    Chick doesn't know what conditioner is... haha. Tried to fix it before the shot, but it was a lost cause.

    Now I've gotta tame it in post, but my usual techniques are gonna take forever. What would you do?

    I would recommend a reshoot. That's going to be really difficult and time-consuming to pull off in a way that doesn't make it look like "Lego hair".

    That is an adult woman, not a girl.

    Shave her head. That should solve it.

    I find the purple hair spot more distracting then the frizz.

    Here's what I've got so far, just using the liquify tool.

    Is the frizzy hair caused by actual hair condition, or is it a matter of the original file having been re-sized, and some kind of weird resizing artifact? I agree with limr as well; this is not a "girl"...and this is the second time within this week that you've used the word girl to refer to a grown-up,adult female; the other use of the word girl was in the wedding expo post you did recently. Maybe you missed Mayim Balik's recent Facebook video about how people ought to stop referring to grown women as "girls"?

    I don't have that option, unfortunately.

    The frizzy hair has nothing to do with file compression. That's how it was shot.

    You're probably right about the "woman" thing. I don't really think about it, and don't think it's a big deal. But I guess that stems from me not even seeing myself as a "grown up" so referring to my peers as such is kind of weird.

    It's always been a casual thing for me. "Guys" and "girls." But I guess it's something I should try to outgrow.

    Eh, unless we’re talkig in a formal setting, “girl” refers to a female of any age.

    The three females I’m currently sitting next to at work just told me they prefer to be called a girl because it makes them feel younger. I asked them their opinion in response to this. Their ages range from 25-45.

    The whole world just needs to stop reading into things so much, everyone is over sensitive these days.

    But the male equivalent of 'girl' is not 'guy' - it's 'boy.' Even the word 'guy' is used for a person who is past childhood. So the real equivalent would be posting a picture of an adult man and asking "how would you defrizz this boy's hair?" A simple test would be, if you wouldn't use 'boy' in that case, then don't use 'girl' for a woman, either.
