Default How to control frizzy hair?

I'm a 2A and my hair tends to get really frizzy and gets in knots. How do I control it?

I comb my hair in the shower when it's full of conditioner to get out any tangles, then to dry, gently scrunch out the water with a microfiber towel or old T-shirt.

Terry cloth towels can cause frizz. Scrunching with your hands with your fingers closed can reduce frizz.

Humectants (particularly glycerin) in your products could cause problems, depending on your hair, the weather, etc.

Since I started doing the CG method, the levels of frizz in my hair have reduced dramatically, even in a tropical climate.

Cowashing, rinsing hair in cold water, using leave-in conditioners, scrunching, gently squeezing excess water with an old 100% cotton tshirt and not ruffling it with w/ a towel, not touching while drying, and doing some protein treatments (and finding a protein/moisture balance), have absolutely helped turn my fluffy, super frizzy tresses into much smoother s waves.

Oh yes, I don't ever brush my hair, especially when dry... but I figured out not to do that 10 years ago, unrelated to CG... haha. You can detangle w/ a wide-tooth comb in the shower while your hair is soaked in conditioner, but definitely no brushing/combing while dry!

I'm not 100% frizz free but there is a big difference.
