I really like the volume as well...and it seems to go all the way back (you know how sometimes just your very front hair get's volume and the minute you do a side view it's all over?)
I actually like it..true it's got a more wavy beachy look but I think it looks a lot better than what you've indicated!
And yeah for no frizz!!!! Maybe just switch it up a bit? You might be on to something with the CK!
