Porous, too??? HELLO, HAIR TWIN!!!!
Most porous curlies do like protein. My hair never met a protein it didn't like, but some find their hair has protein types that it doesn't respond well to.
Whatever protein you use, if you are doing a PT you should pretty much always follow up with a moisture DT.
Have you tried the gelatin PT? My hair adores it! That's why I added so much gelatin to my latest batch of FSG!
