I don't feel the need to try mineral oil yet because it's never humid here but I do have it in mind if I take a trip somewhere more humid like Florida. Or Texas. It's a little frightening to think of how my hair might react in the humidity. It honestly gives me a shiver.
MO works for me in both high and low dews bc it makes such a good barrier. I have no problems co-washing it, but I do low poo every now and then, so that could play in.

EVCO penetrates, too, but I find it works when it's warm out!

I hear you on worrying about hair reacting to travel! I'm heading to England for 2 weeks and I have no clue what exactly to pack or how it will react!!
Will definitely be packing a lot of hair ties and headbands! Lol!

I definitely will be packing my duckbill clips so I can cross clip!!

Hmmm, maybe I will give it a go then. The stronger the barrier, the more predictable the hair. At least you're going in the Summer, not the Winter. I'm jealous. I'd so much rather visit England than Texas or Florida. Oh man, I'd buy myself a fabulous hat to ensure I'd look very glamorous in vacation photos. . .
