Hair that dries quickly is porous, not low porosity. The water sitting on your hair would indicate low porosity, but the quick drying time would be porous.
My hair isn't dense anymore (age and thyroid.) When I worked, I'd shower at 6, diffuse for a few minutes, not use any products and it the under layer would still be damp at 11:30.
