Question about frizz

So, today is my first day of the CG routine, and already I'm loving it. Last night I got a trim and washed with a clarifying shampoo, then put some conditioner in. I applied a leave in condish to the length of my hair, CK and some gel and then plopped overnight. I have never been able to let my hair air dry because it's always just a big frizzy mess in the morning, but this morning when I woke up and took my hair down out of the t-shirt, I had beautiful, clumpy defined curls. I left it down (it was still just a tad bit damp) and put on my makeup and by the time I was ready to do my hair, the front and sides were frizzy. I used some water to scrunch and it took a bit of it away, but it's still has a bit more frizz then I like. Do any of you deal with frizziness like this and recommend a product to use? I'm 3A, and I have fine hair that tends to get weighed down if I'm not careful. I can't use leave-in condish on my roots, or my hair will be flat. Should I try just a bit on the hair in front next time, staying away from my roots just to see if that does the trick?

Thank you all so much for your tips and advice, you've been extremely helpful!

    Frizz is a normal side effect of the beginning stages of CG. The usual cause of frizz is lack of moisture. Trying more leave in should help. Always keep leave in away from your scalp.
    Here is a thread on frizz. Pay special attention to the 5th post.

    Another common cause of frizz is using humectants (like glycerin) in high humidity.
    Good Luck.
