Default Frizz help!!!!!

What products do you use to fight frizz? I'm just getting back on the cg bandwagon so any suggestions are welcome . I know everyone is using the other hair typing stuff more so I will include that too thick coarse highly porous .

Hi I have medium hair, fine-ish and coarse-ish, and it is thirsty although I have low-porosity. I had tons of frizz, and what I have found that really helped was a good styling cocktail (layering products) and using the super-soaker method as posted by Rudeechick. I still have some frizz, but it is getting less with every wash.

I can't say that my styling cocktail will help you, but there are some small things you can do, like using a curl-friendly microfibre towel or a t-shirt to dry your hair...and to not touch your hair after you place it, until it is completely dry.

I also "pineapple" my hair when I sleep, so that the curls stay off my pillow, and I use a silk charmeuse pillowcase to reduce friction. And I use the pixiecurl method of hair drying with a diffuser. All of these things have helped a lot to cut down on my frizz.

I still get some frizz after drying, so I use a tiny bit of super-hold gel, emulsify in my hands, and run over my dry hair...I use it to seal my ends too. It does help.

There are so many awesome articles here on techniques, products and helpful hints...if you check out the "Newbies" forum, on the top of the column, Wowohwow posted a sticky with tons of useful links for helpful techniques Check it out, you might find some solutions! Also check your hair for protein sensitivity - I know if I use protein, my hair hates it and gets super-frizzy ;p It might be anything causing your frizz, from the products you use, to your drying techniques, to the weather...you need to do some research! Good luck

Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
