Default Wet with frizz

Lately, over the past few days, my hair has been very frizzy while it is soaking wet. It doesn't seem to get too much worse while it dries. But, when it's wet it has been getting very frizzy...I mean, just after I get out of the shower it looks fine, but as soon as I touch it at all to scrunch in gel or something, it's been getting very frizzy.

Any suggestions?

Are you doing CG?

I've already tried clarifying, twice now, and it doesn't seem to do any good. Actually, it's just getting worse.

Yes, I've been doing modified CG for two months now. Although, I still do shampoo with a clarifying shampoo every two weeks or so because my hair is very coarse and porus; everything tends to build up.

Are you plopping? I stopped using a regular towel and started using a large t-shirt to plop. This has helped me and I had the exact same problem. Also, you might add a bit of honey to your cond. rinse and use cooler water to rinse.

I've tried using honey before, but it makes my hair feel sticky, it won't rinse out well. I suppose it's because my hair is very porous.

I don't plop. I scrunch with a microfiber towel after applying gel and let it air dry. I don't think plopping would help, since I already have frizz before I would be plopping.

Today, my hair was very frizzy (getting worse) without even putting product in or even touching my hair.

Which products are you using? How long since your last trim?

I have the same problem and don't know what to do about it. Usually my solution is to use tons of leave-in until everything's smooth and the frizzies are gone. But now that it's summer, I can't do that because of overconditioning, so I just have to live with it.
I hope you find out what to do about it, then it might work for me as well.

Maybe the solution is as simple as adding more conditioner Your hair may just be thirsty. My hair is also porous so I use about 1/4 to 1/2 a tsp. total to my final conditioner and rinse.

That is *all* the conditioner you use?! That's so lucky, my hair will greedly drink up at least 2oz of condish, every single time. I would save so much $$$ if I could get my conditioner use down to anywhere near tablespoon, far less a 1/4 teaspoon. Anyway, I second this rec to use more conditioner, that has cut down on frizz for me, though I'm sure I'll never be rid of it entirely, even when my hair is wet, as I think it's intrinsic to my own particular hair type & texture. Since the frizz when wet is a recent occurence for you maybe upping your moisture level overall will take care of it very quickly.

I wouldn't be surprised if this extreme frizziness has something to do with the sulfate shampoo you mentioned using. Perhaps try a less harsh shampoo. . .

No, that is how much honey I use. I should have clarified (no pun intended). Sorry about that! I use about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of condish for my final rinse. My hair is greedy too!

Oh, OK. I was feeling really wasteful there for a minute!

I use both Aussie 3mm and Down Under naturals fortifying conditioner, I use several handfuls of each. I'll try using more though, and I'll give the honey a try again.

Did the honey work? If not, have tried using oil? I put almond oil into my hair today and the effect was amazing! Turned my frizzy hair into soft, clumpy, shiny curls!

No, but thanks for asking! It didn't help, and it still made my hair very sticky. I'm seriously considering cutting my hair really short...I'm just so frustrated with the whole thing!

I'm glad to hear that almond oil worked for you.

I haven't tried oil yet. I think that I will try and find some tomorrow and give it a try.

You might give this a shot -- it works better for me. Use the honey in a final rinse rather than mixing it with your CO or leave-in. I take about 2 teaspoons of honey and put it in a jar with a cup of hot water and shake til it's well mixed in. Then I add another cup or so of lukewarm water and shake. After I'm done rinsing out my conditioner, I pour it slowly over my hair and I leave it in, then continue with my leave-in and styler etc. It is never sticky for me. It gives me good shine & seems to enhance curl & help with frizz.

I had this same problem and somebody had said it could be the peg-hydrolized castor oil (which seems to be in everything I look at). I have definately found that if I steer clear of that ingredient, my wet with frizz drastically reduces. I don't even know what that ingredient is but I do know my hair dislikes it. Maybe you have the same issue?

Kikirose, I don't seem to have that ingredient in anything I use, but thanks for the advice!

RozettaStone, I will try that tomorrow.

I bought some olive oil and some ACV today, so I will also try those tomorrow.

I just hope something will help soon before I do something stupid like cut off all my hair.
