#1: Why do you stop using a leave-in during the summer?
I think I've read this three or four times lately on different posts, and I don't understand. (Although I'm ready to try anything since the humidity - and my frizz level - is on the rise again!)
I thought I read somewhere that your hair frizzes up 'looking' for more moisture...and that if it had enough moisture to begin with, it would have a fighting chance of not frizzing. So why does ditching the leave-in when it gets warmer help the frizz factor? And what (if anything) should I use in place of it? Normally I use I spray-on leave in by Aveda, but lately (thanks to the gazillion-page thread ) I started on the GF C&S.
"Things are exactly as they should be, all evidence to the contrary."
I think (others may correct me) that if your hair is in good condition, that most people tend to go with "lighter" or "less" products in the summer. I believe the reasoning has to do with the air generally being dryer in the winter time. I'm sure there are some who use a leave-in all year round.
I read somewhere on this board last summer that using a leave-in in the summer is like using a heavy cream on your skin in the summer. Your skin will feel dirty and coated and your hair will appear the same way. I don't remember if there was anything about frizz. Anyway, I'm one of those people who use a leave-in year round. I do use less product in the summer though, mostly because too much product will give me a coated feeling.
I still use a leave-in. I think some people worry about their hair getting weighed down in the summer, so they skip the leave-in. For me, the humidity makes my curls spring up, so they actually don't get weighed down as easily as in the winter.
