Actually, your signature didn't show online when I looked. It does now. My hair is also fine/low porosity. It doesn't care for straight oils/butters, but likes them in well formulated products.

My mother lives in FL, so I have an idea of what your dewpoints are like--the worst days of a mid Atlantic summer. In the really high dewpoints, I use a leave in OR curl enhancer (meaning one layer) with a jelly product. My hair doesn't care for the chemicals in gels, especially the polyquats. Try using a minute amount of a really rich product that takes a while to absorb and follow with a jelly/gel.

Because my hair is low porosity, it's frequently dry before the products are absorbed. My hair gets better as the day goes on.
