Im LP. After i shampoo and condition or cowash, I do better blotting excess water out of my hair with a microfiber towel before using a moisturizing conditioner leave in then sealing. My hair won't absorb anything while soaking wet. I need it damp. On soaking wet hair products are sitting on my hair.

All the Redken products I ever tried had silicones and my hair hated it because of I'm prone to buildup. Buildup will also affect how well your hair absorbs.
