Frizz; hate it or don't mind it?

Okay, I am curious of what you guys think of frizz. Is it okay with some, don't care about how much you have or none is allowed because it looks nasty??

I personally don't mind some frizz. It can actually make the hair look a bit more natural to me (not lots of it though). Darn hard to get rid of ALL the frizz too, so maybe I am just being nice to myself.

I am indifferent to it. I don't get it a lot (mainly if I airdry with a conditioner and products that are too light, or touch or scrunch wet hair, or diffuse too much.) Mostly my hair is heavy and weighs down without much frizz. A little frizz is natural though and it doesn't bother me - I hate overly sculpted, crunchy looking hair that is avoiding frizz by loading on product a lot more than I hate frizz.

I don't mind a little frizz either. Here in Texas, with our wind and humidity, a bit of crown and canopy frizz is pretty much inevitable. Mind you, I'm not about to walk about with my head looking like something a cat coughed up, but I think a little frizz looks okay. It makes my hair look soft and natural, which is definitely preferable to the ramen noodle look any day, imo.

I hate my hair when it frizzes, but a little is ok. It's damp here so often that it's almost impossible to avoid, unless I don't put my head out of the door!

I'm having a very bad hair day, and I'm not sure why, so don't feel positive about my hair at all today - it could partly be the weather. The frizz is just making me feel worse.

But I think it's true that we notice it more on our own heads than on others. Hair is so important to self-esteem.
I think that to be totally frizz free is impossible :P I don't mind a little, but when it goes POOF with frizz, I hate it.

Apparently I'm being tested on my statement above, because it's been raining all morning and I've got some major frizz going on. And now apparently it's supposed to rain for the next 10 days, so excuse me if I don't jump up and down and squeal for joy. Ask me how I 'really' feel about frizz again in 10 days. :P

Frizz really bothers me, especially since I don't have it that often. So when I do it is a sign of something being seriously wrong - usually a PJ experiment gone bad

Since going CG there are only rare times when I get any major frizz (like when I don't bring the right products when travelling or at the beach, or when I have the top down on the jeep).

I use vast quantities of gel and it seems to keep my hair under control (I'm one of few people here who doesn't care if I'm crunchy or have stringy or noodly hair. Makes me happier than having crazy, pouffy, out of control hair).

I do get halo frizz at times (coconut oil seems to cause that, but I love it anyway) and it doesn't really bother me at all.

Frizz is my enemy, but only a specific type of frizz that takes place A.)when I have used heat in one form or another to straighten my hair and then humidity (which we get lots of in MD) makes my hair try to revert back to curly; or B.) when I comb through or mess with my natural curls. I end up with a cottony fly-away puffball (picture a dandelion gone to seed, and there you go). Small amounts of frizz don't bother me when I'm going curly, and I usually can fix that by completely wetting the frizzy part and finger-styling the curl.

i voted "I don't mind some frizz. A little halo frizz can look cute even."

i can't say i find my halo frizz cute and i'd prefer it wasn't there, but i've learned to accept it, and i prefer it to the crunchy/wet/producty look.

I don't mind a little frizz, much prefer it to the 'wet producty look', I actually like hair to look a bit unkempt. I am just getting used to using gel, which is great as long as I get just the right amount.
