Default Anybody else's hair liking the warmer weather?

After my hair totally flopping in January and February, it's finally starting to warm up around here and my hair is loving it! I'm actually getting curls & spirals again.

This picture is from Monday evening. I conditoned my hair with OneC, left most of it in, plopped, and then left it alone. Unfortunately, I shortly went to bed after taking the pic. Without any product, I'm not sure if these curls wouuld have lasted all day without frizzin' up alot.



The pollen is horrible, but spring is good for my hair!

WOW, those spirals are awesome! My hair is also liking this weather. I had to use a leave-in over the winter, which doesn't usually leave my hair as curly. Now I can't wait for the humidity, my curls thrive on it!

Wow those curls are ADORABLE! *jealous*

My hair likes this weather too...but I do need to use a bit more product to control it though...

Seriously, your curls were too much in that shot. So perfect, glossy!

Beautiful curls! And they look so soft!
My hair loves the warmer weather too. I don't have to fuss with it nearly as much. Which of course is kind of confusing after winter
I love when the warmth and humidity are back. Now if it would stay 70% humidity and 80 degrees all summer I'd be perfect!

thank you so much. I wish it would do this consistenly, but you know how that goes . . .

I know it's a silly thing to say, but sometimes my hair amazes me. It took me almost 40 years to realize this. I never knew how curly it actually was, and I never knew I could grow it out wihout it looking like a bush.

The colder, drier weather had me totally stumped on what to do with it. If it had stayed winter longer, I think I would have just started putting some jojoba oil in it and finger combing it. I kept trying different products, but without much success. I did manage to clutter up my bathroom more, though.

I've always wondered, if your hair is already in extreme condition, will the humidity not affect it?

My hair's been loving the recent weather. Incredibly soft ringlets and even second day hair.

Loving it!
