I use CIAB as a frizz-prevention product - a serum. This is my go-to serum in cooler (low dewpoints) weather. When it gets really hot and humid (high dews), I prefer Curls Gel-les'c.
I scrunch in about a dime to nickel worth of product (depending on the length of my hair) right before diffusing. If I forget to use it, I notice. I will get surface frizz that I never get when I use one of these two products.
I don't find CIAB has any hold.
