Default Low dew point help

Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to the curly-hair thing and have just gotten a routine that works for summer in the Ohio Valley (dew points 50s and 60s, humidity often 70s). Problem is, at the end of the month I'm going to Mount Hood, where it looks like the dew points are in the 20s and 30s! I have no idea what to change, or if I need to change anything. I'm tempted to pack my straightening iron and go back to my old style. Would you ladies take a look at the products in my sig and tell me if any would be bad to use in low dew points (I suspect the KY has to go because of the glycerin, but I don't know what else). Thanks!!
2c/medium texture, thickness and porosity

Currently using

Low-poo (two or three times per week): Burt's Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet shampoo
COwash/LI: VO5 Herbal Escapes Free Me Freesia, VO5 Tea Therapy vanilla mint clarifying conditioner
Condish: GVP conditioning balm
Syling: CK, FSG, KCCC, LALooks gel, iStyle heat protectant spray, KC gloss pomade

I'd look at reducing glycerin use in the low dew points and perhaps using more moisture if you can tolerate it.

if you click on my blog link in my siggy, there is a dew point page that may help you out.
Kiva! Microfinance works.
