IF you're going by the little pictures, sometimes they're incorrect or misleading. Always go by ingredients!
If you're high-po you could probably benefit from some regular intake of protein. Medium width should be ok too... usually the coarse curlies have issues with protein.
If you're interested I started using the Shea Moisture Coconut/Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk. It is full of anti-humectants, no glycerin and it has protein. I live in very high dews and it's probably my most favorite product I've ever tried. (I'm not high porosity, but my hair is fine and loves protein.)
I've never had problems with shea butter buildup. It is true I low-poo regularly. But I think curlies on this forum love SheaMoisture products that all have shea butter in them, and many, if not most of those curlies cowash. I suppose it depends on your hair.
I agree overall that you need to cut the humectants, especially the glycerin.
2BC/f/II. fine - low/normal porosity - medium density - normal elasticity.

Experimenting with: CeraVe Foaming as low-poo, gelatin gel
