Default Hair frizz problem!

So I have wavy curly hair, and I can style it the way I want it and everything, but I can't go out with it down at any time of year without it frizzing and getting messed up. Even the slightest breeze in summer makes it go huge! My styling stuff doesn't prevent this from happening and neither does hold hairspray.
And this is the UK so it's always kinda breezy.
Help!

What are your hair properties and what is your current routine? Are you using enough leave in conditioner and firm hold gel? Hairspray is not the best idea, it's very drying which worsens frizz.

I am also in the UK and have damaged porous hair. I get best frizz control from conditioners containing natural oils plus Umberto Giannini Curl Friends jelly, products are applied to very wet hair as per the Curly Girl method. I walked up to the top of a hill on a breeze day a few weeks ago and came home with hair tidy enough to go out that evening!

My hair is incredibly thick and can get quite dry pretty easily, and also it's blonde (I have a feeling that it wouldn't look so frizzy if it was darker, could be wrong though).
I wash and condition it at night then style it, I'll sleep with it like that then in the morning it looks just how I like it. But it's just ruined in one slight breeze when I go out, and I don't know what to do about it.
What products would you recommend for this problem?

What is your full routine including products and what are your hair properties? We can't help if you give vague answers.

Goldwaves, what Firefox is talking about are hair properties: porosity, width, density, elasticity. You'll need to determine those in order to choose products wisely and care for your hair more effectively.

You can read about those here: Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics
and here
Curly Hair Tips, Styles & Products - NaturallyCurly

You can try to determine them on your own. There are also hair typing services available by Live Curly Live Free and Komaza.
