What is everyone's way of battling frizz. For me Argan oil does the job. And of course use as little of heat as possible

    Regular Deep Conditioning, Leave in, and gel!   I would probably have to DC less if I gave up my diffuser, but my curls look amazing after being diffused.  Plus my hair takes way too long to dry without heat.

    I am so jealous of curlies who can use oil to control frizz!  I can't use pure oil on my hair.  Even the smallest amount of the lightest oils make me end up looking like I spent the night in a gutter.

    A really good moisturizing gel does the job for me. If it forms a good cast, I know I'll be frizz free for a while, especially if I can reapply the gel a little when frizz starts to reappear. Sleep on the cast and shake out in the morning, refresh with a little more gel if needed. Works the best for me.

    I also stand by scrunching. It may sound obvious, but when I first went CG, I was a little scared of scrunching because I heard it could cause curls and I didn't want curls, I just wanted my hair to be frizz free. However, when I tried it, it worked amazingly and actually reduced frizz by a lot.

    Water and a good gel or cream work the best for me! I have pretty fine hair so I do use oils, but I try to use them only sparingly since too much will weigh my hair down and make it greasy. I prefer to stick to argan or almond oil. But, neither oil works at getting rid of frizz that's already there. I mainly use them as a preventive measure to guard against creating frizz (ex. I put some on hands when I'm scrunching out a gel cast or fluffing/refreshing my curls in the morning).

    Water, conditioner, leave in, creams, gel, prayer, and oil.
    But in all seriousness, I style on soaking wet hair so i trap moisture in which doesn't allow my hair to frizz. Minimal oil in styling to ensure it stays moisturized.

    I'm with @BrittanyM. The biggest help for me is to put stylers on hair that is very wet. I have also found that it helps to first rope-scrunch the hair (scrunch as if you were moving your hands down a rope) when adding products. After my products seem well distributed and absorbed, then I switch to the usual "spring"-type scrunching.
