Need a hair detective!

Frizz forecast says that my curls will be tricky today, but I'm finding that these conditions (87 degrees, 11% humidity, 41 dew point) give me the least frizz and best clumps. Does anyone know how I can use this information to figure out what that means about my hair and what properties I'd like in products? For example, does this give me a clue about my hair's porosity?

Thanks in advance!

    Frizz forecast is wrong. The dew points are right, and all the conclusions are wrong.

    41ºF is a moderate dew point, which means it's right in the sweet spot, so it's no wonder your hair is at its best. 40-60ºF is considered the moderate dew point range (though my low porosity hair seems to do fine in dew points up to about 63ºF), in which your hair needs moderate amounts of both conditioner and gel.
    Peace,

    If you need advice to go with the Frizz Forecast dewpoint information, the linked article on the Frizz Forecast page, The 411 on Dewpoints and Humectants, has decent suggestions. I also like the Pittsburgh Curly dewpoints page, as it has good info and advice too.
