Hmmm....I responded to your post but it seems to have mysteriously disappeared. Anyway, I have highly porous hair too and I find protein treatments work well with my waves. There is a great PT by IAgirl on this forum. Do a spot test if you're concerned about how it will affect your hair. Good luck!
