Spin Pins: I've seen them available at target,cvs, etc. should be easy to find.

When my hair was longer, I had to use 4, but now that its just past shoulder length I can get away with 2. I actually put them in while my hair is still damp but not dripping after I wash it. They don't stay in otherwise - my hair is thick and contrary. By the end of the day, my spin pin bun will be a little loose as my hair dries, but then it just takes on that "messy bun" look.

I love them. They work just as well in my daughter's fine hair, provided I put them in while her hair is damp also. I've never tried to put them into her hair when it's dry.

I have long, thick, curly hair. Since we go in summer, I spray gel it and twist it up with a claw clip. I then add a stretchy, black, no-slip headband. It's all about function in summer!

Wella shampoo and conditioner is awesome! I've only tried the one in the orange bottles, but it eliminates the bit of frizz I have. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum is also great for frizz and heat

I'm crazy about straightening my hair - unfortunately my hair absolutely loathes humidity. It is immediately frizzy and wet looking, greasy even. And it sticks to my face and neck and it's just a mess. I tried every morning last Sept. but pretty much every day I ended up throwing it up in a pony tail and pinning back my bangs because I just felt so gross. The only things that made it any better was my aveda smooth straightening serum and then during our breaks in the middle of the day I'd put in some LUSH dry shampoo to de-grease it a little bit. I did manage to get my hair to look OK some days, but I wish I hadn't even bothered and just put it up Also I'm glad I finally remembered to put a little sunscreen on my middle part that was exposed to the sun - I usually burn that part of my scalp but not this trip Hoping my hair will be long enough this next trip to make it curly - My curls love the humidity! (Phew, sorry for this novel!)

I also have super curly hair. I'm growing it out just for Disney in June. I'll wear a pony with a visor. That way I can take it on and off easy and the visor will keep the little curls out of my face. If I tried to wear it down, I'd have an Afro before the end of the day!! I live in south east TN so my hair knows humidity. Ball hats are my best friend!!!

This is exactly what I do. My hair is long & very straight. I had enough of ball caps in my softball days. To me, they're much hotter than a ponytail. I do have very fair skin, but sunblock is an easy & much cooler way to prevent burning. We always go back to the room to shower & dress for dinner, so I can look more presentable for part of the day.

I have long, thick curly hair. We have a water purifier at home and I honestly think my hair is nicer at Disney (must be Disney magic ! I do like ponytails at Disney b/c of the heat and all the rides. I usually wash my hair at night in the shower at Disney, blow dry the roots with a diffuser, then sleep with a satin pillowcase on my pillow I bring from home. In the morning I ponytail, but my hair is NEVER frizzy like it can get at home, and my curls actually look nice. My current products are Loreal EverCurl shampoo and conditioner (sulfate free), Shea Moisture leave-in conditioner, Loreal EverCurl cream gel, and Suave Professionals Curl Mousse. All the products are extremely light weight and don't weigh the hair down at all.

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.
Have you tried the Loreal EverCurl line? That stuff is amazing! I have really thick hair and always had so much trouble getting tangles and knots out in the shower. The Loreal stuff works so well, my hands glide right through it! Their cream gel is amazing too, never stiff but keeps the frizz off and curls look great. I use the Shea Moisture leave-in (found in the ethnic/multicultural section at Target) and it works so well.

If I wear a ponytail in Florida humidity I end up with a 2-3" ring of frizz floating around my head regardless of how long my hair is at the time.
I need to go with at least 2 ponytails, braids or just looking like some strange frizzy beast.

I love the John Frieda Full Repair FlyAway Tamer for all the little frizzy baby hairs that tend to pop up in all that heat and humidity. It's like a clear mascara, but doesn't make your hair hard, sticky or gooey where you use. I use it almost every day of my life and can't imagine not having one in my bag at all times now

This is the product by the way:
