Default So how do I tame the frizz?!?

Since it is hot outside and the humidity is starting to kick in, my frizz decided to kick it too. Now that my hair is completely dried and I scrunched out the crunch, what can I do to calm down some of this frizz?

If my hair fuzzes out after it's dry, sometimes a spritz of spray gel helps.

Hiya. Lately Ive been finding it helps to add a small amount of gel after my hair is all dry, if its started to frizz. It seems to glue it all together, then I scrunch gently once the gel dries.

Might not work for everyone, but its working for me so far

I coat my hands with a small amount of something before I scrunch out the crunch. Just about anything works well - AVG, or the same gel I used, or a molding paste like SIF or LOOB, even a small amount of conditioner. The trick is to USE it to scrunch out the crunch. If you try to smooth it on AFTER you've done this step, it may actually cause frizz b/c the dried hair is going to stick to your hands and fluff up.

I take a small dab of a light gel and gently smooth over the canopy of my hair. I think Herbal Essences Totally Twisted gel works well on dry hair without getting sticky. I only use about a small pea-sized dab, though.

I squirt mine with a little bit of Tea tree oil blended w/water. Just a couple of spritzes after I scrunch out the crunch. Certainly not enough to wet it back down or even really get it damp. This really helps.

Once my hair frizzes, there's not a whole lot I can do to get it calmed down With my craptastic hair, if I start adding gels or creams to my hair, it begins to feel really producty.

However, frizz happens to me mainly in the heat & humidity, so I use Curlkeeper & strong hold gel. I comb the CK through wet hair, then smooth & scrunch in my gel, usually BRHG. This does a great job of keeping my hair frizz-free all day, even if I'm touching it a lot!

What is BRHG? I would love to know. My hair has been frizz-happy. Almost to the point I put it up in a PONYTAIL.

CK is the best for rizz control.

Curl Keeper really is awesome, esp. in humidity. I'd give it a try! Also, I'll second the CK and BRHG combo. Gave me awesome hair last summer!

Well I thought that would solve my problem, but I have more frizz today.
