Fall/Winter Hair

I just wanted to know how people's hair has adjusted to the fall-winter season, mostly. In my case, TN suddenly started to work magic, and somehow, no matter the RO, my hair came out relatively frizz-free and soft w/o LI (in fact, the LI seemed to make it more frizzy...)

I was almost terrified of over-conditioning because of the tremendous increase in moisture, but that fear has since died. I have officially decided that about this time fall, when the weather's about 60-70 degrees (I'm a CalGirl), is the best time for my hair.

Has anyone else experienced a drastic change in hair with the coming season? What's your best hair season?

    I know the change in temperature has built up my hair's tolerance for protein or something, because I usually can't use too much silk protein or coconut oil but it's been drinking both up like it's the nectar of life. I've also had to break out thicker leave-ins, can't get away with not sealing (well I could, but I'd have to moisturize more and I'm lazy), hair grows slower, blah blah BLAH.

    I get annoyed with winter because I have to cover my head a lot more due to my hair taking forever to thoroughly dry and me not blow drying.

    I've been doing twist outs since it got colder and that's working well for me. Switched from TN to GFPC and also using a heavier gel for my twists. Twists /twistouts keep my hair super moisturized so they're great for the winter. Also I don't have to go outside with wet hair which I love.

    My hair is doing fine during the colder days. I keep my hair in protective hairstyles. I rarely let my hair out due to breakage i am currently dealing with.

    I think Fall is my best hair season... It's not as humid so my hair doesn't frizz as easily, and I still do wash n' gos without worrying about my hair drying too slow in the cold bc I use diva darling towels (they're awesome!!). In the past during real winter (temp. highs at 35 or lower), I have done a lot of protective styling esp. cuz my hair dried so slowly.... But now since I have my DD towels I think I'm gonna try to maintain my WNG in the winter too cuz it keeps me warmer than pulling my hair back!
