I have 3b, coarse, long, high density, low porosity hair. Now with coarse you have to watch protein but with high density you are recommended to use heavy butters and thick creams. I've been cg since 2006 and after seeing a huge improvement and believing I have reached the end of my natural hair journey. I'm now looking for how to solve the straw like lack of moisture in my hair as well as the wet hair all day issue. What products and routines can you recommend for my hair width and porosity? Also I check out as lp based in the float test and my complaint of my hair taking forever to dry but I check out as hp when I do the strand test. What does this mean for my porosity?

The float test is notoriously unreliable. If you question your determination, why don't you do the live curly/live free hair analysis??
