I have shoulder length thin hair. If left to dry naturally the front is wavy and the back is curly. Sometimes it’s a cute bohemian look but most the time it just looks straggly.
My typical routine is to blow dry then curl under in sections with a large barreled curling iron. This summer has been so hot and humid that within minutes I have a mishelved poof. Any suggestions on a method that would include heat styling while working with my natural hair that can withstand the humidity?

This time of year, I avoid going for overly straight styles. As you’ve noticed, they just end up looking frizzy or messy because of the humidity. I have all together given up on doing a nice blow dry – I either let my hair air-dry (as much as possible), or do a very rough blow dry (we’re talking head upside-down) just to remove all the moisture (not worrying about the appearance). Then I curl it in vertical sections with a large-barrel curling iron (you would need to use a smaller iron since your hair is only shoulder length). This way, when you go outside and the frizz comes, it at least looks like it kind of goes with the beacy-curl look, rather than messing up a nice smooth style.
