    Nothing lol, really nothing.

    Even oils won't help.

    Sweet almond oil on wet or dry hair (or both). And cold dry weather helps! Humid weather or drizzle and I look like a troll.

    For me- ACV rinse after washing (helps a little bit); putting hair up whilst still wet and leaving to dry (helps a lot). But yeah... humid weather and you might as well not have bothered!

    Right now my own marshmallow rinse, left in, is fantastic. It's like magic, and I am so grateful I ran across a post about marshmallow detangler on the blog Frugally Sustainable. That's where I got the idea. Well, that and all the people here using citic acid rinses. I have a feeling when it gets really hot and humid here over the summer I won't be able to skip the flax gel. That stuff has amazing hold for a homemade product. It should do well.

    Very moisturizing (or very cone-y) conditioners, condition twice, a leave-in on top of that and then a serum (or a few drops of baby oil). That's what does it for me.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    I can relate. I also use oil to tame the worst bits. Allowing my hair to dry 'styled' rather than loose also helps.

    I found aloe vera gel fixes the frizzies for my hair even on humid days! I'm so happy about this, too bad I just discovered this recently. If I would of known this, it would of helped me get through the awkward stage easily instead of wearing a bandanna for a whole year during that phase.

    Wrapping my hair in a silk scarf when wet.
    Aloe vera gel or styling gel.

    For the really stubborn bits - styling wax, paste, or pomade. A little goes a long way.

    All oil does is give me oily frizz.

    I dilute my shampoo and conditioner with good results. I think full strength shampoo raises my hair cuticle too much, and using full strength conditioner after that keeps too much moisture in my hair. My hair is very porous, so less water retention means less frizz. Styling products and oils make the frizz worse, probably because they work to keep the water inside the hair shaft. Someday I'll have the nerve to skip conditioner altogether, because I think it may be doing more harm than good.
