I realized that my hair was crunchy because I was adding gel the day before after I had already scrunched the water out. I put it in soaking wet hair yesterday and had better results.

However, the other day I tried the sandwiching thing and found with most other options, the minute I put water in my dry hair it frizzed like crazy.

I've also tried the method I read of wetting a micro towel and using that to scrunch water in my hair - still mega frizz.

I think you guys are right on the leave-in - I think it weighed it down a bit.

Any suggestions on how to get secon day with out being a big frizzball?
