    I saw wind as a temporary setback while the dry cold is murder on my hair and scalp.

    Tough call. I voted for humidity, mainly because since I live in FL now, I can't seem to get a handle on it. It's muggy in the morning some days even.

    However, ocean breezes (read: very strong winds) are more disruptive to my curls than anything when they are looking great (when humidity isn't 2 billion percent). I know of a bunch of products my curls loved, but they couldn't hold up to the wind here.

    So for me, it's a 51:49 tie, humidity:wind.

    I picked cold. My hair just doesn't look as good in the winter. I love the way my hair looks in the summer...it looks bigger, fuller & a little wild.

    Wind for me! North-easter in Chicago is a killer. And I live on the lake.

    I picked humidity, because that's what gives me frizzy, flat-topped, too-short curls. (But I went to college in Pensacola Florida, which is often blustery wind + intense humidity, and that's the absolute worst!)

    My hair is always perfect when I visit Las Vegas or any desert location--shiny, bouncy, and full of body with no frizz. (Maybe I should move?)

    I'm not sure. I always have problems deciding if the weather I'm in is humid or not. My hair got very frizzy in San Francisco this week. It was cool and windy over there. Not sure if it was humid. I'm stupid like that.

    I had to pick Sun as it's the closest to my current DRY conditions. My hair still looks decent in all the other conditions EXCEPT the dry sunny climate of New Mexico. :evil: My hair actually prefers the more humid climates like Europe and the SF Bay Area (home). But this hot dry sun here just totally dries out my hair and fades my haircolor! :shock:

    Definitely rain - there's no stopping my hair from being ruined when it rains!
  • plinkplink Registered Users Posts: 103
    Cold cause if it's below freezing I'm afraid my hair will freeze and break. It's also dryer in the winter.
    I have finally realized I look my best when my hair tells me how it is going to fall, and I just make suggestions.

    Wind, without question. It causes dryness, tangles, splits, and frizz and unlike the sun, it has no positive side effects.

    Rain, rain go away. Come again some other day when I my hair doesn't have to look good. :wink:

    The rain never fails to make my hair freak out.

    Wind got my vote, but only just. I'd done my hair one morning and it looked really good. I stepped outside where there were fairly strong winds, and my hair turned into a massive frizzy, poufy disaster. It looked like I had brushed it.

    Second on my list is the cold. My hair just doesn't like it at all.

    I like a certain amount of humidity best.

    Wind ruins my hair, just blows the curls right out and makes it a giant, out of control frizz ball. Second would probably be humidity, makes my hair frizz and feel really dry by the end of the day.

    is it possible to choose all of the above? my hair seems to be horrid no matter what weather, or what i do to it...i'd straighten the heck out of it if i wasn't so lazy :lol:
    The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from.

    Another vote for cold, but probably only because the winter here is so dry. It's the dry conditions that make my hair freak out. Relative humidity above 80% is my good friend.

    Definitely windy. Think Fran Fine on her 'big hair' days!

    If the forecast is wind and I have to go out, then out comes the straightening iron.

    Wind is the worst! It never fails to give me dandelion-head hair. If I leave my hair even the slightest bit damp before going out in it, I end up with a fuzzy, tangled tumbleweed on my head.

    I'd have to say dry cold is second worst. My hair gets limp and crappy and my scalp gets dry and itchy. Yuk. I'm glad it doesn't happen too often here in Texas.

    My hair is different in different weather-but only BAD when it's windy! My hair is too fine and lightweight to hold curls in the wind unless I make it crunchy-and I'd rather have lack of definition than much crunch!

    While humidity ruins my hair, it's rain that get's me. I can fix humidity, plus my products help prevent damage from it. Rain, though, is unpredictable. It wets my hair, therefore rinses out product, leaving my hair in it's not-so-pretty natural state.
    My hair is stubborn. What I thought would help me only resulted in horrible, damaged hair. Straightening my hair is now the only reasonable thing I can do. So, I am no longer CG. Not until my hair gets fixed.
    Goal- Long, shiny locks! Currently shoulder length when curly. Goal is to reach around right below chest area. Wish me luck! :)

    Wind for sure. I can keep my hair together through pretty much everything but wind. Although actual rain is pretty darned hard to deal with.
