right now i am using smooth 'n shine strong hold curling mousse because i want my natural curls. But i find that after i apply it to my hair when its wet and let it air dry, after a couple of hours my hair becomes more frizzy than curly. It says it prevents frizz, but i was wondering if theres something else i should be doing so that my hair can stay curly without the frizz and becoming poofy. Also, I tried "plopping" as someone had previously suggested to me, but it didnt make much of a difference. Maybe i was doing it wrong. Please help, i want to be able to wear my hair without having to blow dry it and it will still look nice. thanks.

    mouse makes my hair frizzy also. Have you tried using leave in conditioner and gel ( try "fruit of the earth" aloe vera gel or fantasia ic gel) That combo is a good place to start.

    When I first came to this website, I looked at everyone's albums and the people who had hair like mine, I asked them what products they used. Thousands of dollars worth of products later, I finally found the ones that work for me! :D (just kidding) I found alot of good products for my hair that way.

    I second curlycovrgirl's recommendation of a leave-in plus gel (instead of mousse). That should cut down on frizz.

    What is your hair type? I think plopping generally works better for looser-haired curlies. I tried it once or twice and, while my hair dried much faster, I also ended up w/ a head full of frizz. If you have time, I would recommend airdrying or sitting under a hood dryer for a few minutes.
