Which techniques and or products have you tried in your CG journey so far for combating frizz? Maybe we could give you suggestions. Also, what's your current routine?

For un-CG suggestions, you might want to try Tigi Catwalk or *Moroccan Oil. (It's mostly silicones, little oil, but it helped with frizz when I wore my hair straight.) How prone you are to buildup is highly dependent on your properties. And you might not need to clarify as often as you think.

Also--yes. If they're baby hairs maybe smoothing gel would help. I have baby hairs and I smooth them down with KCCC at the end of styling.
