Default Products anyone?

The top of my head has a layer of frizzy kind of straight strands which contrast greatly with my natural 3b hair and I was wondering if anyone knew of any products that could possibly turn those frizzy strands back into curls! I am new on this forum and I would love to know if anyone could help! Thanks!

are you using a towel? if so thats part of the reason why. I use an old long sleeve t-shirt to dry it instead of a microfiber towel.

towels cause frizz, especially in curly hair.

if not try mixing a serum with a curl defining cream, not a lot. A little can go along way.

Towels and technique are really important.

As far as your product question, do you know your hair properties?? They are most important for choosing ingredients/products. Here's a link to help you with yours Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics Once you determine your properties look for folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.
