I have wavy hair and depending on the weather (I thought) I can end up with a halo of frizz or not much at all. I air dried my hair two days ago and had frizz all over the place (washed and conditioned my hair only with no leave in.)

Today I used my Giovanni Leave in on my hair when it was dripping wet and put it up in a towel for about 10 minutes. Then I took the towel down and let it airdry in a room that is being heated by a gas heater. Plus I haven't touched my hair at all. Often I go through and run my fingers down the wiry ones - but today I kept my hands out of it!!

I've just now gone to check it in the mirror and I have next to no halo of frizz at all.

So, is frizz due to humid weather or lack of moisture in ones hair? Or both?

Both.
Products that dry out my hair give me frizz no matter what the temperature and/or humidity are.

But I get less frizz even on humid days when my hair is nice and moisturized. :shrug:

Also - a pea sized dollop of FOTE aloe vera gel mixed with a drop of EVOO demolishes any halo frizz I have. ;)

Leave-in conditioner + a dab of aloe gel + water shaken up in a spray bottle = best frizz spray ever!

When it gets really humid out I get the halo. And then also in the winter when it's really dry.
So I would say both.
I keep a tube of Frizz Ease Secret Weapon from John Frieda on hand for those days.
It's a finishing creme and super coney, but I use it so rarely (and only a dab) I'm not worried.
And it has a nice cherry smell.

I think I will try triumphator!'s formula though when I run out of this, it sounds great.
Not sure if I will ever run out though, it's been well over a year and I still have more than half the tube left.

Yay! I have to attribute the spray to morecowbell -- I saw her post with the recipe. Here it is:

Aloe Vera Gel Spray for fighting frizz:
1 tbsp of 100% Aloe Vera Gel in an 8oz spray bottle of half water and half leave-in conditioner
