I know someone said to diffuse right away to eliminate frizz but for me, that has the opposite effect.
I need to put in my product then let my hair air dry for at least 30 minutes (longer if possible) then I diffuse for like, 2 minutes, literally for some volume. I have to do this no matter what products I use or I get horrible frizz and no curl definition at all, yet I cannot skip the diffusing part of it or my hair is too flat on top.
Try that and see if doesn't help some, since I see that you tried diffusing right away and got a halo of frizz..
HG Combos: Aubrey Organics MM and Giovanni L.A. Hold Hair Spritz when dry (I gave up gel completely and I have never been happier!)
- Biotera Leave In OR Biotera Curl Cream under the Giovanni Hair Spritz
Method: Air dry for 20 to 30 minutes, then blow dry the under sections for about 5 minutes for volume.
2/3 mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color for gray, NOT CG, regular S&C 3x a week. I hate crunchy hair or using too many products. Love my hair now!
