Frizz control help

Someone give me a little "frizz control 101." Since I live in a tropical climate (hot and humid year round), I was told that products containing glycerin would help. However, that causes frizz and flyaways as well. How can I counteract that? Thanks!
Using a gel or custard type product will help with frizz. Also using a hydrating conditioner for your hair will work wonders.
I think what causes the frizz is not humidity alone but rather the high temperature. I have noticed that my hair frizzies when I sweat. I would use a conditioner that has a form of oil in it as I have seen it keeps my hair more clumped but it kinda makes my curls feel sticky but that could be my gel that has humectants in.

I use deva curl one condition conditioner.. and leave a little bit in instead of rinsing all out. It's said you can do the same with any botanical conditioner.. I also don't use harsh shampoo in my hair any longer.. Can use botanical conditioner in your hair as a cleanser as well.. Leave some in.. While your hair is wet from the shower comb thru it with your fingers.. No need to use brushes afterwards either, that can cause frizz and breakage. Scrunch your hair up & squeeze sum water out. After the shower use a good gel and use a good amount.. is best to let air dry unless maybe using a diffuser.. But i still have best results with air drying.. Once your hair is dry go through it and scrunch it some more and it will get very soft. For more detailed info.. I got my info from reading Lorraine Massey's the curly girl handbook.. is full of helpful information.

What styler do you use? Something as simple as a good gel (e.g. the Ouidad Climate Control one) could do the trick

I use the wave hard rock gel from wella, just to use it up. It has a soft hold imo and now my hair gets longer. I must have reached apl when curly. Usually hard hold gels dry my hair out. The weird thing is that while wet I can see the stray hairs. It can't be breakage because they get longer. I don't rake my gel in though as my curls stay wavy if I do compared to ringlets that I get if I scrunch and squish.

I do everything upside.down if that helps.

True I want to try Ouidad climate control soooo bad. I live in a place with very low dews that fluctuate.
