Default How do you handle wavy hair in cold weather?

This winter my hair seems to be suffering exceptionally. Maybe it's also the fact that I am more hair-conscious and therefore notice it more.
Outside is very cold, under zero (under 30F) all the time, and quite some snow. At the office and home, is warm (over 20C - 68F) and very dry due to heating systems.

So, I was wondering: what do other wavies do during those cold months to handle the difference between outside and inside air and temperatures?

Do you DT more often? More protein? Wash it less often?

Also, how do you handle oil due to wearing hats for long?

I'm new and this is my first CG winter.
I use moisturizing products.
I avoid humectants (they steal moisture from hair in dry winter).
I've plaid around with sealers with mixed success. I haven't actually tried something specifically designed to seal the hair. That might actually work better. (imagine that)
My big tip is to get a humidifier. A humidifier(s) for the whole house would be great. If you only get one small one and put it in your bedroom your hair will get 8 hours of normal moisture a day.
