Has anyone found that miracle summertime conditioner?

It's been reassuring to read that so many of us are having problems with the change of seasons. What I've learned here is that my winter conditioner is probably too heavy for the humid summer (makes sense -- I use a lighter facial moisturizer, why not a lighter hair conditioner?) and the frizz isn't necessarily dryness.

So I need a new conditioner for the summer. I bought Herbal Essence Totally Twisted as a co-wash, but it's a little thick, and I can't decide if it should be a heavy co-wash, or a light conditioner. I'm still experimenting.

Any ideas? I'm not cg, and I usually shop at Trade Secret, although I'd certainly try a "drug store" product. Thanks so much!

I'm liking Suave Naturals Ocean Breeze as a co-wash for the summer (I alternate shampooing w/ water or co-washing), but what's working best for me is the Garnier Fructis sleek 'n shine leave in. It's not too heavy and seems to control the worst of the frizzies. When it's less humid, I use the GF curl 'n shine.
Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.
Despite avoiding cones at all costs, I just couldnt seem to get my summer routine right. Then a few curlies on here (medussa and others) mentioned that cones do help with summer heat and frizz. So I started using L'Oreal Vitamino Color Protect, which has amodimethicone in it, and no frizz! It's not perfect, and I don't use it every single time, but it definately works better than my winter regime and conditioners. Also it smells gorgeous! And it really does help with my coloured hair.

I am having success with WEN Fig cleansing conditioner. I use one cleaning/conditioning cycle of Wen, leave it on for 3 minutes or so and rinse thoroughly. I can run my fingers through my hair now, easily (but I still comb to detangle). I then use Aveda Elixir as a leave-in

I use Jessicurl Aloeba in the summer, and rinse more of it out. In winter I use Aloeba on the top and Too Shea on the ends, and leave more in.
