I think that conditioner you are using has silicones, so that might be the culprit. I notice when my hair gets super frizzy and dry, I have usually used too much protein, had not enough moisture, or have simply used a conditioner that doesn't work well. Sometimes, though, gel can make hair really frizzy. and I see the ampro has a lot of protein. Maybe switching conditioners (I heard GVP Conditioning Balm is moisturizing!) and using a creamier, protein-free styler would help?

HTH!

My hair doesn't like to be styled with coconut oil, actually. I love it as a conditioning treatment and do that once a week or so, then rinse it out, but when I try to put it on my hair for styling, it looks GREAT at first... And within half an hour I have the worst case of frizzy flyaways imaginable. I'll be trying it again once I've found a good protein treatment, but in the meantime I've had to stay well clear. I wouldn't say it makes my hair seem dry, though. It looks moisturised enough, it just gives me a horrible puff of flyaways all over the place. Weird.
