    Making short hair lay down....

    Hey ladies,
    Especially with those with AA hair. I am loving my new short hair cut, the only real problem I have in that the hair on the very back of my head near the nape of the neck sticks out. I have tried gel & I wrap it every night. But, it still just wants to be stubborn & it won't lay down. I just got a relaxer & trim, so I know that's not the problem. Any suggestions?

    Have you tried a very strong hold pomade? For what you need, that might work better than a gel.

    I put a bit of gel on my hair while it is wet and before I wrap it, then briush it down in the way I wear it...I swear by Dudley's conditioning gel it leaves it soft and it lays down nicely

    Thanks ladies, I actually combined both suggestions & had good results! I wet down just the part that was being stubborn & then added some really strong extra strength gel & then smoothed it down with the back of my comb. It worked really well! I still need to invest in a really good strong pomade though.
