how can I get rid of my extremely frizzy hair?

I. Feel. Your. Pain.
I had frizzy hair almost all of my life. I only got it to look decent in the past 3 years. And this is how I did it:
My first rule: no silly hair products. No gels, hairsprays, mousse. If it doesn't nourish your hair, it damages it. Even the ones that are supposed to be ok. I've tried them all, it's bs.
Hair products that are ok: nourishing serums (I use one called Organix Coconut Milk or something). If you use a blow dryer or straightener (I use both), use something to protect your hair from heat damage. With straighteners, get a decent ceramic one. They can be pricey but it is a lot better for your hair.
Second rule: never ever brush your hair when it is wet. Instead, gently comb it. I find that brushing my hair before getting into the shower makes it a lot more manageable once I get out.
Third rule: don't wash your hair every day. This might sound kind of gross but it's actually unhealthy to overwash your hair. There are lots of essential oils that you lose when you wash every day. Your hair can get frizzy when it lacks those oils. I wash my hair every 2-3 days which works for my thickness and length (I have really thick long hair so I can get away with it without it looking dirty).
Fourth rule: keep your hair wrapped in a towel when you first get out. I don't know why this works but it does and I don't question it.Fifth rule: opt for a moisturizing or nourishing shampoos and conditioners. I'm a big fan of the Herbal Essense moisturizing line. Try a few out and see which one's make your hair feel healthier and stronger.
There are also vitamins you could take also. I think they're called healthy skin, hair and nails supplements (that's what it would actually say on the box). I'm not familiar with how well they work as I have never tried them and I have heard mixed reviews.1
