Frizz Control?

What is a good product to use for frizz control? I have thick mid length hair, I don't have a lot of frizz in the morning. But once I mid morning comes around I can start to notice it more, then again this Florida weather doesn't help much lol. TIA

    For me, three good pumps of FOTE aloe vera gel on sopping wet hair straight out of the shower before all my other products. Reduces frizz and aids in definition and clumping. Keeps that desirable squishiness going as you're putting in your product(s) without adding any additional heaviness.

    ETA: I am in Atlanta.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    I am not from the south, but durring a recent visit there I tried out a lot of products. I had great results from using [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] (and BRHG over it).
    Currently on the shelf:
    Cowash- suave coconut
    condish- Biolage Conditioning Balm
    Still experimenting with styling products-
    BRHG, Kenra Moisturizing Condish (as a leave in), Mirra Gel and Mousse just added
    Hair is getting healthier every day! Avoiding glycerin & alcohol for now.

    Aw crap ~ yet another product I'm going to run out and buy asap! Looks like I'll be bumping my husband out of the bathroom, no room for him anymore! I am indeed turning into a PJ and have hardly got my feet wet yet!

    LOL! At least it's cheap - I got a couple of 20 oz. pump bottles for about $3.75 ea. at Rite-Aid. You can probably beat that at Wal-Mart or somewhere. It's also good for seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp and face and now I always have some on hand for burns and sunburns - it's a good multi-tasker.

    Can you just use aloe gel? I am not familiar with the spray. I have seen J.A.S.O.N. brand that is CG friendly and 99% aloe but it's gel.

    FOTE is a gel, not a spray.
