I have long wavy/curly hair that also has frizzy tendencies.

I don’t use product, but I do find that when I put it into a braid while it’s wet and then take it down when it’s dry, I tend to get some very pretty, smooth waves. 🙂 Easiest styling method ever.

(And good on you for letting it go natural. The longer you go without straightening it, the healthier it will feel and the less frizzy it’ll be.)

Have you tried Moroccan/Argon oil?  I know it works for a lot of people (it doesn’t for me, but I have weird hair.) 

I really like the John Freida frizz ease line.  It’s relatively inexpensive and it works.  

I air dry too.  So I throw on some hair serum, spray in some dream curls spray and finish with a high hold gel.  It air dries into ringlets and I’m good to go.  I love their straightening products too (in particular the 3 day straight).  If I need to tame frizz/fly aways late in the day I use the Secret Weapon.  

And hi! *waves*

I use morocan oil. I have very thick wavy little past shoulder length and that seems to help with the frizzy’s

Mix a curl cream with a smoother/slick finishing cream when its damp and scrunch scrunch scrunch and let it dry. Because you said you have thin hair a mousse with a volumizer might work too, but put the mousse on a hair brush and brush it in to your hair starting a couple inches from your roots the mousse will be more evenly distributed and you won’t end up with curly crunchy ends and a frizzy top. Also don’t forget to moisturize! I use a deep conditioner about once a week and a leave in conditioner a couple times a week.

@Vsmart:  I also have very frizzy thin wavy hair.

The problem with frizzy hair is that it craves moisture. The problem with thin hair is that it looks really oily with the smallest amount of product.

I honestly think it is the most difficult hair type to have.

A few tips i have found work well for me;

1. I wash my hair every 2nd or 3rd day. When your hair is frizzy i think people try to wash it daily to tame the frizz but it is best to let the natural oils work their magic.

2. On the days i do wash my hair i slather my hair with pure coconut oil, leave it on for an hour and then wash it.

3. I dry my hair only with a microfibre towel. I pay about $10 for it and it is a life saver! Do not blow dry! Just gently towel dry with a microfbire towel and youll notice a huge difference.

4. Invest in a silk pillow case. It’s a really good trick for keeping frizzy’s at bay while you sleep.

5. Use a really good moisturising shampoo that is fragrance/alcohol free to prevent drying the hair out.

Good luck!

You should look into the curly girl method.  It’s what I use for my wavy hair and it’s been awesome!!  There’s a facebook group too. If you are interested in joining, shoot me a message 🙂

I guess everyones hair will react differently to products/ways of taming

mine is thick and wavy, I shower every second day and wash it then, if im going out soon after I blow dry a little but not until its completely dry, then it air dries for the rest, while its drying I twirl my hair into wringlets so it will hopefully dry like that. and it it starts going a little frizzy before I leave, I tie it in a low ponytail until its time to get out of that car, it just kind of makes the frizzy go down. I never brush it when its dry. and its dry and I need to go out and it looks shit, I wet my hands and put water on it and scrunch it up a bit. thats how I do it anyways! I just hope for the best really! haha

Get a hair mask to use in the shower. The great thing is that it washes out so it won’t really weigh down your hair afterwards when its dry. I have thin curly hair as well and it is crazy how much of a difference they make! I like the Macadamia Mask that looks like this:

 

 

It is really expensive for the size… like $40 I think but made a huge difference when I used it. For a less expensive option, Organix makes a mask that I got similar results with for only 8. Not QUITE as good, but way more affordable.

Have you tried rolling it with hot rollers?  I let mine air dry and the roll it with velvet covered hot rollers.  It literally takes me 5 minutes and i don’t worry about heat damage because they don’t get that hot.  It gives it a natural, voluminous loose curl look.

You could give Living Proof a shot- they have a completely different type of frizz fighting ingredient. Most hair products use either oils or silicones, which weigh fine hair down. 

It didn’t work for me, sadly, because I have thick hair with a mind of its own. It might be worth a try for you though!

Have you tried deep conditioners?  I’m out right now (and I’m not sure of the brand, I just know it to see it) but I started using one twice a week in the shower because my hair is super dry.  It’s helped quite a bit.  I’ll shoot you a PM with the name when I pick some more up. 

I think its really trial and error.  Anything ‘oil’ seems to dry my hair out even more.  The hot oils and what not leave me a mess.  

I wonder if you started with in-shower products if it would combat the frizz when it dries?
