Im a guy with long (6in) curly hair, help?

So I am growing out my hair for a ponytail, but i the meantime I need to figure out how to control my curly, frayed/frizzy hair. I use hair gel every morning to style it but it inevitably ends looking like this picture. Also i dont use conditioner, i probably should but my hair already is a little greasy from the gel(but u dont see that in the pic). Advise? Should i just figure out how to live with it?
The pic is a bit old but it gets the point across

    I would try using conditioner and finding a different gel that doesn't leave your hair greasy.

    I'm a guy and my hair is close to shoulder length. As Therese suggested I would condition. Depending on your hair properties you might need to condition daily or regularly.
