Huh. As usual, I am the reverse of everyone! I like CK in the winter, especially when it's cool & dry & not humid at all. CK doesn't do much for me when it's humid. When it's dry & cool, it holds down frizz & works like a gel for me.
I usually use it over a leave-in, which eliminates some of the crunch. Also, if I use too much, my hair gets really limp and greasy-looking. I use a quarter-size blob or 2 for barely-shoulder length hair (when dry). It dries crunchy but I can usually work that out...also, wearing a winter hat seems to kill the crunch.
