I need a good hair product for my slightly wavy/frizzy hair

I normally straighten my hair so it looks ok but when I am on my hols I like to leave it to dry naturally, can anyone recommend somethig that I can put on it which will encourage the natural curl and not leave me with any frizz?

Do frizease not do anything to encourage frizz free curls?

A more expensive option might be a redken product, they always do a good job on my hair which has wild tendencies.

Now why didn't I think of that

Effective and cheap and readily available!!

no advice but will watch in anticpation. I always leave my hair to dry naturally so usually tie it back to hide the frizz.

ive got naturally curly hair. what i do is wet it when i have a shower but dont use any shampoo etc. then i put loads of shockwaves gel on it and dry it upside down with a hairdryer. i sit with my head upside down until its dry. try not to touch it with your hands whilst you're drying it coz that can cause it to go frizzy. i use shampoo maybe 2 or 3 times a week at the most otherwise it makes it really dry and frizzy. if you just wet it you dont wash the natural oils out which help to stop the frizzyness!! i never ever ever brush my hair either. if i do i look like a '70s throwback with a huge afro.

ive tried frizzease stuff and find that ordinary gel is better at stopping the frizz. my hair goes really frizzy if i leave it to dry naturally.

I can second the Charles Worthington Q&A. I use that after every wash and my hair is incredibly wild!
If I want it straight I use a Bed Head product, can't remember the name exactly but its green and looks as though it has glitter in it.

DS is mixed race and we use Elastocurl by Kerastase (sp?). Works realy well.

Kerastase products are the best by miles. I use Masqueintense and on hols leave it in for overnight/whole day on the beach. And a leave-in conditioner on top of that works well, I use John Frieda Blonde Healthy Attitude spray and it's magic! You can get that in supermarkets. Tigi has a really good curl booster leave in conditioner in their Bed Head range can't remember the name but it's a green spray bottle. I find that creams work better than serums if your hair is really porous/frizzy, I use Tigi Bed Head Shine Junkie in wet hair and it leaves my hair really glossy and frizz-free!
