I wonder if it's ok to open this thread to frizzy wavy haired like us, exchanging tips and styling methods.

In this thread we are going to post: recipes, styling methods, routines with the least damage to our hair.

So kindly post only things that have worked on your hair, and describe the results.

http://sl.glitter-graphics.net/pub/2366/2366463qxo2vm8vtv.gif How do you dry your hair? and what is the best method that gave you a good result....etc.

http://sl.glitter-graphics.net/pub/2366/2366463qxo2vm8vtv.gif How do finish in 5-10 mins, and achieve a great style.

I'll start:

http://sl.glitter-graphics.net/pub/1157/1157218ab5entegmw.gifOils that have worked for me:
Olive oil + fresh garlic: my hair grew fast in 4 months. Smell will stay a day or two, would rinse with black coffee and use hair mist.

Fresh sesame oil: Extremely soft hair, better than conditioner.

Olive oil alone: Dries my hair.

Henna: reduced frizzes significantly, but I don't like the color.

http://sl.glitter-graphics.net/pub/1157/1157218ab5entegmw.gifMy styling routine:
Going out: I use flat iron or curling iron.
At home: I let it air dry, and it looks horrible, that's why I use flat irons when I go out, I can't leave the house like this.
Even if I wet bun it, it will not fall down and I end up with a big fat swirly "S".
I usually use products but none work.

http://sl.glitter-graphics.net/pub/1157/1157218ab5entegmw.gifProduct I use occasionally to fight frizzes:
S-factor SMOOTHING LUSTERIZER Defrizzer & Tamer
I apply it after styling my hair either flat iron or blow drying straight, it does work and my hair doesn't frizz even when it's raining.

Next up is...

airdry and scrunch with aloe vera gel and/or a natural curl creme. I do not use heat or commercial products, only natural stuff. Deep treatments like olive oil infused with fresh rosemary work really well for my hair.

Well, I USED to blowdry and iron my hair flat (with a curling iron, before I had heard of a flat iron) and always had lots of damage...I would not recommend this for fine or delicate hair!

SMTs (once a month or so; more often if I can) help tame my frizz as does CO and WO washing. Both make my hair smoother and help it hang better.

Leave-in is a must; I'm discovering oiling (coconut) again.

Product, sadly, is necessary for me to have 'presentable' hair. Usually strong hold gel, sometimes mixed with conditioner, mousse also works (I use Aveda Phomollient). I usually wash, then sleep with damp hair in a bun, and use product to style my hair the next day. That way I don't have to slather it with product just to make it lay halfway decent.

There doesn't seem to be anything that will ever make my hair straight or smooth or even tidy, short of damaging it. I do prefer updos on 'dirty' hair and also sometimes oil or use conditioner to keep braids, for example, in place.

I have tried every product under the sun as far as keeping my hair smooth and sleek and frizz free! I used to use heat on it ALOT and used my straighteners all the time.

One of the best products is Aveda's Brilliant Humectant Pomade in the little blue tub. A little goes a very long way. If you use too much your hair looks like it is dripping in grease, so don't overload it.

Also, I never brush my hair when dry if I don't want to end up looking like a frizzball. This does not apply when straightening my hair, just when curly/wavy.

I used to like my paddle brush when blowdrying my hair - it reduced the frizz and gave a sleeker finish.

However, I have renounced heat for the forseeable future so I will probably be going back to serums in a big way in order to cope!

My routine:
- Soak your hair in coconut oil 1-2 hours before washing. And I mean soak to the point it looks wet.
- Shampoo scalp twice and condition the length - leave it on for a few minutes before rinse. My favorite brand is Ganier Fructis shampoo and conditioner.
- The most important thing: do not touch hair before it is dry. Just leave it alone. No combing or detangling, not even in the shower. Don't sleep on it either. If you don't have too much time, open a window, it will dry faster. Otherwise, stay inside.
- When dry, put a tiny bit of coconut oil on your fingertips, split your hair in left and right, and gently fingercomb and detangle your length. Don't yank or pull; the oil will help you detangle. This will add moisture to the hair as well. After that, you can comb it.
- As a finish, you can gather the hair with a bit more coconut oil, but be careful with the ammount, because you don't want your hair to look greasy.

Up until a month or so ago, i flat itroned it and used coney serums. It worked but I am sure I damaged it a lot.

Now, I CO wash and let my hair airdry or if I am in a huge rush, the cool setting on the hairdryer.

I put a bit of leave in mixed with a few drops of mineral oil when it is still wet and then more if I have frizzies to tame when it is dry. or jsut a drop or two of mineral oil.

I sleep with 2 french braids, in a paranda. In the morning I just unbraid it, straighten my bangs, add a drop or two of mineral oil, and go.

A leave-in, gel, serum or 2 drops of mineral (baby) oil. All of it scrunched in. Air dried until about 50 to 70% dry, then diffused.

I have been doing the curly girl method going on a week and a half almost two weeks. So far Im liking it. Its suppose to be CO and I use Hair One. Which is a Wen knock off. Not sure if that counts for CO but Hair One isnt a poo so Im thinking it does. And one major difference I have noticed is way less frizz! Way less!:D This amazes me. The key to the no frizz is not using a towel. I soak up excess water with an old cotton t-shirt and then plop with a cotton long sleeve shirt and air dry my hair. What a difference.

Now Im not a curly. I have fine hair with about two s-waves. So I guess I would be a light wavy and this method brings out the waves to the max! And the no frizz has me sold. I have damaged frizzy looking hair and this method makes my hair look 10 times healthier. So far Im liking it.

I wash with conditioner - never use shampoo. I seal with about 10 to 12 drops of mineral oil. I turban my hair for twenty minutes, then clip up the roots for height and let dry without touching.


(OOps, I just noticed you asked for frizzy wavy hair, and I am a frizzy CURLY hair. Please disregard and return to you usual programming!:o)

Yeah! We're back!! I thought I had broke it good.

Up until this August, most of the time when I'd be washing my hair I'd use only shampoo (and one that SLS and SLES in it) and my hair was always frizzy and hard to manage until I got layers cut in. (Now that I'm pretty much over my layers, I want to grow them out). In late August I started following up with condtioner every time I shampoo, I'm seeing less frizz. Still trying to figure out though if the frizz was due to the nature of my hair or if it's because my hair was just dry for so many years. So, I don't use any products right now. Sometimes if I'm really fed up with my hair, I'll try to smooth it does with water.

I usually wear my hair up and spray it with lots of hairspray. It's terrible, I know. I just get so frustrated with frizz with the 90% humidity where I live. Lol. I've been trying different products to get away from the hairspray. I put some mousse in my hair yesterday and let it dry and it turned out really nicely. The natural wave pattern really looks great when the frizz is tamed! :)
