    I think this is one reason why some people use dew points instead of relative humidity, but I can't remember exactly what dew points *are*.
    Yes, but if that matters so much, I don't understand why my hair only reacts the way it does to the sudden increase in temperature and doesn't flinch at the low temperatures in themselves.

    I remember you and I talking about this in the past and I was trying to get my head around it!

    My hair used to get staticy in frosty weather but it doesn’t seem to anymore (I’ve probably just jinxed it!)

    Interesting. I don't know, maybe this is an area where people's hair reacts differently. It's possible your hair isn't overly bothered by humidity? I haven't taken note of humidity for a very long time as my hair living in its bun largely tends to be unbothered

    Okay wow, you have an excellent memory and superlative thread-finding skills that was a blast from the past! I've not really thought about humidity since then; apart from the aloe Garnier hair food mask making my hair static I haven't noticed any real changes - or rather, not thought about any changes in connection with the weather. Any minor noticeable changes I just tend to deal with as they come. Here's hoping your hair stays static-free in frosty weather!
    Length goal well and truly met, now just seeing how it grows ...
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    I live in a very humid area. I mean, often in these days when I go outside my lashes get wet, not joking! (someone here needs a waterproof mascara) I can say that my hair in this climate feels more weighted down, like I can't WCC like I used to do at home ( = in Italy), expecially in winter time. And it tangles more and get oily faster. At home with temperaturs like this my scalp would be super dry and sensitive.

    Speaking for split ends, one of the good things about my hair is that it's not prone to them, so I've never had a lot of splits. I have to carefully search them to find some, even on my most-dead hair. I don't know what makes my hair to be like this, since there are several factor that should increase them (fine hair, wave-ish, long, a lot of tangles, damaged).

    Interesting! My hair doesn't mind high temperatures! I lived in Texas for a bit and had no issues. But cold? Yech

    Also love your signature picture @Ylva!!

    I have a daft memory for not very useful things, and a useless memory for useful things!

    As for split ends, my hair is very prone to them. I’m hoping that it’ll fare better when it’s completely virgin. I haven’t been able to wear my hair up much because of migraines so that will probably limit how long I can grow, but I’m happy with a compromise as long as I can get to MBL-ish.

    I have to protect my hair from sun and wind because even minimal exposure will make it split. Luckily I like head scarves!

    Unfortunately yes... The longer (and older) my hair is the more split ends I'm dealing with. If I S&D'd them all I think it would take a couple of inches off my length.

    I'm coming from another spectrum- I don't have split ends, I don't get them. None.
    Maybe I'm just lucky and yes, my hair is not very long
    When this topic comes up I just want to speak up my mind and say that I feel that S&D is doing more damage then benefit.

    I don't S&D, and I'm glad I can skip that! The only thing that make my hair split is flat iron.
