Please tell me your favorite styling products during the winter months. My hair is normally 2C except for in the winter, I can barely get 2B curls. I think I need to be using different styling products. 
2B/2C Color treated
Favorite products: Tresseme Undone Cond, GVP Cond, As I Am Leave-In, FSG, LA Looks gel, SM Deep Cond.

    I switched to CurlJunkie's Spiral Lotion this winter and it has done wonders!  I might even stick with it as it warms up, if my hair is fine with it.

    I use thicker products, but it could be the humidity in summer making your hair curl more. My hair looks different every day so seasons only depend on moisture for me.

    What helps me the most in the winter is to deep condition. I do it once every week or every other week. That helps my curls look a lot better.

    I would also make sure you use enough gel. Using quite a bit of gel helps seal in the moisture and give your curls structure. I've been using the Kenra Ultra Freeze Gel and really like it. It's nice and crunchy.

    I use the same products as summer, but I use a lot more during winter.  More leave in and more gel.  So far, so good.  I may switch to a cream enhancer instead of my clear serum if my hair seems to need it.

    I am loving Garnier Whole Blends Legendary Olive conditioner.  Super moisturizing, and it doesn't weigh my hair down. I've even been using it as a leave-in too.  I switch up my Devacurl Wave Maker for the Supercream in the winter too.. I lose some of my curl, its definitely too heavy for my fine hair, but it keeps my hair feeling hydrated and seriously cuts down on frizz. Worth it. 
    2C Fine, long hair, a ton of it. Blonde balayage. East Coast Canadian. 

    Wash: Live Clean Fresh Water Hydrating Shampoo
    Monthly Scalp Cleanse: Baking Soda/Conditioner/Peppermint Essential Oil
    CO: Garnier Whole Blends Legendary Olive Conditioner
    Styling: Devacurl Volumizing Foam, Devacurl Wave Maker, Garnier Curl Treat Jelly
    Refresh Day: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle, Devacurl Supercream
    Deep Condition: Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Treatment

    My whole wash routine is upside-down... detangling, rinsing, applying products, scrunching, diffusing... the bigger the waves, the better!
