Default Is there anyway I can weasle my way out of what nature gave me?

So my hair is naturally porous. Or, at least, that's what I assume, since it's never been colored, rarely been heat treated (save for a year of straightening only my bangs, but that damage has mostly grown out), and...well, yeah. That's about it.

It's always been fine, but I remember there was one point in time when it felt like it had a little more...substance, I guess. A little more movement. It was sort of heavier, in a sense. I don't know how to describe it, but I guess it felt more "normal porosity" than "high porosity". Or maybe I'm remembering wrong.

Anywho, I really want that, for my hair to be a little stronger and swingy-er and feel less delicate. I know I shouldn't hope for too much of a radical change, since my hair has always been and probably always will be fine, but can I fix the porosity? I give it PTs and I condition a lot, which seems to help, but not in the way that I'm hoping for. I don't currently have a DT - I just have a moisturizing condish - would a DT help?

Thanks for any help! It just recently dawned on me that I have high porosity hair, so suddenly I'm re-evaluating my approach to my locks.
