Can you refresh my memory on the whole dewpoint thing again?

Very cool site.

Dewpoint here is 71. Air temperature is 82. Not much of a difference but if I read the site correctly that's still pretty sticky.

This is really awesome information to have. I seem to recall a thread about dewpoint a few months back but it was still freezing here so I didn't read it as closely as I could have.

I'll switch up to my Biolage Gel or HEBE tomorrow if it's like this again and see if that does anything different. Although it still looks great, my gel is long gone (Didn't get any crunch today to scrunch today.) So i expect it to start poufing fairly soon.

Now that my hair is totally dry and I've been out in the #@!#! wind, my hair looks a little wet.
