Frizzing while wet?? What the heck?

I have no idea what is going on with my hair (2c/3a) but lately while it is air drying, after about 1/2 hour, it starts to frizz (!) My hair is still wet and it's frizzing. Does that make any sense at all? (I'm lo po). I've also noticed day 2 and 3 are worse; In the morning (after pineappleing and satin case) I will either run a wet hand across the crown in the shower and add a little leave in in my palms so my hair is definitely damp. As i dries, it starts to frizz again!! It seems the only time it's NOT frizzy is when it's SOAKING wet. I'm so confused!! I'm currently using Deva One, No Poo, As I Am leave in and a go back and forth with either gel or curl cream (everything is silicone-free). scrunch with a microfiber towel and let it air dry. WHAT THE HECK?? Am I doing something wrong?

    If this is not typical for you, then perhaps you have buildup. Have you used a shampoo other than the No Poo recently? All products can build up in the hair, even the good ones, and a gentle shampoo every now and then can get rid of the buildup.

    Oooohhh... I didn't think of that! I usually try to clarify monthly but it's been longer then that. Thanks for the reminder, I'll give it a shot!

    hey, :) .

    i have low porosity too , and have found avoiding polyquaterniums in products helped since any time a product had 1 or more ,
    my curls felt frizzy while wet. and odd feeling. Deva No-Poo has polyquaternium-7

    Ahhh...that's the one thing I haven't looked at-the polyquats. And yeah, it IS an odd feeling! I'll check everything for quarts and try a new regime. TY!

    My hair frizzes as soon as I blot the moisture from it. I dont know my properties but it behaves like LP hair, is the "frizzing while wet" problem characteristic of LP hair? would some protein help? What products DONT have poly quats???

    So hard to find non-polyquat stuff. LMK if you do!
