If you want very little volume I'd suggest you use products with a lot of hold. That means a hard hold gel and not mousse. Totally Twisted Gel is not a strong enough hold for me personally and I like to use the Set Me Up gel instead. You'd probably want to use a more moisturizing conditioner than the Herbal Essences ones too because the more moisturized your hair is, the more its going to lay down flat and not frizz up. Have you tried the curly girl method?
