    I actually use gel to get rid off most of the frizz. Gel sticks all the hairs together. Gel makes your dry hair look the same as when it was wet, it definitely eliminates some frizz for me.

    Everyone has different prefences, but I actually like gels that give me lots of crunch. When my hair's dried, I scrunch out the crunch and I have beautiful, bouncy curls that are VERY soft.

    I never thought of doing that .. with the gel. I will definitely try that. I think that'll do wonders..
    Will frizz serums actually help with my frizz problem or will it look weird with the gel?

    If not, should i put before I put on the gel.. or after my hair is dry ?

    Im sorry i just have so many questions .. as this is all new to me..

    I can't tell what your hair properties are by looking at them, but it looks like you have a 3B curl pattern.

    Most anti frizz serums are chock full of -cones, so that might not be a route you want to go down. A good leave-in (for me the better the moisture the more lacking the frizz) with a gel that works for you will probably work. Plopping while your hair is wet might also keep the water from stretching your curl so it retains shape without gel.
