I just glanced at the article. It's not what my experience has been. My hair is fine, low porosity, LOVES, LOVES, LOVES protein and doesn't need DTs.
Fine hair and porous hair generally like/need protein. Just because your hair is low porosity, doesn't mean you need to stay away from protein. It's coarse hair that doesn't like protein. I do a PT at least once a week in the summer and 7-10 days in the winter. I use a lot of products that contain protein.
