Moisture or humectants for dry air days

Well Ladies, I'm in Michigan where the temperature today was 40 degrees cooler than it was a week ago!

I've been studying up on humectants and humidity and I'm looking for suggestions on moisturizing products to use during low humidity, cooling (soon to be cold) days.

My current routine is to co-wash with DevaOneC, condition with it too, use [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]KC Knot Today[/buylink] as my leave-in (just wised-up to waiting until I've put in KCKT to detangle rather than doing it right after Deva OneC), then applying [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink].

Thanks to Suburbanbushbabe, I've begun doing dry twist-outs during the last week or so and even did a twist on freshly cleansed, wet hair. Both ways work! I'm extending my hair to 5-day hair. I've used Deva SIF on dry strands when the humidity was going to be high the next day. I've also used [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Spiral-Spritz-p-915.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Kinky-Curly-Sprial-Spritz-Natural-Styling-Serum]KC Spiral Spritz[/buylink] for a lower humidity day (it contains glycerine). Last night I wanted to see if I could pull off no twists (going to bed after second day hair). And this morning, all I did was wet my fingers, touch them to the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] and smooth through any frizzy spots for redefined curls in those areas. The rest of my hair looked great!

I've also added Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine on dry ends and wet ends to see what works.

Still, I'm wondering what cooler weather and lower humidity might require product-wise.

Any thoughts and/or suggestions?

    I think using humectants in dry weather will make you hair dry. I would use a good moisturizer and maybe some oil to seal.

    Moisture, products withe humectants will take the moisture that you have and suck it out. Humectants are good when there is already moisture in the air.
