I live in eastern Alabama and we have very high humidity and dew points here during most of the spring, all of the summer and most of the fall. Since going modified CG at the beginning of last month, I've been cowashing, using Suave as a leave-in, sealing with olive oil and then topping it off with a Suave gel that contains two types of humectants. I also do a weekly homemade protein treatment. While my hair has most definitely improved since starting this routine, it's still not very soft and my ends tend to be very frizzy starting on day 2.

What are y'alls routines/tips/experiences with curls in high humidity/high dew points?

Also, are there an budget friendly products you recommend?

EDIT: I am 2c/3a, fine texture, medium density, medium porosity, protein craving
