I have a lot of curly hair. My straps will not stay in place. The back strap always ends up on top of my head and it makes my eyes water and puffy

There's more than one "Phillips Nose Pillow"..
are you using this mask

with either the cushion under the nose or the nasal pillows?

If so, you may need a smaller frame if you can't tighten the back strap anymore. I had similar issues and going to a smaller frame really helped the overall mask stability.

If any of your straps slip or slide, just put a small bit of Velcro (the scratchy side not the smooth one) in the middle of the offending strap. The Velcro tends to help keep your strap in place with no more slips or slides.

the scratchy side dose not touch your hair right. I have the same problem, long thick curly hair, if i can keep the back strap in place , i may sleep better. I tried a bobby pin, but it i had to cut it out of my hair.

Try one of those clips that has the slight bend in the middle and just opens and closes by pushing it one way or another. I think a bobby pin would be too thin unless you have those really thick ones and use a couple of them. A barrette may also work if the strap is thin enough, but may be uncomfortable if you sleep on it.
