Naturally Fuzzy, Curly Hair, Only On Top?

천연 반 곱슬머리 anyone?
Some people have this really nice natural curls.

Some unlucky people have this really ugly curl & fuzzy hair, ONLY on the front
(right above your forehead, where everyone can see)
or on the TOP layer of hair
and all the other parts are either striaght/ or little curly.

People call this 'half curl' / 반곱슬
and its worse then having full curl or having striaght hair.

it's basically the worst natural hairstyle a person can have.

is anyone else halfcurl like me?

those straightening gels NEVER work on half curl hairs.
and the hair becomes like a LION's MANE after walking around the city for few hours.

how does everyone else deal with this?

    I totally understand what you're saying! I'm like that, my under-layer of hair is like nice and straight and such but the top parts were all frizzy and curly and horrible!

    I somewhat sorted out the main problems though by getting a lot of my top layers of hair thinned out A LOT! That way when blow-drying or straightening I only need to do the top parts of my thinned out, shorter hairs and it's all good after. I also do a deep-conditioning mask every 1-2 weeks to restore moisture otherwise the frizz gets worse.

    Get your hair thinned out and you'll find it'll be a lot more easier to manage the frizzy parts.

    I have it too, no matter what happens they are always there, it's so annoying! but i don't just have it near my forehead, it's spread out every where image ! i really want to get rid of it (maybe without thinning my hair though...)

    Ahh. Definitely. Straightening and curling my hair is really annoying too =__=; I wish my hair was just naturally curly or straight not in between.

    OMG my hair is like that. i never knew that there was a name for this.
    The top layer of my hair is straight but the bottome is kinda wavy.

    I usually use leave in conditioner, then anti friz and straighten gel. Then put hairstray in while I'm straighten it.
    It works most of the day....well about 9 hour.

    Aah, I have 곱슬 머리, too. It used to be really bad, exactly like a lion's mane - it was really frizzy and would start rising at the ends so my head would look like a triangle. I did the magic straight perm for a couple of years, but I got really sick of it and I haven't done it for about two years now. Now I use jojoba oil/olive oil while I condition, then leave the conditioner in for about 20 minutes before washing it out. (My favorite conditioner for my hair type is probably the Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Conditioner - I know everyone says light conditioners like Dove for Asian hair, but the Restoratives works really well, and my hair always comes out looking normal image ) Then I put in anti-frizz serum, and I dry my hair carefully. You can try straightening it, too, I guess ... I'm not too sure about the damage, though.

    Also, I only wash my hair every other day - by the second day my hair is a lot more manageable and smooth.

    I have it + it is the absolute worst. i had the biggest, most boofiest hair around. . . + now i get it straightened once a year and constantly give it treatments. i mean the roots grow back curly, but i just have to put up with it otherwise i straighten it at home.

    I have hair like that too, but instead mine is the inside of my hair. The top is pretty staight. It was so annoying when I was young and my hair would just be a big poof. Thank goodness for ceramic and tourmaline straighteners! =]

    i used, sunsilk "straightening" shampoo and it seemed to calm down my hair after I slept on it. You would think that since I slept on it, anything would calm it down, but sometimes it can make it worse.

    now i just have to straighten my hair, and i don't like getting magic straights since it makes the hair stick flat on my face.

    i hate my front hair curls. they look so out of place. i tried flattening them but they don't work because they're too thin and i don't want to burn them off. on good days they're flat or hide in my hair but on bad days it looks like i have horns

    But they share the same sky-
    One sky, one destiny.
