Default Love KY in summer and need winter product recommendation

I apologize if this has been addressed; I haven't been online here in a while, and I've been trying to search but keep getting error messages because "KY" is too short of a word and so is CK.

So, I got amazing curls all spring and summer using KY Jelly (which my friends think is hilarious) and KCCC + BRHG. Today the dewpoint is 31 (F). The combo still seems to be working for Day 1 hair but I know it's drying out my hair; my second day hair is getting really frizzy. I need a replacement for the KY. ANY advice at all?

I have kinda fine 3A hair and am too lazy to test for porosity.

Kristin

It could be because glycerin is the second ingredient in KY Jelly. If there's not enough moisture in the air for it to suck up it will take the moisture from your hair. If you can replace that with something with less glycerin, that may solve your problem.

Suburbanbushbabe,
Yep, I understand what KY is and why it isn't working, I just needed a replacement product!
