I am so glad I'm not the only one with bizarrely dry, porous hair. It was doing a bit better for a while there, a month or two ago, but has since gone even stranger. It's like no matter what I do to it, it won't retain moisture.
At least it's got some stretch now, which is something. Used to snap as soon as I looked at it.
Oddly, nothing I do changes curl pattern, or even definition. It always looks like telephone cords all over my head, even if it's super dry. Weird.
3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.
