You don't mention your texture, but droopy curls usually indicates that it's time for a PT. It is probably over conditioned.
I've had highlights for a LONG time. I figure that they might be 5% of my hair, so wouldn't say that they are the cause for anything. Depending on the chemical used, they could cause damage and loose curl. However, I'd attribute a head of stringy curls to lacking protein (which would also help any damage caused by highlighting.)

Reason: Should have been texture, not porosity
