Conditioner only styling

I live in Las Vegas where it's super dry year round. The dew point lately has been in the 40's and that's higher than normal.
I have very fine, thin, colored, 3a-ish hair. I've tried more hair products than I can possibly name. I can't strictly co wash because my hair is too fine. Lately I've been washing once a week with Giovanni TTTT and conditioning with VO5 shea cashmere consist. The other days I've simply been using the VO5 condish only. I don't really use a LI because my hair is so fine.
Yesterday I tried using natures gate biotin condish to try conditioner only styling. I emulsified a pea size amount and raked it into pretty wet hair. I did that three times. Then I pixie diffused until 70 percent dry. My hair was fabulous. Awesome curls. The only problem was there was more frizz than I normally have.
So my question is, for those of you who do "conditioner only" styling do you ever use a gel or gelly over it to control the frizz? Then it's not necessarily "conditioner only" but I think it might have helped.
Yeah I use a gel over my conditioner. It really helps with not just hold, but for sometimes second day hair.
High Porosity, Fine, Thin Density, Low Elasticity
Co-wash, leave in, and gel: Alba botanica coconut cond., ogx mousse, &/or super wet look gel.

I don't use gel, but if I get frizz I use a little Jane Carter Nourish and Shine. I tend to get frizz if my hair dries too much while I'm still styling it. I've been styling with wet hands as of late, and it's helping.

I've never been able to accomplish it. Not without putting it up somehow.
