Thanks for the feedback Goober!
Many of these things sound like my hair. I'm still learning, but I i use a rinse out and leave in that are heavy with oils, my hair gets....a bit oily?? it isn't really weighed down. I don't know the right word. Oily(ish) but NOT moisturized. My hair is also extremely fine. I think my hair prefers hard water too. My hair did great last summer with honey and humidity (not super humid in my area). Sounds familiar.
