Wow, thanks, Korkscrew!
What has worked for me lately - only after good 1st day hair, I have to add - is detangling each individual curl (as needed), with my hands coated in Grapeseed oil.
If I have any curls that are completely flattened/frizzed, etc, I'll use some LI mixed with a tiny bit of water and coat the (former) clump. Sometimes I'll add gel, or LOOB, if it's particularly bad and needs major reshaping!
So that's the plan this far - curl by curl refreshing, no spritzing, and using mainly oil, sometimes condish.
Sometimes I'll use some flexible hold cone-free hairspray.
And if all else fails, I just put it up. Lol!
