Missing the Humidity!

This dry winter weather is not doing my hair any favors. :? It's dry, undefined and generally messy looking. While I like winter in general, my hair will be glad for April showers.

    I was just saying this on the 3a board. I have through wed of dry weather and then we're back to rainy. I had to add jojoba to the mix yesterday to get proper curls and even then I had no volume.
    I guess I should be thankful it's humid most of the time. I used to think it was a curse
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    I wouldn't care if I never had to experience another humid day in my life. We've had a couple of bouts of it here recently (very unusual for SA) and I've been at my wits end with my hair. Hate, hate, hate humidity!

    You know, that's interesting - I've always loathed the humidity and its relationship to my hair, but I've yet to experience a humid season with my curls. Since I've been wearing it straight for-ev-er, humidity always made my hair an even pouffier, frizzier, mess. Perhaps now that I've banned the straightener, the humidity in NY will be more of a blessing than a curse . . . I look forward to finding out . . . :)

    I used to think that summer humidity was bad until I experienced winter dryness frizz. I found summer frizz easier to manage, probably because I expected it and wasn't aware of winter frizz before because I had used tons of 'cones prior to cg. While I had read about winter frizz, I had thought that I would be exempt from it because i had decent control of my hair in the summer. Ha! I guess that shows that I didn't know much.

    I am glad that I started cg in June because I may have given up on it if I had started in December.

    The rest of me hates the summer heat and humidity though. :lol:

    My hair is not liking the cold. Just when you think you have this curl stuff figured out, the weather goes & changes.

    For real Brio!
    I just got a fab routine down now I have to load my hair up with conditioner and leave it in just to get barely hydrated hair. Come onnnnnnnnn Thurs (back to raining here as usual on Thurs yay!0

    I need to cut the crap and use heat on my DT's. I never notice the diff in humidity but I see the error of my ways in a dry week
