Have you tried Kinky curling custard...I have heard it doesnt play well with butter based conditioners but I use it with Kinky curly knot today leave in and I have zero frizz...I have a twa but I've experiemented with other products but nothing has worked quite as well..... I've heard some people found success with eco-styler gel...i've never tried it though.

I did try the kkc but not with the leave in. Maybe I'll try that this weekend and see how that goes. this weekend I am treating my hair to a pamper day so we shall see what happens.

Thanks

Hair mousse tends to have a lighter hold.
Maybe you need something a little stronger like a gel?

A lot of ladies seem to be having success with eco styler gels but I haven't tried them personally.

My hair is crazy thirsty too.
It frizzes like nobody's business when it's not as moisturized as it needs to be.

The 2 products that I like the most so far are Nubian Heritage's Raw Shea Butter Conditioner & the Shea Moisture leave-in.

I'm still a bit of a PJ, but after finding these 2 products my hair is mostly frizz free.
I like that you can find them in most BSS and/or Whole Foods.

I've never tried DOO Grow.

What kind of mousse are you using? A lot of mousse tends to promote a drying effect because they're alcohol-based. Do tell, please.

Ok I know about that one, but the mousse may still be the culprit. The previous ladies are right that you still may need a heavier water-based cream or a gel to help to hold the style up as the water in your hair evaporates throughout the day. I used to keep a water bottle mixed with a leave-in, water, and oil to spray my hair twice a day to keep the curls saturated.

Henna can also help to reduce frizz. I haven't tried it because I pretty much mastered frizzies without it, (and let me tell you, my hair can be out of control if I don't take the proper measures to reduce it)

Try using a leave-in, evoo, and a moisturizer/gel. For me, I don't use a leave-in anymore because I used a lot of water-based products for moisture anyway so I didn't need an extra product. On damp hair, I seal with castor oil, apply KCCC and a cream gel. This style lasts me all week. The first day is a stiff, but defined hold. The trick to make it soft occurs after my hair dries. I put oil in my hand, rub it through my hair, then spritz with my water bottle. This softens the hair up and I don't lose the style because the water makes the curl loose, but the gel counteracts that by locking the style back in place. On day 3 I may spray with glycerin and water for extra softness. Works for me everytime. I only style my hair once a week thanks to hold, but I tweak it throughout the week. I never used gel in my relaxed days and I never thought I would use it as a natural, but I figured that oil and water softens it up bigtime.

I might have to give the kkcc another try so many peopole have said such good things about it. I dont want to go product crazy but these damn frizzies are about to be the death of me! when you say srt using the evoo leave in are you talking about the brand out the oil its self? when you use the castor oil do you apply before you use the kkc? Yeah I didnt use gel when i had my relaxer so i didnt think i would be useing it now as well

Don't go product crazy. Use what you have, but add something for more moisture, hold or definition. Try using a leave-in, evoo, then your cream/gel. It's not all about product, but technique as well. I use castor oil first because it provides a barrier from any crunchiness from the gel. I figured that out during the first 2 months post BC. Practice over the weekend. Divide your hair in sections and alternate the way you apply products on your hair post-wash. Don't rub the products in your hair using your palm or scrunching with your fingers because you'll be asking for frizzy trouble. Afterwards, see which section works best for you. It's really all about trial and error!
