Default Anyone else looking forward to more humid weather and high dew days?

I'm actually looking forward to higher dew days because in NYC in the winter, the wind and dry air blow my curls out. It's hopeless and I need to wear a tight hat against the wind.

We've had a very mild winter but still, I've styled my hair with big rollers because the dews still aren't high enough for me. Also, styling with rollers gives me more days between shampoos but I miss my curls.

Anyone else switch off between the seasons?

I'm not sure. I'm in the Hudson Valley are in NY. But I only started CG in November and I'm starting to wonder if my hair is going to start acting wonky as the weather gets warmer.

I am. My hair tends to look fuller in the summer because the humidity puffs it out.

Spring is actually my favorite time of year. The dews are higher, but not the humidity. My hair usually looks fantastic. In the summer, the humidity is quite high here and my hair is very frizzy. My daughter's hair, however, gets even more ringlet-y and awesome. Her hair loves the high dews and humidity; it's always looser in the winter.

I definitely am, since I only went CG last summer and didn't pay attention to how my hair reacted with the *slightly* higher dews (AZ afterall). It'll be interesting so see what kind of results I'll get.

I live in a desert so no humidity, which my hair loves. I hate the Phoenix summers because my crown gets sunburned and damaged.

I cant wait for the high(er) dews and more humid weather. My hair springs up in the summer, I'll take some frizz if I can get good curls.
