Summer leave-ins/Fillers?

I am having such a hard time with fillers/leave-ins during the summer months. The gel I MUST use is BSRHG, so that part I am good with, but my hair just seems to be very intolerant of too much moisture, if that's even possible. In the winter, I am great with DC B"LeaveIn. I LOVE that stuff, but even that in the summer is just WAY too much and tends to weigh me down/make my stringy/greasy. Re:Coil is too much. KCKT is too much. I need something VERY light weight. I've tried to just condish in the shower and forget the filler/leave-in, but my hair just doesn't FEEL needs something before the gel.

My hair type is ALL OVER the board. I get tight springs in weird places, but straight underneath and everything in between everywhere else. It's a PITA especially since I am low porosity.

Is it just me that has issues in the summer with these things?

    I really like CJ smoothing lotion leave in, it's very light and slippery.

    A good leave in conditioner to try is the SM JBCO Leave In Conditioner. It doesn't leave any buildup, or weigh my curls down, or ever leave them feeling greasy either. Plus, it comes in a big 16 oz. Tub, and Sally's is always having sales on SM products quite frequently. And, so does Walgreens too.
