It would help a lot to know your hair properties: low to high porosity, fine to thick strands, low to high density. That helps us all pin down what your hair is like and you can get better recommendations from people with similar hair. The Newbie forum has sticky threads with this info.
The main thing that will help your hair is balancing moisture (through deep conditioning, co-washing, etc.) with protein (through styling products, protein treatments, etc.). Some people's hair hates protein. Most people benefit from figuring out the balance for their own hair. Frizzy hair can happen at either end of the balance - too much moisture, or too much protein, or just not enough of either. Again, knowing more about your hair's properties will help people help you.
Just a note, from one who has experienced it: those baby hairs might be new growth, which is a good sign. I freaked out when I saw mine, but up close they have tapered tips, which means new growth instead of breakage.
I like argan oil on my hair ends, but my hair hates most heavier oils like olive oil... My hair is low porosity. So if your hair was also low porosity, we could be on the right track. But if your hair is high porosity, what works for me probably wouldn't work for you.
