longer drying time in high dews?

It seems my lp hair takes a lot longer to dry with high dews (>60°F) Has anyone experienced this too?

Could it be because of certain ingredients/product I use?
After co-washing with Daily Fix I used a rinse-out. Then acv-rinse. No LI. I styled my hair with FSG (only additives vit.E + 10 drops of lemonjuice for conservation and 6 drops of FO) in wet hair, plopped for a short time, then put in my regular hold gel (with glycerine), plopped for 20 minutes (maybe too long?) then topped it off with a few drops of BRHG.

2B-3A fine-medium/low porosity
2B/C-3A) fine - low porosity
Wash: Daily Fix,SMT, Kesham, Urtekram
RO: Motions CPR Li, Inecto Cocos co, AO GPB, KCTT
acv-rinse, sometimes honey-rinse

    Based on what I remember from physics classes, it seems normal that drying time is longer in high dews.

    Your hair dries by releasing moisture into the air. It evaporates. When the air is already more saturated with moisture (which is the case in high dews) this evaporation is way more difficult. Hence it takes longer.
    Hair type: 3b, normal porosity, medium texture

    co-wash and rinse out: Inecto coconut conditioner
    leave in: sHegron Aloe vera conditioner or Inecto coconut conditioner
    styler: L'Oreal gel / mousse

    Currently experimenting with home made flax seed gel (latest version with agave syrup and gelatine), home made protein treatments (latest version with gelatine and coconut oil)

    Yeah, high dews makes a difference with mine, as well as certain products, KCCC for one.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!
