Girl, that’s me. So with frizzy (and can I assume wavy curly?) After a bunch of trial and major error here’s what I do. 

Do not brush your hair on wash day. Comb during conditioner in shower. I have itchy scalp so some days I have to rub the conditioner in my scalp.

Once you do final comb and rinse in shower squeeze and scrunch. Add either a gel (non crunchy) or leave in conditioner. Do not touch it after this point and air dry it. This will end up taking like zero time eventually. Just find a light leave in or heavy and use less. I use either Mixed Chicks or Aveda leave in dpends on dryness. I literally combed put mixed in my hair and left today. No extra time than had I put it in a bun. 

Dry shampoo is good for second or third day hair. You can do half up on day two and bun day three. I flat iron it on day four if it’s not greasy yet. Use a heat protection. 

In order to keep this up without it getting raggedy is to get regular trims. Don’t tie it up at night(I’m still working on this myself).

Google pineappling and the curly girl method. I use pineapple sometimes but I twist at night so it’s not good for me.

ljm308 :  Yes, I still love to brush my hair and I know it’s bad. I just can’t wear it curly after unless I wet it again and braid it and even then it’s 50/50 that it’s going to look ok. Lol. 

I’m here for product recommendations too! 🙂

I used to pineapple it up top when I washed at night.

Hello! I, too prefer sleep over hair/makeup. Hell I’m waiting to have kids cuz I love sleep so much. 

Anyway, I’m a 2b/3a and I haven’t brushed my hair in about four years. I only use a wide tooth comb in the shower with conditioner in my hair. Then I use a dollop of Moroccan cream (it’s the same company that does the oil) and ‘plop’ my hair on top of my head and use a terrycloth hair towel to tie it up. Sometimes I sleep in it. Then I release the hair and air dry or if it’s colder I’ll use a blow dryer with a fingertip diffuser. 

I feel like I just used a lot of words that won’t be helpful. There are categories for hair curl, look yours up. Then stop brushing your dry hair. You are splitting the curl and creating frizz. Also, look up plopping on YouTube. Just make sure you spell it right. 😜

ljm308 :  To be honest I haven’t tried the method either bit I let people know about it because some rave over it! 

 

Thanks for the products! I forgot that I also like Aveda curl cream!

My favorite hair products are anything by Joico, especially the K-PAK ones. Most of the products are geared towards color-treated hair (which mine is), but they’d probably do great with frizz and dryness. My hair tends to get sort of greasy naturally, but the Joico products have never made my hair feel heavy or greasy.

For Dandruff/scalp issues, this stuff works wonders! http://www.neutrogena.com/category/hair/t-gel-.do 

I also recently got this product and it’s amazing! http://kevinmurphy.com.au/product/re-store/ It’s really expensive, but if you have to wash your hair quite a bit, this product cleanses your hair while restoring it’s health – rather than stripping and damaging the way that shampoo does. You use it in place of shampoo and conditioner 1-2 times a week, and it makes your hair look clean again, but also super shiny and smooth and helathy (not heavy or filmy at all). I have to shower 5 times a week because i go to the gym before work, and if i just rinse it it looks greasy, but if I wash it every time it gets all dry and damaged feeling. This stuff like saved my hair haha.
