Right? its just a bad hair day, and despite doing the same things you've done before - frizz happens. Frustration.

    :neutral:I agree. I always get some frizz which I attribute to my hair texture, but on some days I get more frizz than on others, despite using exactly the same products/routine. Mystifying!:confused:

    I blame the weather. Last few weeks were just absolutely disgusting in New York (I'm talking dews at 70, humidity at 86% at 7am). I found that Curl Keeper helped, but no matter what I did I had frizz.

    My hair is 50% frizz on a good day! But I think I like the frizz a little. :)

    sometimes I rather have some frizz than no body and texture. I dont like when my hair looks too "producty" and close to my head. I live in NY too. If we can survive with our hair here, we can survive anywhere-LOL

    well ive had fizz my whole life, and ive come to love my fizz. my man loves my hair nice and big, he still cant get over how much volume ive got n loves it. so ive too came to love my fizz and embrace it. i tend to work with it not against it. for example, when its not that fizzy, ill wear it out, if only a part of its fizzy then ill braid it some how, if the whole things really really fizzy, (like today) ill try to settle it, if it doesnt work ill just chuck it up in a bun.

    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.

    At least you have some days without frizz. In two years here I have never obtained that. I am finally embracing my huge frizz.:flower:

    Myrna, I'm thinking you're right :glasses2:. My hair started frizzing this summer, from one day to the next. I'm in South Florida, so humidity is a MAJOR factor right now, and it's pretty frustrating!

    Some changes I've made is now I apply my hair products when my hair is sopping wet (when it's not as humid, I don't do that because I get more volume when I wait a bit to apply styling products). Lately I've been experimenting too--when my hair is soaked just as soon as I've finished showering, I immediately apply a quarter-sized amount of plain jojoba oil and comb it through. Then I've been applying some leave-in, then a styler, followed by a gel for hold. About an hour later, I apply a pea-sized amount of pomade for shine, moisture sealing, and breaking any crunch.

    Normally, what I've described above would be too much product for me, as I have very fine hair that tends to go limp pretty easily if I put too much in it--I generally like to use 2 products MAX. But I have found that with humidity, I seem to need a bit more of everything, and adding some more products to the mix has seriously helped tame the frizz.

    I know you're worried about leaving in too much conditioner at the crown, but you should still experiment--it may be just the solution you need for now :angel5:

    I lived in NY for 36 years, and never had frizz until I moved to FL. Never thought about dewpoints, hard water, etc. Now it's a daily battle of wills between my hair and me, especially since I have a jones for the beach. (Well, if I'm going to be stuck in this place, might as well enjoy its best feature! : )

    So I agree with Myrna: into each curly's life, a little frizz must fall. (With apologies to HW Longfellow)
