I just cant get it right!!

I have waist length 3a-3b (depending on the weather) hair. I also have to have bangs (sideswept) due to a large forehead. I have [B]ALWAYS[B] worn my hair up or back because I can never get it to look half way decent. I tried the gels but my hair always looks wet after it is dry. When scrunching to get out the crunchies, I get FRIZZ. I have tried many anti frizz products, all of which only leaves my hair looking greasy. Mousse doesnt do much of anything. Im tired of trying all these products and cant find anything that works. Has anyone found anything that works well with the high winds of spring and the high humidity of summer that I dont have to order online?? Any other ideas? Different styling techniques? Anything?!?! Please help me!
PS: My hair is SUPER thick, and even though my hair is really long I still get the triangle look happening.

I know you said that you don't want to order online but I would try Curl Keeper if you decide to order something.
It wouldn't hurt to give the Curly Girl (or no shampoo) method a try. It definitely helped me with my frizz!

Boy, it really depends on the gel (and the weather, and the position of the stars, and what kind of mischief Britney Spears has gotten into).

I'm finding that curl creams work really well...over a leave-in conditioner. Try to get one that doesn't have glycerine in it, since you mentioned having humid weather.

Some leave-ins worth considering:
CG: Kiehl's leave-in
Modified CG: Regis Olive Oil leave-in
Non-CG, but only has amodimethicone: Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine; Redken Fresh Curls Refining curls leave-in.

Curl creams:
CG: Biotera curl cream (Sally's); MOP-C curl cream (Ulta)
Non-CG: (lots of cones): Beyond the Zone Noodle Head curl cream (Sally's). Also, the above Redken Fresh Curls leave-in doubles as a curl cream (so don't need two products).

Mousse and gel doesn't work for me. I don't have as long of hair as you, but I do have frizzy curly hair and have found that using leave-in and curl creams help to reduce frizz significantly and when you scrunch out the crunch it usually leaves with soft curls.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

Thank you all for the replies.

I may try ordering CK and give that a try.

Thanks for the product suggestions, I may head into our sallys and look through their selection.
Jess, I did get your PM. Im still new to the board and figuring out how to work my way around. Ive been reading that a lot of stuff is out of stock at the mart. Do you know if CK is one of them because I dont want to try it and like it and then not be able to get more.
