Product to Keep Brushed Curly Hair Unfrizzy.

I've pretty curly hair. When it's wet, or left to dry naturally with gel/mousee, the curls are relatively tight.

If I brush it when it's damp or dry, I can loosen the curls considerably, getting a nice wavvy effect I like. The trouble is, when I do this, my hair is frizzy and bad looking.

Is there a product I can use to allow me to brush my hair to get it wavvy/straight without the frizz and without the need to blow-dry?

And what products are out there that reduce the amount of curly hair shrinkage?

Thanks ;)

    Sounds like you might want a product with some weight to it, maybe a cream product like the Curl Junkie creams or [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/CURLS-Whipped-Cream-p-883.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curls-Whipped-Cream]Curls Whipped Cream[/buylink] or Souffle. You might want to try using a good leave-in conditioner as well, which can help smooth the frizz. Welcome btw. :)

    thanks for the tip. on a side note: can I use regular hair condition in the place of a leave-in formula??

    also how do I add my picture to side of my posts?

    Alot of folks do use regular conditioner as a leave -in or either just lightly rinse out their conditioner, leaving some in. Personally, I can't take too much leave-ins. Makes my hair sorta droopy.

    To add your AV, go to your profile and look at the bottom.

    My hair always looks frizzy if I brush it. Sometimes I can get by wth finger-combing and it doesn't look too frizzy if I have enough gel in it.

    It's really hard to prevent brushed hair from going frizzy.

    Have you tried using a pick, instead of brushing?
