I know I should avoid humectants in styling products during certain seasons. Does that include avoiding them in leave ins too?
2c/3a, botticelli/s'wavy, thick hair
Devacuts 3.5.14, 7.16.15
CG 9.11.14, on & off for years before

HGs: SM Curl & Shine shampoo, Head & Shoulders co-wash, GVP or SM conditioner (RO), Yes to Carrots condish (leave-in), and LA Looks Sport gel
If you're sensitive to humectants in high or low dewpoints, they're usually fine in rinse out products but could be problematic in squirrely dewpoints.

I guess if you are sealing your hair it might not be as big of an issue. YMMV and trial and error is the only way to know!

I am sensitive this way and avoid humectants in my leave in products most of the year. We seem to only have optimal dews for about 4 months total during the year. (Too bad they aren't all on consecutive days!)

Mod CG since 11/2012. My waves occasionally look best when combed out, so you can pry my combs from my cold, dead hands
