    Colorado is my physical home but I spend a lot of time in my mind. It's safer that way.

    Stretching washes, wash day is frizzy day, by about day 3 my hair is a lot less crazy, by day 5 it starts getting oily so updo's are a must. Wash day is usually day 5 or 6 and I am working on stretching more.

    No use of combs nor brushes at all ever.
    No use of towels - only t-shirts or very fine microfibre towels.
    No leaving hair to flop onto a normal pillow.
    No heat appliances at all,air dry only.
    Conditioner washing with no sulphates nor cones.
    Leave in conditioner.
    I use a cone free cheap curl creme too (store's own brand from Boots)
    Glycerin & rosewater sprayed on when soaking wet and when dry if needed through the day.

    Aloe vera gel didn't work for me and dried my hair out.

    When it gets hotter here I'll be trying out a water spray through the day if needed and also seeing how an anti-humectant works underneath the glycerin.

    I'm almost always frizz free now and it's soft,, shiney and curly.

    The only time lately I have got a little frizzy was when I didn't have an umbrella and got caught in gale force winds and drizzle.

    I also wear my hair down always except for when I sleep and I walk everywhere so I'm out in the elements a lot plus I walk to work with my hair wet.

    My hair loves the wet brush! It's like a tangle teezer with a handle and really helps me smooth out my hair.
    I also find that bunning/braiding my hair before it dries helps.

    No conditioner at all (yes irisheyes, at least my hair got way better when I finally dared to ditch it ), diluted mild shampoo with a some ACV added, mineral oil as a leave in, careful blow drying on cool, and sometimes a protein treatment That´s my best recipe so far, not working perfectly but way better than anything else I have tried!

    conditioner only - don't use shampoo

    leave conditioner in your hair

    air dry or bun or braid to dry

    don't touch your hair while it dries

    satin pillowcase

    no brushes or combs, only finger combing if needed but best to not even do that

    My hair hates distearyldimonium chloride, quaternium-87, phenoxyethanol, brushes

    Absolutely nothing worked to get rid of my frizz, until I got layers cut into my hair, and then, to my happy surprise, all frizz was gone!

    Giving up SLS shampoos (except occasionally to clarify), and switching to CO has worked wonders for my frizz.
    My routine has changed since starting to use Rogaine regularly to try to regain some thickness. I still cleanse every other day, but I use T/Sal shampoo, followed by my beloved Suave Wild Cherry conditioner. A vinegar rinse and catnip leave in follow.

    I've concocted a mixture which works! I add about 1/2 teaspoon of gylcerine and 1/2 teaspoon of aloe vera gel into about 150ml of tap water and spray it on damp or dry hair (and then smooth the hair down with a comb or my hand) whenever the flyaways start having a party. It calms everything down until the next wash
    Argan oil is ok if applied on damp hair but the mister mixture is way better.
