Porous Curlies, What is your High Dew Point Regimen?

sheilacurlsheilacurl Posts: 1,240Registered Users
I've been doing the CG method since 2009 and I've never stopped learning new things! If you have any high dew point product recommendations, techniques, tips or tricks, please share them here.

Do you find you still need to use a leave-in conditioner under stylers? Less or More? Are you sealing your hair with an oil and if you are, which one(s) are you using? Can you use any stylers or leave-ins with glycerin without issues? Are you doing more protein treatments now? Do you have any pointers for fighting humidity induced frizz?

Thanks! :glasses8:

    In all the years I lived in S. Florida, which is hot and humid for at least 8 months of the year, what saved me from frizz was using less oil and my trusted LALWL gel. I had it on when I arrived there one month ago and, man, that hot and heavy air hit my lungs so strongly I had to catch my breath... but my hair held on! :thumbup:

    Ahhh I don't seem to have high dews as my humidity is only 19% so far.

    @KaZenner, you need to check the dew points rather than the relative humidity. We've had dew points far above 70 F around here lately.

    But dew isn't calculated by temperature and humidity percentage??? High humidity and high temperature means high dew point.

    ETA: My dew point has been low on slightly entering mid range but today we have a likelyhood of rain so stats has changed to temp: 77 humidity: 43 and dews in 54. My hair has started to seem oily. Others like rain. My roots become flat if rain touches my head. Go figure!

    Dews are a combination of temperature and relative humidity, yes. But a low humidity and a high temperature can still give fairly high dew points. Also, remember if you are looking at celsuis or fahrenheit...

    @KAZenner1990 - Humidity and dewpoint both refer to moisture, but they aren't the same thing. In simplest terms, humidity is a measure of the amount of moisture in the air. Dewpoint is the temperature at which the moisture contained in the air will condense and fall to the ground either as dew or fog.

    The past few weeks I've had comfortable temps /high humidity /high dews, comfortable temps /midrange humidity /high dews, high temps /humidity /dews, cool temps (59F) /high humidity /optimal dews, and even high temps /comfortable humidity /optimal dews. If you're interested, I can pull the actual numbers and post if it'd be helpful.

    This blog post is an excellent explanation about dewpoints, humidity, the difference between the two, and how they relate to haircare. This article on nc.com is also excellent, though a bit more complicated: The 411 On Dew Points & Humectants . A quick place to find dewpoint, temp. and humidity is the Frizz Forecast here on nc.com, but don't go by the product recs there as they are inaccurate. Instead, use the recommendations in either article I linked.

    That actually means you never know your dews until you check lol. I know the difference between them but I thought I could.calculate dews from temp.

    Oh, sorry about that. You can calculate dewpoints if you know the temperature and humidity, but it takes algebra. This page discusses that: How to Calculate Dew Point Using a Dew Point Humidity Formula or Psychrometric Chart. This page will do the calculation for you in either Fahrenheit or Celsius: Temperature, Dewpoint, and Relative Humidity Calculator. I'm not really a math person, so personally, I don't want to have to do daily algebra to decide what to do with my hair. I highly prefer just checking the Frizz Forecast (I use the 5 day to get a daily average) to check on dewpoint.

    I usually check the Frizz Forecast a lot to see what my poor-ous hair will be wanting that day... But something didn't seem right this week (it felt like more normal dews when the forecast was predicting high dews!).

    This week at least, Frizz Forecast was predicting completely different dew points than forecast.weather.gov (NOAA's site), at least for my region. Just an FYI.

    My hair also frizzed once during a normal dew (11 ºC), but I had frizz on that day because the humidity was over 90%.

    So maybe your hair reacts more quickly on solely humidity than high dews?


    Right now we have dew point 40-60 range and 31% humidity. I haven't done a pre poo treatment for quite awhile. Maybe I should try that before cleansing.

    For me if the dews go over 50 I start to get high-dew frizz... I read somewhere that the more porous you are, the lower the "ultimate curls" range are, as your hair is more sensitive to the moisture in the air.

    Jimpie's right. I have heard that more porous curlies can start reacting to dewpoints as low as 50 as if they're high dews, where less porous curlies have that issue more when dews climb above 60.

    You might try sealing with a tiny bit of a straight oil between your LI and gel. You could also add a few drops of oil to your LI before applying, or try a LI with some oil (or other anti-humectant) in the formula.

    I haven't perfect my routine yet, but this is what have made it possible for me to have doable second day hair at least, even though it is still more frizzy:

    * More of my Garnier Repons Conditioner. It's the only conditioner I have that currently works as a leave-in. I'm really considering trying to seal with oil though, as I think it is te oil and butter in this conditioner that makes the magic happen, and I might well need more of that. So, sealing I think will be good.
    * Gel. Like a lot of it. I'm currently adding about 1½ dl minimum of flax seed gel everytime I wash my hair. Yes, that much. With some honey in for extra hold. And then hard-old gel on top. I essentially bath my hair in gel. But, mostly flax seed gel as it is easier to apply without frizzing up my hair.
    * Partially rewetting every other to every morning. Wet hands, "hug" the hair, until it's wet on the outside to re-active the gel and then scrunch up some curls. Fingercurls are amazing to deal with the worst extra frizz on the outer layer.

    (The good part with huge amounts of gel, if it looks bad, just hit a bathroom, wet your hands and finger-curl the worst parts. Takes a minute or two and make wonders, and no need to bring any product with you either)

    Now that the warmer weather has finally hit I've been able to ditch the creme and I've been able to halve the amount of oil I use as well. I have had to start using a harder hold gel on top of KCCC as well. Also I've noticed that my hair needs to be wetter now when I put my products in as well.

    If the dew point is 60+ and occasionally cowash, then a styler that is medium to strong hold is all that's needed. I combine the protein and deep conditioner treatments during this time. Frizz is not difficult to control.

    If the dew point is below 60, then I have to use a leave-in and a sealant even if I cowash most of the time. Frizz is a real challenge at this point, and a soft hold styler is best since it won't dry out my hair. Protein treatments are put on hold.

    For the past week, this is how it's been (approximately) where I live:

    It sounds like Mineral Oil is the best oil to seal out humidity in high dews (and seal in moisture during low dews) in porous hair:

    I used to use M.O. but stopped after finding coconut oil worked even better in my hair and doesn't bug my skin.

    When I used M.O., it made my hair greasy and dry at the same time, and actually created more frizz. But if it works for some people, go for it!

    Yes, it might not be ideal for anyone who strictly cowashes. I am loving Jessicurl Cleansing Cream which has Cocamidopropyl Betaine as the 4th ingredient so that should take care of any build up that mineral oil may accumulate.

    Update:

    So I sealed with mineral oil yesterday after work (after my leave-in and before my clumper + gel) and my ends feel noticeably better than they did on previous second day hair without sealing. I did the exact same routine that I've been doing for months.

    I'm excited about my hair again. Summer, bring it on!
