Whenever I have had the most frizz is because 1. I have had my hair out for a while (e.g. wash-n-go, twist out, braid out, bantu knot out etc) and 2. my hair wants moisture.

I will either co-wash my hair or make sure I spritz it really well and apply my leave-in

Another thing I found out is that my hair just does not like me playing around with my curls. When my hair is dry I try to not touch it because that is just asking for frizz. I know there are some hair serums people use but I honestly am not the best person to ask about that as I do not use them. My spritz and leave-in always seems to do the trick.

To me MOISTURE MOISTURE MOISTURE is the answer.

I recently added Aloe Juice which my hair loves but I know you said your hair is not too keen on that. Using oils after spritzing seems to help some as well.
