I have type 3A, high poristy, med. density, coarse texture and live in Chicago, which hair products?
Have you tried Re:coil? I bet it would work well for you. Mixed with a little Curl Keeper, it's even better!

I bought it from Sally’s but I’ve seen it at Walmart, too! It might be trial and error to see how much you need for your hair. My hair gets pretty dry! When my hair is wet, first I put a small amount of leave-in conditioner (or I spray it with water if it is a day I don’t wash my hair), then some argan oil hair treatment, and then the combination of the two things in the link. This LOC method is amazing. I’ve been doing this and it helps a lot with the frizz! http://longing4length.com/2012/10/the-l-o-c-method.html For days when i don't wash, I mixed up my own curl refresher, mainly following this recipe. http://www.curlynikki.com/2010/08/whats-in-your-spritz-bottle.html I had to dilute it quite a bit so it wasn't too heavy but it works well!
