighten it, even when in Florida. The Lee Stafford product keeps it nicely under control, straight and sleek

I start the day with mine "fixed" but by early afternoon, I usually have mine pulled up into a clip on the back (can't do ponytails - they give me a headache.)

I have long, thick, wavy hair. It gets really frizzy when in WDW. I put some frizz cream in it and then french braid it while wet. The french braid keeps it contained but if I want to wear it down later it is just wavy and not a complete mess.

I gave up on straightening my hair a few trips ago. I just use a little curling moose, put it up halfway and let it do what it wants.

1) thin hair + florida friz + RnRC tossing = weeklong rat nest
