My hair is fine/low porosity. It prefers the more natural products from the online, boutique type companies. I use minute amounts of really rich products. It frequently takes a few hours after my hair is dry for the product to absorb. Generally, my hair gets better as the day goes on.
Don't know if it's a low porosity issue--my hair doesn't like a lot of chemicals. I stay away from many, such as polyquats. Overall, it doesn't like butter/oil alone, but does like it in products. Doesn't like the heavier oils, like castor and mineral--alone or in products.
