Not sure how you decided on what you need??? You say you're confused and I am after reading your conclusions.

The "property" page on is the only place that I've read about low porosity and not liking protein. You may want to do some reading here: Live Curly Live Free - Home It's generally coarse hair that doesn't like/need protein. My hair is fine/low porosity and never met a protein it didn't like. I do at least one PT a week and use a lot of products with protein.

Most of us stay away from mineral oil and other petroleum products.

Why do you think milks are light products and gels are heavy???

I never DT. My hair is in such good condition that the shampoo guy at the salon where I go won't condition it! (He just doesn't "get it.")

If your location is humid all year around, you may want to search and try "sealing." It's good a way to maintain the moisture in your hair in really high or low dewpoints.
