Hello Tosha, I live in Tallahassee Fl. and a couple things that I have found for natural hair that receives presseing to fight against humidity is:
1) Your conditioner should not be heavily packed with humectants. Humectants draw moisture from the atmosphere which will cause the hair to revert quicker. Use a light conditioner such as Keracare Humecto for 5 to 10 minutes to detangle. Per pressing (once a week) alternate from light moisturizer (they are not very heavy and thick in consistency) to conditioner with protein and moisture (Affirm 5n1) to heal hair from excessive heat damage such as blow drying and flat ironing.
2) Bone dry blow dry
3) Styling products not heavy with creams or oils but light silicone gel (Silken Seal). Based on texture you might use a little cream press the size of a pea.
4) Inform client not to put any creams on her hair (most creams contain some form of moisture) but instead just wrap and if shine is needed through out the week (Silken Seal Liquid Sheen)
5) Oh yeah and it does have alot to do with training the hair as well

Weave or extensions whichever you choose to call them can be use for many purposes. Such as growing out chemicals and going natural, special occasions, or creating length or fullness. The experience can be a beautiful master piece if the right one is choosen for your hair. If not done properly what's brewing underneath could be a disaster. There are several different techniques available today such as: sewn, pole, net, lace, wax, bonding, and ponytail, etc.
First, you should have a consultation with a Haircare Professional to find out which technique will hold and will be healthier for the condition of your hair. There are several things that play an important role in choosing which weave technique is best for you. For instance, the condition of your hair or trouble spots, length, how long you want to wear the style, if you will be expose to water, products, how often you visit Salon, and most of all the Style itself.
In choosing the look and then the brand and style of hair. In choosing the look, I would suggest you mildly go for change. It's like you having long hair and you just get a cut with no thought of which cut will look good on you or fits your profession. All the same rules apply in deciding to get a Weave. Next, depnding on how long you want to wear the hairstyle and the look you want to achieve you decide whether to use human or synthetic hair. Most human hair purchased can be hot ironed, chemically treated, and cut. But synthetic hair on the other hand has its limits such as; no heat or water. Also, the brand is very important. The longer you are going to wear the hair the better quality of hair you should purchase, Remy means quality. There are so many manufacturers to choose from you should view different types of hair online at www.hairsisters.com before making actual purchase.
Last but not least, the style that you have selected for your new look. If you have a special occasion you should always do trial run before the big day. Take time into consideration because is a long process, depending on which technique was choosen for you.
