how do you style your hair when it is raining?

Its been raining more often than not here in texas, and i'm finding that my normal routine just isn't cutting it, no matter what when its raining.

Any tips? I refuse to 'bun' my curlies just because the clouds are crying...
Same as when it's not raining, but I use different products in humid/high dewpoint weather. I want to equalize the amount of moisture in my hair with what's in the air so I tend to use humectants (stylers that contain some glycerin, and butters). Once I do that, no frizz!

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
Ugh, I hear you! We went dry all summer and I had a great routine going, this rain is really throwing a wrench into the works.

I pretty much shelved all my creams and puddings. I go with a lighter conditioner - like the Suave that I'll use for a co-wash, I'll use that as my conditioner. And some things that didn't work when it was dry - like Curl Keeper and some lighter weight gels - seem to work good in the rain. I also take my plop down earlier....if I leave it in for more than an hour, my hair will still be sopping wet. Ick.

CG since 2/07 and loving it!
Last week when it was raining here in TX I used GDLI, with HEBE Mousse and HETT Gel and my hair was pretty much frizz free!!! I couldnt' believe it! When I went to pick up my curlmart order at the office, one of the girls actually complemented me on how awesome my hair looked and she was impressed that there was no frizz even with all the rain!

Today is another story... I used products w/ glycerin and my hair is a frizzy mess.

* Hair appears to freak out with glycerin
* Diffuser Dependent

Living Proof No Frizz Curl/Wave cream has done really well for me in rainy weather. I do get some shrinkage, but not really frizz. Also, I carry a stand-by Flexi-8 or other clip to pull my hair back, just in case.
