Conditioner types for Summer? Help!!

Hi there,

I'm new on here. I'm super confused about products I should be using in the winter and which I should be using in the summers.
Summer is pretty bad here (NYC humidity is absolutely disgusting, I must say).I use the same products year round since I don't really know the different.
What are some pointers on what I should look for when picking leave-in conditioners and stylers for either seasons?

I currently use: Kinky Curly Poo (every 2 weeks)
As I am Co-Wash (every 2 - 3 days)
KC Knot Today as a leave in.
Organic Coconut Oil leave in treatment (once a week)

I have pretty long hair. It's a mix of 3c on my roots and towards the front of my hair and the rest is 3b.


There's a fairly current thread about what to do with winter coming. You could try to search it out.

For me, I mostly use the same products, but an extra layer when the dewpoints are low. When dewpoint is higher, I use a leave in OR curl enhancer with a jelly product. When the dewpoint is lower, I use a leave in AND curl enhancer with a jelly product.

Hair properties are the best way to choose ingredients/products. Here's a link to help you with yours Curly Hair Basics | Live Curly Live Free Once you determine your properties, you can look for others with hair like yours and see what they use.
