Flyaway Frizz :(

whirlyhairwhirlyhair Posts: 194Registered Users
No matter what I do, I always get flyaway frizz. No matter what product or technique, it just won't cut it through. I've done an egg/mayonaise protein treatment last night, followed by a DT, and an ACV rinse, and while my hair is very soft, a little bouncy, shiny, the whole nine yards... the flyaways still remain. I just don't get it! I tried hard hold gels and it still fails on me.

Yes, I've done sealing with coconut oil... But even that wears my hair down and makes it oily and stringy. And the pesky little flyaways still peek out. I'm so sad! I will be trying out aloe vera juice for sealing soon, so we'll see how that goes.

Anybody else having this issue?

    My only suggestion I can think of is to try a lighter oil which isn't as heavy and oily, such as grapeseed oil or safflower oil...I use grapeseed occasionally which doesn't weigh my hair down (granted, I don't use much, but my hair isn't super fond of oil)...hope that helps

    What's your daily routine? I used to cowash every day, but got horrible flyaways, so I only cowashed twice a week. Huge difference.

    Sometimes you may need to DC more than PT as well.

    I've noticed with a water filter, my hair is not as frizzy.

    I wash my hair every other day... Those wash days is me co-washing with the no-poo, and using the one condition as a rinse-out and leave-in. Then I use the Arc Angel gel (after I spray my hair with the Mister Right spray, of course) and I scrunch. I let it air dry, or occasionally use the diffuser. When it's time for bed, I pineapple my hair and that's when I can get the second day hair. Then after that, I do the same thing all over again.

    I cannot get third day and beyond hair because my scalp is very itchy and dehydrated. :-| I also have a water filter, so that can't be it...

    Yesterday was a great hair day, though. I have used the Arc Angel and thought, "I'm gonna use a second gel!" and drenched my hair with my old trusted L.A. Looks Sports gel on top of the Arc Angel. I went out with friends and once my hair dried, I SOTC, and was left with wavy/looser curls that were soft, shiny, VERY defined, and I had over half of less flyaway frizz! I think I may have found my problem... my hair needs ULTRA STRONG HOLD gel! I can't achieve it with just one gel, but two strong-holding gels to combine a maximum hold gel! :blob4:

    I still saw a miniscule amount of flyaway frizz, but it SERIOUSLY wasn't as bad as all the other days... Maybe if I use an affective sealant, along with the two gels, my hair can FINALLY look virtually frizz-free! :thumbleft:

    Am I the only girl using two different gels at once, though?!

    I have the same problem. do you use a regular towel? because I've noticed using a plain T-shirt or one of those curl drying towels really minimizes frizz. oils do nothing for my flyaways I started using mixed chicks leave in conditioner and tashodi curl enhancer and it works nice on frizz together!

    Maybe if you go no-poo (rather than low-poo) you'll have less frizz and your scalp will be more moisturized too.
