My usual schedule is to wear a ponytail in the morning, come back for lunch/nap/pool, and shower. Then style my hair for the evening when it's not as humid or hot.

We do all ponytails & braids here too - every effort I've ever made to have decent hair has failed unless I don't ride anything all day. Getting whipped & whirled around combined with the FL heat & humidity is not a "Good Hair Day" recipe.

Ditto this.

Even if I could get may hair to do what it supposed to do, without a hat on my head, I end up with a sunburn on the part in my hair. Baseball hat for me.

I have the same type of hair. I use Curls Rock and I usually use it to wear my hair down; however, I do use it when in WDW because it contains the frizzies well. I braid my hair each morning after putting Curls Rock in it. I also use barrettes. Hope this helps.

I really like the spin pin idea! I googled them after gert mentioned them and watched a couple youtube tutorials and I think this is what Im going to do, there is all kinds of styled you can do to get you hair up off you neck and off your face! Im so excited I want to run out and find these pins!

I put sunscreen on my part where my bangs come forward, otherwise I get fried there. No hat for me.

I have long thick curly hair. I use BedHead Control Freak level 3 when my hair is wet. Brush it through with a wide toothed comb then dry it straight with a round brush. Then I take a couple of bobby pins and put my bangs back.

You might find that your hair loves the humidity. Living in SC, VA, and WV, and visiting FL, allowed me to see just how curly my hair can get. It's something I never knew when growing up in CA or even going to school (and now living) in western WA. All I need is some aveda stuff that helps to hold in that moisture, and I'm good.

Now, if we are talking about what to do about the HEAT that goes along with having curly hair sitting on your head, then it's ponytail or bun all the way.


OH, and if you tend towards having a very sweaty head, don't put a cotton-based hat on your head. Went a whole day thinking I was the cutest thing ever (not really, but I hoped) until I saw my hat in a mirror, and it was just drenched in sweat. YUCK. Bought the more "tech" kind of hat quickly, so it at least hides the sweat and can dry better.

I grew up in MA. My hair does not love the humidity. I didn't realize I could even have cute hair until I moved to AZ. I dread going "home" now because my hair freaks out and refuses to behave itself. It's hopeless.

Wish I could do a short pixie-ish style but I do not have a good face for super short hair

I love Florida, because I have the kind of hair that normally can't decide if it's curly or straight (and no, it rarely manages "wavy").

But the moment I step off the plane in Florida, it poofs right up and announces that it's curly. I really think this is the climate I was meant for - humid and hot! Even the issues I usually have with dry skin clear right up.

So I don't do anything in WDW. I just let my hair go wild and free and enjoy the results.

I have heavy, super-straight hair; there's not a lot I can do with it even when I want to. It's either a hat or a ponytail, plus throw a brush in my bag for when the wind messes it up. I bring my own shampoo and hairspray from home because I can't use anything with a scent.

Pony and baseball cap pretty much every park day. I do have a cute pink plaid bucket hat I got at BB. Sometimes I will straighten my partially wavy hair and wear that. I'm very fair so I always wear a hat at the parks.

I have those pins. If your hair is heavy or thick, I would get two sets. I have one set (it came with two pins) and I have to use tons of bobby pins with them because my hair is thick and heavy.

What is a Spin Pin? How does it hold your hair? In a twist or bun? I have very fine hair (but a lot of it) so things like usually just fall out of my hair. I rely on Goody no metal elastics.
