My hair gets especially poofy at near my ends and I was wondering how to tame it :( I usually don’t wash my hair everyday (try and do it every second of third day) so I’m not sure why it’s getting so dry at the ends and poofing out. The top of my hair lies flat and can get fairly greasy if unwashed for a couple days, but I don’t want to wash it becasuie it makes my ends even more tangled and dry sometimes. It may be the shampoo I’m using, or the water in my shower because I just had a trim.

The same happens to me! I find that if I put conditioner on the ends and avoid the roots, they stay relatively flat. Otherwise, I would just wet my hair and blowdry it flat.

I might try using the hot oil treatments I’ve been hearing so much about, or go to my stylist next time I get my hair cut to ask about dry ends :) Last time I washed my hair I only applied conditioner to my ends and used more than I normally would and it’s looking a lot healthier.

I have struggled with poofy hair my whole life too. It's so frustrating, because when you comb it right after a shower and it's so smooth, it makes you think it will stay that way when it dries. I didn't see a real change in my hair's "poofyness" till I started using jojoba oil as a leave in.

All I do is wrap my hair in a towel for 15 minutes and then take it out to comb it. Then I take my jojoba oil (bought it at a local health food store for like $8, the golden kind because it's unrefined and jojoba oil is similar to our hairs natural sebum) and I only put about 2 or 3 drops in my palm, rub them together and spread on the ends first then up the hair. This seems to have helped my poofyness disappear! Also I also put it in twist hairstylezz  and after awhile when it absorbs in, it's super soft. But be sure not to over oil!

hope that helps!:)
