My hair curls when I scrunch it...Put gel in my hands and push the hair up toward the head, squish it in my hands; but this only works if your hair is curly by its nature, I think.

I joke about it with my kids but it is almost always true that if my hair feels good and soft and silky when it's dry and styled, it is a frizz bomb.
