frizz-free OR voluminous?

i've found it very difficult to get good volume without a little bit of frizz. usually i scrunch/shake my hair around a lot, which gives me great volume even with airdrying, but i can't quite escape the extra frizz that comes with it (although even if i don't touch AT ALL, i still can't get rid of all the frizz).

so which would you prefer, frizz-free curls that are kind of flat, or great volume with a little halo of frizz?

I voted great volume with some frizz. I can't stand having flat hair myself.

I'm the opposite, can't stand frizz in any way, shape or form. Hate volume so this was a no contest for me. I'm even reasonably happy to put up with stringy curls so long as there's no frizz.
I used to hate frizz but now I'm at a point where I would rather have volume, even if it means a little halo frizz. I try to get all the volume I can!!
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
I don't like flat and stringy so I have to choose volume with some frizz.Funny you should ask this question because I am sitting here with no frizz,kind of flat hair right now. I made the mistake of combing curlkeeper through my hair yesterday...big mistake,not as much curl but no frizz!

volume! Absolutely!
I voted for volume, I often flip my head over & shake hair at the roots to get some volume back, I don't like my hair to be crunchy or look wet. Also I am terrible for playing with my hair.

haha seems like i'm in the minority! although i guess by 'flat' i didn't think how 'flat'. i only opted for 'no frizz' cos i get so damned much of it, if i had the option not to i'd go for it! but now i think about it, i'd love volume with no frizz, is that an option?

Lots of volume w/ some frizz.

I don't think my hair is capable of being 100% frizz free unless it's soaking wet and sprayed with my favoriote 80's product, Stiff Stuff! And even then, I bet I would still get a little...
HG's: (I alternate)
DEP Sport Gel or B&A Gel
Naturalle Gel (used like CK - a ton in sopping wet hair and mostly air dry)
all used over a leave in

Method: Air dry 20 minutes, then blow dry for volume.

2/3 mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color for gray, protein sensitive but I still need it sometimes, glycerin-sensitive (I think) in high humidity, NOT CG, wash with regular S&C 2x a week.
I'll definitely take the volume with some frizz. I want bounce! The bounce will make up for the frizz. Flat hair is depressing. :P

Volume with a little frizz for sure.
With Volumax Gel I can get the volume with darn little (maybe no) frizz. Love the stuff.
I have finally realized I look my best when my hair tells me how it is going to fall, and I just make suggestions.

I voted no frizz, my hair has so much volume all by itself, it can't get much bigger!! haha!! If I could get rid of the frizz, it'd be perfect!!!!
I voted frizz and volume. Living in a humid place, frizz in unavoidable. There are a lot of people here who wear their hair frizzy and it looks nice.

Frizz free and flat. My hair has insane volume as is, I'm sick of it. :P

You can see it here, and if you do a search for it on the forum you will find at least a couple of threads about it. It was a little over a year ago when it was rather a hot item on the boards, so I tried it and had good results at first, but then it stopped working for me.
