    My head perspires more!!

    Is this an illusion caused by my hair holding the water longer, or is it that my head really sweats more? Or both? Why might this be? Because the brain more importantly needs to stay cool?

    Nope, it may be where your most acticve sweat glands are. Everyone sweats differently. There are hand and foot sweaters, arm pit and even back sweaters.
