My new styler is full of humectants, which used to dry me hair out during the winter months last year. Now, though, I seal my hair with argan oil after each shower, and it seems like that fixed it
They seem to balance each other out in my case.
Also, it depends on the weather. The Frizz Forecast here on NC.com is great for advice about whether to use humectants vs. anti-humectants depending on the dews and the day. For instance, today it recommended I use humectant products. Usually, though, to not have to worry about it on a day to day basis, I just seal with an oil to balance out humectants just in case, haha.
