I have really curly hair but really frizzy. How can I make it so it's not so frizzy?

I love my curly hair but it is also really frizzy.  Would layers help?  How do I make it less frizzy?

I have 3b hair as well. Here are a few things that help me:1. I sleep on a satin pillow case (you can get them at Walmart for like $5), because the friction between my hair and a cotton pillow case=extreme frizz.2. I use a gel called Eco from Sally's beauty supply. On amazon it is around $10, but at Sally's it is around $4. This gel works great because it defines my curls and keeps them from getting frizzy and sticking together. It also had argon oil to help keep your hair moisturized, instead of drying it out like a lot of gels. It is a bit crunchy at first, but after sleeping on it, it gets softer. I also use a leave-in conditioner called Hawaiian Silky which I also get from Sally's for around $6. This keeps my hair and scalp from getting dry, and works great in combination with the gel. 3. Whatever products you use, make sure you put them on your hair when it is wet. I never let my hair dry without any products in it, or else it's just a big, frizzy, unmanageable mess. 4. Do not comb/brush your hair while it is dry. Again, it will just cause a big, frizzy mess.5. Use a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates are harsh on everyone's hair, but especially on our curly hair. I use Cantu Shea Butter Sulfate Free Shampoo which is almost $14 on Amazon, but I get it at Walmart for about $6-$7.6. I don't know if this is something that it well known or not, but I recently have started to put my hair in a clamp before going to bed, and sleeping on it that way. I move a lot in my sleep, and even though I use a satin pillow case, my hair can still get frizzy by the time I wake up in the morning. I used to put my hair in a bun when I went to bed, but it didn't keep my hair from getting frizzy, and a lot of times my hair would get dents in it from the hair tie. Surprisingly, when you use a clamp, you hair does not form to it at all, and it has no dents.When I say I "put my hair in a clamp" I mean like this: http://tinyurl.com/khwkqb8I hope this helps, it's taken me a long time to find a routine that works!
