I have similar hair texture to yours (from what I can tell) and I didn't like the L'Oreal Eversleek. It was too thin and didn't moisturize enough for me. It was like water.
I don't know if the straw-like feeling to your hair was due to the ACV or to the LI, but I never liked how my hair felt after that particular LI. My hair never has issues with an ACV, it always feels soft, springy, extra bouncy and light. I love doing an ACV.
That's me with FSG as my styler!!

3b. fine & thick, coarse, dry, medium porosity. Sucks up product and loves ACVs! FSG is my HG!
