help! need a good anti-frizz priduct...
i've been battling frizz more recently then ever...i dunno if it's just my routine or products or what. here's my routine;;

1. shower and condish cg style with either nexxus humetress or he hello hydration
2. distrubute aussie anti frizz cream + leave in conditioner and ag re:coil through hair and scrunch
3. scrunch he body envy gel through hair, cg style.
4. air dry
5. come back a little later and diffuse a bit

So are you CG? If so, the HE conditioner is definitely not CG, so you might have build-up. Also, I would diffuuse when your hair is wet, and then finish by airdrying. If I diffuse when my hair is too dry, it gets frizzy.

yes, i am. and oops, didn't know that...guess i'll stick with nexxus :). and i only leave for maybe a half hair's still pretty wet

The cyclopentasiloxane in the HE conditioners is actually a silicone that's one of the hardest to wash out. Definitely stay away from that one.

alright, thanks :) i used nexxus this morning and followed everything in my routine up through 3. then i diffused for a little but...i got a nice aura of frizz around my hair. i tried to mat it down with gel, but it still looks bad :/

I know someone said to diffuse right away to eliminate frizz but for me, that has the opposite effect.

I need to put in my product then let my hair air dry for at least 30 minutes (longer if possible) then I diffuse for like, 2 minutes, literally for some volume. I have to do this no matter what products I use or I get horrible frizz and no curl definition at all, yet I cannot skip the diffusing part of it or my hair is too flat on top.

Try that and see if doesn't help some, since I see that you tried diffusing right away and got a halo of frizz..

Good Luck!

maybe try combing in some CK before adding your gel. Works for me as far as combatting frizz. Even in the humid summer months!

sorry, but what is CK?

Curl Keeper - it is made by a company called Curly Hair Solutions. You can purchase it on Curlmart on this site.

Curl Keeper is actually intended to be used alone as a styler, but most people here use it in small amounts as a substitute for serum, under other stylers. It inhibits frizz and adds shine.

I hear ya! I changed up my routine today and have WAY less frizz.
  • (1) Washed with Elucence clarifying shampoo (first time in ages:have been cowashing or no-pooing)
    (2) Elucence Moisture Balance Conditioner
    (3) while soaking wet, CK, Boots, JoiWhip
    (4) Plopped 15 min
    (5) Diffused to 90% dry (usually only til 75% dry)

Unfortunately, I've never used this combo before so I don't know if it's the clarifying shampoo, the CK, the Boots, the JoiWhip or diffusing. :roll:

i'll try something like that...but i'd need subtitutes. sigh...the reality of being 13 with a limited budget :/
