    So are you CG? If so, the HE conditioner is definitely not CG, so you might have build-up. Also, I would diffuuse when your hair is wet, and then finish by airdrying. If I diffuse when my hair is too dry, it gets frizzy.

    The cyclopentasiloxane in the HE conditioners is actually a silicone that's one of the hardest to wash out. Definitely stay away from that one.

    alright, thanks :) i used nexxus this morning and followed everything in my routine up through 3. then i diffused for a little but...i got a nice aura of frizz around my hair. i tried to mat it down with gel, but it still looks bad :/

    I know someone said to diffuse right away to eliminate frizz but for me, that has the opposite effect.

    I need to put in my product then let my hair air dry for at least 30 minutes (longer if possible) then I diffuse for like, 2 minutes, literally for some volume. I have to do this no matter what products I use or I get horrible frizz and no curl definition at all, yet I cannot skip the diffusing part of it or my hair is too flat on top.

    Try that and see if doesn't help some, since I see that you tried diffusing right away and got a halo of frizz..

    Good Luck!

    maybe try combing in some CK before adding your gel. Works for me as far as combatting frizz. Even in the humid summer months!

It inhibits frizz and adds shine.

    I hear ya! I changed up my routine today and have WAY less frizz.
    Unfortunately, I've never used this combo before so I don't know if it's the clarifying shampoo, the CK, the Boots, the JoiWhip or diffusing. :roll:
