Thanks for the thoughtful response! I don't generally have a problem with frizz in the length of my hair and I never vary what I put in it--it's always Tress F/X from Ouidad. Really this question is about breakage/short hairs at my roots/scalp, which stick up and give me a "halo" of frizz. I'm hoping I can treat with protein or some other kind of DC, but was looking for advice for this specific problem.

The solution to the problem depends on the cause and your hair properties/ dew points. Some people have breakage and frizz because they need more protein, some because they need less protein, some need more penetrating oils to reduce porosity, some have build up so need to clarify, some are using too many potent humectants in the wrong dews.

It's like asking a doctor to prescribe a cure but only tell them one symptom, you would expect them to ask you more questions/ run blood work/ check your blood pressure or suchlike before they make a diagnosis. Then when they have a diagnosis they might write you a prescription or suggest the right lifestyle modification.
