Welcome! Also consider your dew points/ humidity and the elasticity of your hair.

Protein does not work well for many with coarse hair as you say. Porous hair does not necessarily need more moisture (= water) it needs less, it can need more elasticity and reduced porosity from coconut oil treatments. Too much moisture weakens and damages the hair.
