I just want the frizz out!

that's all. I don't want to reduce and loosen my curls all I want is to remove the frizz. What option is there ? And , no, I don't mean the keratin treatment. I tried the organic one and did nothing but make my hair frizzier. That was 6 months ago. I even thought of resorting to a chemical treatment I tried over two years ago, called frizz remover.. but the more I think about it the more I don't want to do that.

It loosens the curls but it DOES remove the frizz. I mean it really does.
There must be something out there that does remove the frizz... I like many curlies have tried so many products.. and there is a point where you just want something to just work for once! especially, after going through a streak of products gone bad...

Agh! Help , please?

Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
hair seems to be moody.
Does not seem to like oils
Does not like protein or too much?
Does not like rich products

So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.

    What worked for me to get rid of the frizz was more moisture. I became CG. I deep condition once a week. I use a good leave in. Actually I use a good conditioner as a leave in. Then I seal the moisture in with jojoba oil, so the moisture doesnt escape through out the day and creates more frizz. Then, I use my gel last. Dont touch it at all until its completely dry, just to scrunch out the crunch. Oh, and I switched to satin pillow cases. Now I can even go out on a rainy day and no frizz. I had 2 cousins, and my sister all change to this method. We are all frizz free now, about 90% of the time.

    Cold cold water to rinse out my conditioner....I'm highly porous, if I don't shut those cuticles I have a ton of frizz. Are you making sure you close your cuticles as well as seal in any moisturizer you use? This is an issue that can cause dryness and frizz for high porosity. Also, if you're not protein sensitive,sometimes protein treatments will clear any frizz I have away as well because as a natural high porosity (no damage, I'm just that high!) I use protein to fill in the holes in my cuticles.
    [FONT=&quot]Hair type: the back and sides have small spiraly curls, the top and front just wave like, "hi! how ya doin?"

    Condish: ElucenceMBC, HEHH, my kitchen mixes

    Moisturizer: mixed spritz of: H20, aloe vera juice, honey, EVCO, ElucenceMBC

    Curl Definer: H20 & a shake, my moisturizer mix.... or aloe vera/flax seed/ic fantsia gel if I'm not being lazy.

    Styles: wash-n-go, twists just curl up like my wash-n-go

    I think I am also very porous. Actually, today I did use left warm water but cooler to rinse out the giovanni 50/50 conditioner. I immediately applied morrocan oil.
    I will take your advice and try the cold, cold water to rinse out.

    Now, if your hair is really porous it sucks up oil, pretty easily right?
    As far as protein - how do you get rid of, if there was an overload?

    I'm frustrated with my hair, spending so much money and nothing seems to really work. If only hair could talk, like " hey, lady, I need moisture, cut the protein out " sigh..

    Thanks

    I have 3c hair and do exactly the same hairroutine and have no-frizz hair now. The trick is to apple moisture on souking wet hair, seal it with oil (i use a mix of castor, coconut and almondoil), apply a good gel for hold and comb to define the curls. I use a conditioner as leave- in and dont wash it out, but just let it airdry. Its important to not touch the hair while wet so the curls stays well-being-defined.

    I second the applying moisture to soaking wet hair. My hair was chronically frizzy, and I mean FRIZZ-Y. Now that I've started CWC method, I don't have hardly any frizz. It could be the products you're using- cones/no cones, protein filled/low protein, etc. I apply my leave-in to dripping wet hair, and then argan oil, and leave it alone until it's dry when I bun it and forget it.
