So this is how big my hair gets after air drying it and wrapping it down with my silk scarf. I love fullness but i prefer my hair sleek. As for the summer I will lay off heat. I do find it pointless sometimes flat ironing my hair because it tends to slightly wave up on its own if its raining or humid outside. I use castor oil from time to time and I do take hair vitamins. My hair is naturally thick ,I just don't like to detangle or manipulate it when its this loud.
