I think this might be causing some frizz, though I am still experimenting with it. Can anyone see anything in the ingredients that could be causing the frizz? Our dews have been in the 40s lately.

    I use this sometimes and like it. Have not found it to increase frizz at all but I do use gel over it.

    My hair is coarse and does have frizz by its nature.

    The cottonseed curl boost does seem to add a little bounce, particularly when using diffuser.

    Probably the sodium chloride.

    Hmmm...why would the salt lead to frizz, out of curiosity?

    sodium chloride can be drying on some. Also are you protein sensitive? The hydrolyzed wheat protein is pretty high on the list.

    I'm somewhat PS and think that this is why this particular product made me a greasy fuzz ball. Didn't know I was PS then though..

    I don't think I'm protein sensitive and my low poo and conditioners have hydrolyzed wheat protein in them so I don't think that's it. My hair almost feels gummy and frizzy which I find kinda odd.

    Gummy?? That sounds like you may not like that particular polyquat, and I've heard of acrylates having similar effects...

    Yeah, I looked back at the ingredients after I wrote that and wondered about the polyquat. Thing is, the mixture is fairly light and thin and doesn't give the impression of gumminess or heaviness like some things do.
