Rainy weather

So where I live has been raining for the second week in a row and it's been warm so my hair has been so frizzy! I usually use Ouidad climate control gel but it doesn't seem to be working well. Does anyone have any suggestions for products I can add to my routine that will keep my hair safe from this weather? I'm sick of having bad hair days and I really don't want to use my flat iron.
Have you tried an anti-humectant such as a pomade? I use them to seal on wet hair.
No I haven't. Is there one you can recommend ?
20 Anti Humectant Products for Spring

3b/c ~ fine ~ medium porosity ~ low density ~ dyed dark red
No-Poo: Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Curl Nourish Shampoo
RO: Tresemme Botanique Nourish & Replenish Conditioner
Styler: Tresemme Extra Firm Control Mousse
Thanks for the link. I do use frizz ease hair serum but the original. I usually put my leave in on first, then my calming creme then the frizz ease serum. Am I do doing it in the wrong order? Also I have Ouidad climate control and humidity gel but I never know when to apply it.. first or last?
I'm not familiar with those products as I've never used them. I was thinking of something that contained lanolin, beeswax, etc. Something to seal against all of the moisture in the air. The product I've had great luck with here in the constant TX humidity is from Sally's - GVP Texture Taffy. It works really well for me. I apply it on wet hair as a sealer.
I'll have to check that product out. When you say you apply to wet hair as a sealer, you mean it's the last product you use on your hair?
Isn't frizz ease serum full of silicone?

You use it on wet hair? That's a great idea. How much do you use? Does it spread easily? And, last product after gel for example, or do you use it like an oil sealant, before gel?

Yes, I use it on wet hair as the last product. I can't say how it would work over a gel, as the first time I tried it, I didn't use gel. It worked so well, I didn't have to use gel, so I've never tried it over or under gel.
I have used a thick, waxy pomade to scrunch out the crunch, and that works well for me. I put a little bit between my palms and rub them together really well and then scrunch into the hair. This is just for the finishing touches, though. I think you would need some kind of sealant too, as they are discussing above.

Good Luck! I was shocked when it worked. The night I did it, I was tired, and nothing was going on the next day. I figured I could fix it if I had to by rewetting and adding whatever. I was shocked when it dried...more shocked the next day. I honestly figured it was some kind of celestial event. A fluke of some sort. Next wash day, I tried it again and it was just as good as gel, only my hair was softer. It was all quite by accident.
