I was out and about today in the humidity and rain and my hair turned into a ball of frizz. I usually NEVER have a problem with frizz. Did my normal routine this morning. This is the first day of humidity and rain that I've used the B&A gel, so I really hope that's not the culprit. I was in an Ulta and picked up Set if Free, which made my hair 10x worse. And to boot, I had to go for an interview. Great first impression that made.
Anyways, I returned the SIF. Has anyone had good results with the B&A gel in humid weather and rain? Any recommendations to combat the frizzies? Not sure if I should try a different gel for the summer months- the B&A worked great here on the east coast last week, but no humidity. Or maybe I need a frizz serum of some sort, have no clue.
3a/3b~Currently: V05 Kiwi Lime/Tea Therapy Vanilla Mint for co wash, Suave Aloe or V05 Strawberries and Cream for co and leave-in, Burts Bees Super Shiny poo, EMBS, CK, re:coil, B&A/LA Looks Sport
It seems to tame frizzies for me.
Oh and here's something cool ive learned you can actually put your gel in the fridge during the summer so it still has that cooling effect which curly hair loves.
thought i'd share

I've only tried the B&A gel once or twice and it gave me next to no hold. The first time I tried it, my hair went almost completely straight. The seond time was better, but not as good as what I'm using now.
I'm going to try it again sometime and see if it works with a dab of a stronger hold gel over it. And as other have said, you might want to try Curl Keeper under it, too.
