I am having somewhat of the same problem. My day 1 curls are always hard and crunchy because i havent found any products that i can use that my hair doesnt get frizzy unless it ends up crunchy. My 2nd day curls are still somewhat curly but they are crazy and frizzy and the only way i can wear them is pulled back 1/2 in a clip. I have been trying forever to figure out how to pull my curls out for a few days and havent had any luck
