What have you been doing? What products are you using? How long? I think answers to some of those will help people with suggestions. (Sometimes I think you have to be patient too.)

I do the Ice Queen method, then I usually squeeze excess water out and then blot with a floursack towel. I scrunch/smooth in my mousse.

I cannot plop or even diffuse or I get frizz.

I also notice that even in the shower after I have squeezed the excess water out I have frizz/random stringy straight strands. I really think that is a sign of damaged hair.
