Why is my hair wet all day and is very frizzy even though I scrunch the gel out?

I think I'm a 2C. I get so few thick curls in my hair that the hair looks like I've just gotten out of the shower all day. And there is a lot of frizz surrounding it. The frizz is dry but the rest of the hair looks wet all day even though I scrunch and shake the hair free from the gel once it's dry.

I don't have the same curl pattern as you but probably your hair is too weighed down by the gel. You should try something lighter than gel. For products you should trial and error to see which works for you and your hair type. :)
What could I use instead then? that also helps with frizz?
