I have never colored my hair and its been ages ago since i used antipermanent. I rarely straight my hair , maybe twice a year. Still i have highly porous and dry hair. I was born like this! My hair looooooves moisture and protein and sucks up anything wet in seconds. And it dries very fast.
So i really know what you are talking about. My hair locks naturally damaged without any moistureproducts (conditioner, oils). So i always use conditioner and some oil right after showering my hair to get it look less porous and dry.
3c hair, high porosity, mediumdensity, low elasticity, fine hair.
