newbie..product question

So I've been perusing the sight for weeks now gathering all kinds of fabulous information! I'm just a haircut away from actually making the CG plunge. I've already had some positive hair changes with just using some of the different techniques, so I'm really excited to see what going full blown might do for my hair. In some of my experimentation, I've noticed that my hair really likes a serum to control the frizz. I realize this will be a big no-no soon! So my question is..is there a cg-friendly product that is similiar that you can recommend or will the frizz just naturally come under control when it gets used to it's new method? My husband has granted me a little Mothe.r's Day money and I plan to spend it in Curl Mart! By the way..I'm Jennifer with what I'm pretty sure is mostly 3a hair. Thanks for the help..I'm sure I'll be hanging around for support as I get started!

    You can try the in-expensive K-Y Jelly.
    Or [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]Curl Keeper[/buylink] which you can find at Curl Mart.

    I think those two will have the serum texture you're looking for...

    I am a total newbie and have been struggling with this same issue. I've tried putting a small amount of olive oil on my hands, rubbing them together, then smoothing it light over the top of my dry hair. This gives a something the shine and fly-away taming that I used to get from serums.
