Pony tail hanging out of a ball cap or just stuffed under the ball cap so it doesn't hang down and get sweaty on my neck and drive me crazy.

This is my hair, too. I'm a wash-and-go gal. Usually by the time I get where I'm going, my hair is dry enough to pull into a ponytail and that's where it stays.

If you look up Lilith Moon on Youtube she gives you a lot of cute and easy ways to wear you hair up/braided.

Both of us have wavy/curly long hair and its amazing (not in a good way) to what the humidity does to our hair. Most of the times I leave it down but bring an elastic to throw it up in if it bugs me too much. I wouldn't waste your time straightening it because 10 minutes in the humidity and poof back to curly.
Also try frizzoff.com it has AMAZING not weigh your head down products (Curl Keeper) specifically designed for curly hair. Have a look...thankfully I live close enough to visit the salon. The products are a bit pricey but last a long time and so worth the money. And with a quick look they ship to the US and for sure ship to Canada.
We ARE Canadian.

Awesome thread! I'm a curly-head too. If you're familiar with naturallycurly.com, my hair is a combination of 3B and 3C. It's fine, tends towards dry, and a big pain in the rear.

I wear a ponytail a lot. My Disney look will be a ponytail. Sexy.


Shampoo: I like the Ouidad Moisture Lock Shampoo.

Conditioner: I've been shopping around lately, but my current favorite is the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration. It's cheap and leaves my hair smooth. Because of Frizz Issues, I decided to try the Ouidad Climate Control Conditioner. It's fine. I got it on sale. But I don't plan to repurchase once I run out.

Leave-in Conditioner: Ouidad Moisture Lock. It's hydrating and doesn't weigh my curls down.

Gel: The best gel for me is LA Looks Sports Gel. It's ridiculously cheap - like $5 for a huge bottle. First I smooth some gel onto my hair. Then I comb my hair with a wide tooth comb and put it in a ponytail. Then I apply more gel into the ponytail in sections and finger comb it. The gel really helps with frizz. It's the best gel I've found - and I've tried a lot of gels - for my hair. It can get crunchy but if it feels a bit stiff after it dries, I just twist my ponytail to break up the crunchiness.

That's it! If I find myself getting frizzy during the day, I wet my hands and glide it down the ponytail and twist it. If I have a bit of conditioner, I add that and that generally helps.

Sabino Lok & Block

I have thick curly hair and I use Sabino Lok & Block. It is fantastic and REALLY works. It is not cheap, but a little goes a long way. Humidity will no longer effect your hairstyle and it keeps your hair soft and easy to manage. I have used it for over 5 years and have tried every product on the market. This stuff can not be beat.

I wear mine up in a messy bun. I straighten the front of my hair, but other than that, it's up and out of the way, and cute for pictures.

Yup, me too. In plan on showering and straightening the night before and ponytail the next day.

You can try and fix your hair but humidity is going to get the best of it.

Me Too!! Between the humidity and the roller coasters whipping it around, my hair doesn't stand a chance during the day. Evening is a little better - John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Serum works for me.

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.
My hair sounds very similar to yours. Very curly, but thin. It's easy for me to straighten mine because it is thin, so for theme park trips I usually straighten it and then throw it up in a pony (no part so my scalp doesn't burn). If I know we are going to do water rides, I will do a single braid or pigtail braids so it doesn't poof up after getting wet! I don't like to wear hats in the parks because you usually have to take them off for rides, and I find it annoying to have to keep taking it on and off. Plus it limits my peripheral vision, which at Disney I hate to do because there is so much to see! But that's personal preference.

I don't have this problem, but I have a friend who does. She braids her hair and sometimes makes a bun out of the braid.......
