Transitioning from winter to summer?

Does anyone else have trouble transitioning their hair from winter to summer? I know for me it means a change in products. I usually use Ouidad's climate control and humidity gel to keep my hair from frizzing but during the winter I was able to cut down to only one product with silicones. Also, when I used it again the other day, my hair didn't look too good. So what are all you curlies doing for the change in weather? And does anyone know of any other products to control humidity that are silicone free?
I would like to see some people's advice on this thread. My advice would be sealing your ends. Humidity kills me. I also love using aloe vera juice as a refreshing spray in the summer. I'm trying to get to the point where my routine doesn't change too much anymore.

I'm curious if the Loc method works in higher dews. I just started the Loc method this winter and LOVE it. I'm nervous for the summer thought.

I only use shea butter and canto's leave in+curl activator in my hair. The only difference between the summer and winter is that I add a bit more shea butter in the winter time to prevent my hair from drying out.
LOC totally works in the Summer! In my case, I use a heavier LI in the Winter than I do in the Summer. Also depending on the oil you are sealing with, you may want to go with a lighter oil or serum to seal.
