Honey is a humectant. It pulled moisture from your hair since there is none in the atmosphere.

Low-po hair generally does well with (gentle) heat. Be sure to get your hair wet with warm water to help open cuticles (or use a bs wash), apply conditioner then cover with a shower cap for the remainder of your shower to do a sort of team treatment. Rinse with warm water as well. (And an ACV rinse if you used bs.) then dry to about 75-80% with a diffuser. Do not touch it while it dries the rest of the way.

Do not use protein for a while and see if that helps.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
