hi all curlies out there! I'm really enjoying browsing the forums and learning so much from all of you :)

I decided to post today rather than just browse because I have questions and some I am not finding answers to after doing a search. One of them is about putting gel and/or products in. y is it that most (from what I've read so far) put gel in immediately after showering and before "plopping" ? Does the gel work better that way? and wouldn't it be harder to distribute as hair clumps together when sopping wet? I'm a little confused.

Also, as far as frizz do you know if it is a protein concern or the result of having high porosity in the hair? I don't use a lot of protein per say but some of my conditioners and leave ins do have trace amounts in them. My hair frizzes more as it dries. Should I cut out protein all together? or maybe even try a PT to see how it reacts?

thanks for your feedback and sorry for the length of this post!!
