Hey guys!!

I'm new to the board, and just did my big chop in April!!, I will post pics soon, but currently I do co-wash and go's I use VO5 conditioner, then Aussie Moisture Conditioner, Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioner, then Eco Style Gel (green one) everyday. But, since it's hot now, and my hair is now 2 inches long, FRIZZ is a BIGGG Problem!! What can I do to control it? Any suggestions would be helpful

    Try using less of each individual product if you can. If you can't, then try skipping the heaviest product. Since it's hot, and depending on where you are more humid you may not need it.

    You may also have to completely change products too. That will have to be something you experiment with and will depend on your hair properties. Experimentation will definitely go a little easier if you know what those are- so your porosity, texture, and density since you already know your curl type and length.

    Porosity can be easiest found out by looking at how long your hair takes to dry without product, long time = low; short time = high; in between = normal. There are other things too, like how long it takes to get it wet, how well it absorbs product, etc.

    Texture refers to how thick each hair strand is. Thick strands- think a piece of thread (or in terms of hair, I read somewhere pubic hairs given as a reference value). Fine hairs are the thinnest, and for instance my hairs pretty much disappear when they shed and fall away. Medium is somewhere between the other two.

    Density is how much hair is present in a given area- so high density hair has a lot of hair packed into a specific area. Low density hair doesn't have a lot of hair in a specific area- so you might see a lot more scalp with low density hair whereas you won't really see a lot of scalp in high density hair. Medium density hair will again be somewhere in the middle.

    Thanks, I actually tried Hair Milk (just for me version) and its actually good. My hair didn't get frizzy, I actually cut the gel out of my daily hair regimen.
