I've never hated summer before

But yeah now I pretty much do.

If I use no product then I get beyond dry and frizzy. If I use a little bit of product, I have a little moisture but still get frizzy. If I want to lay the frizz down, I have to glob on the product and then I can't get even the tiniest bit hot or my products will be running down my forehead and neck. I think if I swam in a pool my product would clog up the filter.

I can't even remember what the heck i did last summer but I really miss the summer before last when I washed, dried, straightened and went on my way. No frizz, no slimy sweat. Just normal hair, normal sweat, normal summer. I dread going outside now.

I am feeling similarly about summer. I like warm weather but the very high dews are murder on my hair. I'm trying to figure out what to do - harder hold gel? Straighten my hair until the dews normalize?

My hair is too short to pony tail.

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

Ttoosday, have you tried a little bit of pomade to smooth the frizz? I have found that if I use just a tiny bit of pomade, the weightiness of it holds the frizz down.

Therese1, thanks for the tip. It's worth trying. I have some pomade and I'll try it on the very next high dew day.

Therese1 - Oh man just when I thought I was done buying products! I haven't tried a pomade yet. Thanks for the tip. I'll look around for one on my next trip to the store. Any good drugstore brands that you recommend?

I haven't used any drugstore pomades--I have a lot of chemical sensitivities and so generally stay away from drugstore products. I've used Sevi's Blue Yarrow Pomade, which is really waxy and hard, and Intelligent Nutrients' pomade, which is more oily and soft. I've also used plain shea butter, if you have any of that around. You need hardly any pomade or shea butter, just a tiny bit. It's easy to get too much on and make the hair greasy. I generally use it to scrunch out the crunch.

Back when my hair was high porosity, I would use the Intelligent Nutrients pomade as a sealer on my wet hair when I was putting product in. I put it under my gel, if I recall correctly.

I hope you can find something that works for you. When my hair was high porosity, I was amazed at how it could handle some really heavy products, at least on wet hair (on dry hair was another story). Maybe a pomade would help seal your hair off from the humidity.
