So does that mean your hair needs less hold in the cooler temps?

I guess I'm the opposite. So I tried the herbal essence set me up, clarified my hair, went easy on the conditioner and left out the leave-in and it is soooooo much better. Not quite as good as my winter hair - just need to tweak with it better.

I find I have to apply gel twice now: when it is wet and when hair is mostly dry to get good results. Not sure what I am going to use to freshen my hair up tommorrow though.
Occasionally, when it is extremely humid and I'm using a gel, I need to apply more when it is dry as well.
What do you mean freshen your hair? Like for 2nd day hair?
2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.
