high dews and UFD Curly Magic or Spiral Solutions Curl Enhancing Jelly?

I live with very high dew points and do not like hard hold gels so I wonder what some experiences are with these two products. (I am also looking into Marie Dean products as well).

Maybe I need to accept the frizz as part of Florida living.

My hair doesn't like the chemicals in the gel products, so I use a lot of the jelly products. One thing I'd suggest is that you "seal" your hair. Using a minute amount of a really rich product (some people use oils or butters, but my hair doesn't care for that) that takes a while to absorb helps keep moisture in and prevents your hair from absorbing the moisture from the air. I think it works for really high and low dew points.

I don't really use these products for high dews but for low dews since neither contain glycerin. Both are great products! I do think the Curly Magic has a tiny bit more hold on its own though.
