3B winter changes

wash, condition, drying: My hair routine is the same except I spend more time drying my hair.
Diffuse in small sections until mostly dry. Get dressed. Then I diffuse until my curls are dry.
I do this because if I go outside with wet hair it will literally freeze.
Is there anything different about your routines?

    My routine stays the same whatever the season/weather. I don't change products either.

    Most of the year in DC is super humid. Except for 2-3 months in winter where it's dry as the desert. I've switched to no poo instead of low poo and curl cream instead of gel.

    The best things for my hair in winter weather are simple oils and herbs. I use cheap VO5 conditioner to cowash and on days that I deep condition with castor oil, avocado oil, or Ayurvedic herb rinses and masks I use a little Avalon Organics lavender shampoo in water to wash it out. I use flax gel made with essential oil and aloe (just a bit) as a curl keeper.

    I have a lot of trouble using bought products. There's a bottle of SM C&H milk in my bathroom that I want to love but my hair doesn't like it. I can't use coconut anything, I guess. And, I don't use Deva B'lieve-in in the winter since it's got glycerin. I didn't know what the problem was until I read about glycerin in dry climates - I don't use a humidifier in the winter.

    I suppose it's good that I can get off cheaply, but I love trying new things.

    I use the same products year-round. However, I deep condition more and do overnight treatments during winter.

    Some of my favorite products have been the cheapest. Olive oil is like magic for my hair. I tried some fancy schmancy oils, but nothing worked like $3 cooking oil, lol. The very best high humidity gel for me is LA Looks. $3.59 for a great big container at Giant.

    I tried something new for me the other night. I cleansed with CJ daily fix, then after the shower I plopped for about two minutes, and used Hask Argan oil hair treatment (about a dime size), then about a half dollar amount of CJ Beauticurls leave in, and finally only about a dime size of Deva Supercream. I loved the results.... very soft, touchable, and natural looking. I would like to find something for a little more frizz control though.

    Well, for me, during the summer I wash my hair a lot with clarifying shampoos. In the winter I use a moisturizing shampoo. But that's all that changes apart from bringing out the old hooded dryer. ;)

    Where did you get your hooded dryer and how much did it cost?

    During the summer I can get away with just conditioner as a leave-in and gel, but during the winter I have to add an actual leave-in too, and I usually use an oil as well. And then, of course, I diffuse. It's already snowing in some parts of Colorado here so I can't go out with wet hair at ALL :thumbdown:

    But that's about it! Nothing too huge, I don't think!
