Overnight routine for lower temps/dew/humidity?

LoveliamLoveliam Registered Users Posts: 318 Curl Connoisseur
When humidity/dews are higher, I am better equipped to know how to style my hair. Overnight I use a combo of water and Sweet Curls Crazy Curly Hard Hold Elixir, from Etsy.

When temps drop and I wash my hair, I will use Deva Supercream in place of BLeave-in as well as add in Deva Volumizing Foam with the Deva Ultra Defining Gel.

I notice though that when the temps drop I have a problem figuring out how not to get 2nd day frizz.

I have tried:
  • Deva Foam with water.
  • Water with a few tiny bits of conditioner plus hard hold elixir gel.
  • Water with a few tiny bits of Deva Supercream plus foam
  • Water plus a combo of foam and hard hold elixir gel.

Any suggestions?

IS it possible my hair does not like water in cold weather? If so, what would you suggest?

Help!!!

    I'm not familiar with these products, so I can't be super helpful, but what I will say is that when the dews drop, I need more oils in my hair products rather than more water. What was helpful for me last winter was to put about half a pump of argan oil on my hair at night. That seemed to make my hair be in better condition the next day. Maybe try something with oils?

    Interesting. I have not tried oils directly, but can.

    Do you make changes to what you are using when your hair is wet at all in winter, or not really?

    In the winter, I use a rinse-out and leave-in that are more oil rich than in summer. I also use less protein in winter. I also use a different gel, one that is not so hard hold. I feel like my winter and summer hair are completely different! But I have a friend who has fine 3b hair, and she said that she uses the same products year round. She is always struggling to get enough moisture, whereas I can get overmoisturized if I am not careful (especially in the summer).
