I have coily hair. I'm unsure whether I'm a 4a, 4b, or 4c. I'm fairly certain I have a combination of these hair types. I have a problem with frizz. I have a 3 1/2 inch TWA. I can see/ feel tons of defined coils, especially when I part my hair. But many of my coils are covered in frizz. Its like extra hair that isn't clumping right. How do I better define my coils. I currently do wash and gos, either co washing on with a sulfate free shampoo. My daily routine is to spritz with water , then I use Lavish Curls curl refresher, then curl creme brule hair creme, and eco styler olive oil gel.
I just started using "Goddess Curls" from the Curls line as well.
Does anyone have similar struggles? What are some good ways to control frizz.

    Maybe the Curls line isn't moisturizing enough for you. I found that to be the problem with my hair. I loved the smell though. For extra moisture try putting a little oil in with your conditioner when you co-wash. I saw that method in another thread recently and I found it worked great when I used a lighter styler like creme brulee. Try a little oil with you poo too. I use safflower seed oil. It's light. olive oil would be great too but it made my scalp itch like crazy. What ever you have on hand should work.

    I have a bottle of Creme Brulee that has been in my cabinet for more than a year and is still half full. I had to mix it with my li (TJs Nourish and Spa) when I did use it to make it moisturizing enough. Eventually I stopped and realized that my hair prefers creamy conditioners as main moisturizers. I use a dime of hair milks type products to run over my twists before I take them down.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    how do you sleep wth your hair? if you use a normal pillow case try using a silk or satin one, that really helps to reduce fizz.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
