I think it all depends on the products that you use. I use a lot of rich products, so haven't DTed in years. My hair is fine, so I do A LOT of protein--use commercial PTs (CJ, SS and Elucence) which are also moisturizing.

Since your hair doesn't absorb product quickly, you need to be careful with how much of any product your put on when styling. Frequently, my hair is dry--but hasn't finished absorbing the products I used (we're talking hours later.)
