    Yes indeed! If the dewpoints are between approximately 40-60, it is better to use a leave-in with humectants (glycering, honey, you name it). The humectants will help attract water (=moisture) to your hair. If the dewpoints are higher or lower, it is better to use a leave-in whitout humectants, but with anti-humectants (oils and/or butters). Take also your styler in consideration for humectants.

    Sealing is probably more needed in either low and high dewpoints than it is in moderate dewpoints.

    ^ Agree. Humectants are awesome for my hair in higher dews.. I seem to have the best hair in summertime.

    Some people use humectants in high dewpoints as wel (like sixelamy)!

    Are you also from Holland?
    I always buy conditioners from the internet actually, because there aren't really a lot of really good conditioners in the drugsstore in Holland in my opinion. I like the yes to cumcumbers (you can buy that at 'de tuinen'), but that hasn't got any humectants in it. You could add some honey to it tough.
