summerhair.jpgHate your hair during Florida's seemingly endless summer? Join the club. No amount of straightening, slicking and scrunching can beat the heat and humidity of our subtropical paradise.

And bonus: Former Deal Diva Dalia Colon dishes about how hair can get between African American women and exercise -- and her personal evolution from straight bob to curly.

How does your hair weather the summer? Do you change up styles like me?
