Anyone use Curls in a Bottle in Winter?

I am approaching my one year anniversary being completely natural, and, therefore, this is my first winter enjoying the experience. Does anyone use CIAB during the winter months? I reside in Connecticut, and, I've already noticed my hair as being rather dry and crunchy after having used CIAB. Would appreciate feedback. Thank you!:happy1:

    I stopped using Curl Keeper once the dews dropped and switched back to CIAB. It's all year round for me.

    Yep - it's an all-year-round product that is glycerin free however in winter you should consider using a leave-in underneath.
