    FSG. Yes those Deva products are nice. You might also need to leave in some conditioner. Have you see Waterlily's cowash videos? It gives you a good idea of how much she conditions her hair. But ultimately the waives I k ow who frizz get great results with flax seed gel. You can make it right at home.

    And look up Waterlily716 "co-wash" on YouTube.

    If your hair is that long and dry you may well need richer conditioners than the ones you mention, and/ or way more leave in conditioner than you are using at present. Longer hair tends to be damaged due to the normal hair aging process ('weathering') and this can lead to frizz.

    Beneficial ingredients for porous or damaged hair include coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides, 18-MEA and panthenol. You might consider styling with film formers like flaxseed gel or okra gel, limit or avoid the major humectants like glycerin, honey, propylene glycol and possible aloe vera. One Condition is absolutely loaded with glycerin IIRC.

    Have you clarified and chelated lately?

    We have similar properties- check out the products I use in my signature. I know a lot of people have polyquat issues, but I really really like the Bioterra cream and gel and get the least amount of frizz when I use them. I also like that I can get them at Sally's! Pixie diffusing really helps me, too. I use Yes To Carrots and Cucumbers, love both!
    2C normal/high porosity?, medium/coarse texture, lower density
    Cleanse: Pura D'Or every week or two, Yes to Cukes
    Conditioner: VO5 Kiwi Lime (LOVE!), Tresemme Naturals, YTC
    DT: GVP Conditioning Balm w/ coconut oil
    LI: a touch of JCTS
    Products: my HG is Tresemme Bouncy Curls Defining Gel mixed with a touch of BRHG over a little flax seed gel, SM Souflee/Milk for 2nd day hair, occasionally Bioterra Curling Creme and Gel
    Modified CG since November 2012- finally found what works! :)

    One of the most useful places to start learning what will work best for your hair is to figure out what your hair's particular properties are, porosity & texture primarily. Here's a link to a website that can help you figure this out.Live Curly Live Free | the naturally curly hair experts

    (You used "fros" to say your hair got frizzy. I'm sure you didn't mean any harm but referring to Afros in this way can be hurtful. All hair textures are beautiful! :))
    Medium Texture/Normal Porosity
    Conditioners: Curl Junkie conditioners, Elucence moisture balancing, Darcy's pumpkin seed, Mop Top Daily
    Gels: CJ Pattern Pusha, CJ Curl Queen, UFDCM, Mop Top Curly Custard, KCCC (wish it didn't take so long to dry!), CJ Aloe Fix Lite
    Weekly PT (CJ Repair Me) & DT
    Icequeen method
    CG since Aug. 08, still a lot to learn
