Oh the humidity!

Ok humidity probably happens in Scotland like once in blue moon. It gets warm, it gets wet, but very very rarely is it warm and muggy like it is now. And has been for the past 3 days. I'd hoped my one bad hair day would pass and I wouldn't have to think about hair products for humidity but as I know resemble a poodle, I'm calling out for help!

What do I need to do to fight humidity? Have a rich conditioner? Or a light condiitoner? I'm assuming very strong hold gel will help, but do I want lots of moisture in my hair or not?

The conditioner I used last night was MOP for fine hair, and it wasn't rich at all but I needed that to right overconditioning. My hair still feels soft today so it's not dried out but i have that awful really tightly frizzed up frizz all over my canopy. Y'kno how frizz can be light, and kinda wavy frizz? this is like 'fro frizz

Personally, I cut back on the rich conditioners when the weather gets warm and humid, and I skip the leave-in. My styling gel seems to keep its hold better that way.
Do you have Herbal Essences gels there? The strong hold one is good for that. Sometimes I mix it a little heavy styling cream too.

Basically, use enough gel to get crunchy. That zaps the frizz, mostly. Until August here that is.....
2C in most weather, but in summertime I impersonate a 3 very very well!
I actually need a leave-in to fight humidity. I like AG fastfood or GF curl & shine. They both have the A-cone, which helps me with frizz.

The cone leave ins give me good frizz help but barring that (since I know she doesn't use cones)
I've left off the leave in, I shampoo with a sulfate free poo daily and I sulfate about once a week.

It's hot and humid here from now until........ hmm November usually.

Now my hair isnt' as curly as yours but that's what I'm doing and will be doing for months to come. Welcome to my breathing pea soup world

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Hmm that's interesting - cones help humidity. I do have gels with water-soluble cones like dimethicone copolyl, and i notice they make my hair shinier and less frizzy. and i do use a sulfate about once a week and mild cleansers that could remove amodimethicone. i just found with a-cone that my hair fluffed up as if cone buildup straight away. very weird. but when i was in town y'day and my hair wa s a poodle fluff ball from the humidity i saw a few natural curlies with perfectly shiny, frizz-free curls. i was wondering what they had used and i'm guessing it was a cone laden product (since most curly hair products are.) it makes you really wanna use cones a lot! i'll dig around my box of products nad see what i can find. thanks for the tips! i bet once i get it sorted it'll go back to being warm and dry or cold and damp.
