Would you rather - high humidity or extremely low dew point?

Well, I started CG in September, where the humidity had pretty much dissipated up here in the northeast. So I have been on my CG journey in dry climates, low dews, etc. I have been frustrated with my fine hair going flat and limp.

So I was in Florida last weekend where it was pretty humid and WOW, my hair curled up like crazy!!! None of my products were working. I was one big curly poof ball. Not having a strong-enough gel aside, it was cool to see how curly my hair could get.

I guess my real question is to the curlies who have been doing this longer than me ... what is easier to deal with for you personally? The high humidity or the low dew point? I know it depends on properties, etc, but I'm just curious what everybody thinks. How much of a change do you see in your hair based on seasons?

Im from texas And the humid here is pretty high but i do like it ...i feel like humid makes my hair more curlier
I live on the gulf coast, so always humid and I have been fighting frizz my whole life. But I recently went to a wedding and had to deal with low dew and my hair was flat. I think I would rather deal with the humidity, if I had to choose.

I live in Southern CA and am originally from NY. I much prefer the lower humidity here. I grew up with lots of bad hair days due to humidity.
High humidity! My hair loves it.

High humidity. My hair loves it and curls up like crazy. And now that I have the products that keep frizz at bay it is better at that time of year than it used to be. My hair is limper during the winter.

High humidity. In from Florida, and with a hard hold gel my hair looks fine. I moved up to Kentucky, and occasionally when it's winter time my waves can go a bit flat. That said, during winter I can also skip my gel and just use a leave in and cream, which is easier.
