Freeze hair's appearance when wet?

My hair looks so much nicer when it's wet! The waves are stuck together and the flyaways haven't popped up yet, and I wish there was a way to keep it like that! I'm currently using Tresemme Perfectly Undone conditioner with Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee raked in after I rinse out the conditioner. My hair still ends up a a poofy mess! How can I freeze my hair's look when wet?

Here are the photos! Closer up is dry and feels rough until I sleep on it. 2nd day curls look much better, but I don't want to deal with day 1. 
Hi Dawn97, If you want to "freeze" the appearance of wet hair you can try two things: 1. Try the LOC method. That means you apply a leave-in conditioner, oil, and cream. Anytime I do that the oil never lets my hair dry properly, so it looks kind of wet. Be sure to apply everything to wet hair. I'm not exactly sure that it will work, because everyone's hair is different, but it's worth a try. 2. Use a hard defining gel. This will mean crunchy hair, but your hair will look "wet" sorta. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend going for the "wet" look. Fluffy, slightly frizzy hair is beautiful and more natural looking. Most people are going for the fluffy frizzy look these days, so I say embrace it! If you're dealing with poofy hair, just stop brushing and combing it and you will see instant results. Good luck!
