Which season does your hair look the best?

Now that I am going on my one year anniversary at NC.com, I've learned a lot about my hair.
I thought that summer would be the best season for my hair , but I discovered that my hair behaves the best in the fall. I've noticed that some curlies love the summer. So 2 questions,

What's your hair type? & what's your season? :)

    I put that it looks good all year round not because I'm vain but because I know what to do and not to do all year round to make it look good.

    But in terms of how healthy it actually IS and the least effort needed, definitely summer. I love the softness of my hair in summer and the humidity keeps it moisturized. In winter it is dry and so it is harder to avoid brittle hard hair and more work to get it to be soft.

    My hair looks much better in the summer. Alaskan winters are too dry and cold. :cry:

    Spring, Fall and Summer are my best hair seasons... Winter is not my friend (in terms of hair or anything else)...

    My hair looks ok except in the winter but I think it's because it hates hats.

    My hair looked good all year long when it was texturized, but then I went natural. So far, no regrets! I'm loving it and I'm having fun! :)

    It looks very healty all year long, but it's very curly on humid day. Hopefully, it'll continue to look good all year round once it natural for you, it didn't for me. All I know is that when I do have a great hair day, I feel as if i hit the jackpot! :)

    This is kinda hard for me to answer because ever since I started using Low Poo in December, my hair has been consistently good. So I'm going to keep my fingers crossed and say all year round. Only time will tell if I'm right.
    Modified CG since 4/04; DevaCurl Low Poo, One Condition and AnGell; Jessicurl DT; mostly 3B with some 3A (formerly fun&springycurls)

    Spring, summer and fall. But I'm really going to make an effort this winter. Then my hair can look great all year! :D

    I put other because I'm hoping it will begin to look good all year round but I've only known what to do and had it looking good since last end of summer/fall.

    I'm finally at a place where I know when my hair wants more moisture (it loves [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Too-Shea-Extra-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-105.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-too-shea-extra-moisturizing-conditioner]Too Shea[/buylink] in winter) and when it wants a little less conditioning (summer). I also need to clarify occasionally in the summer and have to wash every few days. I alternate between HCC and CO washes. I don't need to clarify as often in the winter and can go up to 5 days between washes.

    Now that I've made it through each of the seasons and am more aware of my hairs needs I'm hoping it will look good all the time! :D
    2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.

    My hair has been pretty great since going CG in February, so I'm guessing it will still be fine in Autumn, so I voted for "all year round", but it still seems happiest in humid weather.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    I had to choose fall because that's the only season here that isn't rainy (spring), humid (winter) or windy (summer). If I were to never leave the house, it would be the same year-round. But once I step out the door and have to deal with the elements...

    Winter would be 2nd best because I can use products to counteract humidity. And on spring days that it's not rainy, I'm fine. (Here in California we get all our heavy rains in the spring, often back-to-back storms.)

    Good point - the texturizing could be making the difference here - that could be why I did it! I think though when I was younger and natural, my hair still loved the humidity. I'll keep you posted.

    I love my hair in the spring and fall! I think it's because there is a little more moisture in the air, but not the overpowering humidity that summers have. Winters aren't great for my hair, but summer is the pits. Although this year I'm doing better since I started using a texturizing cream.
    I have 3A hair. I've discovered Jessicurl shampoo and Too Shea conditioner and I'm thrilled! Long-time LA Looks sport gel user.
