I hate summer! :( hair rant

curly girl Fla i lived in Orlando until last August, I live in Pensacola now and it seems like i need completely different products for both cities (i know this because i went to orlando for spring brake and none of the products that were working here in pensacola worked in Orlando)

ok, so i tried CK yesterday and layered HE set me up on top, I didn't love my hair, my curls were stringy and wet-looking and by the end of the day I lost definition i'm going to experiment more.

somebody mentioned loving jessicurl, i'm going to try her products again but last time i used them i got really soft curls that didn't last all day.

would you ladies please post your favorite summer combos.

thanks

In a place where dry and burned straight hair is so common my wild spanish curls are my greatest weapon!

Can I repeat my question about oils and Jessicurl -

if oils are a problem for some in summer (which I feel they might be for me) is jessicurl aloeba rich in oils or would it be ok? I know it depends on how my hair reacts but I'm just wondering whether conditioners with oils are also 'out'.

cleanse: OS shampoo. PureNuffStuff cleanser.
condition: Aussie 3MM. Jessicurl Aloeba.
style: B2Basics GreenTeaGel. T&G Curl Balm. JCarter Nourish&Shine.

I think it's important to keep the hair very well conditioned so the cuticle won't open up "seeking" the humidity in the air. Conditioners should be less rich than during the "winter" and if protein is not a problem heavier on it because it helps keep moisture in.

In any case, during the dry weather we face loss of moisture and somehow richer COs help conserve it but, for most, they are too much when the air gets humid and has a different "electric" charge. And during the summer we need to keep things simple while aiming to keep our hair as healthy as possible because apparently when the hair is in really good condition it has less tendency to frizz.

And finally, we need to keep in mind all our individual differences before assuming that what works for others may work for us so it's better to proceed with caution when changing products. We need to become familiar with ingredient names and their functions so when we read labels we don't end up with the same type of products.
