Secret weapon: A spray gel that contains conditioners. A good one: John Frieda Frizz-Ease Spiral Style Curl-Defining Spray Gel ($6, drugstores). "Your curls will stay frizz-free because the conditioners in gel coat the outer layer of the hair cuticle," Potempa explains.
Pro trick: Avoid brushing your hair when it's dry. Keep a comb like the Plugged In Wet Look Comb ($3, sallybeauty.com) in the shower to use for detangling. After showering, gently squeeze hair dry with a towel and spritz in the gel. Instead of using your fingers, which can break up curls, lightly scrunch strands with the towel to absorb excess moisture and boost curls.
