Nothing wrong with questions! What is making you think your hair won't soak moisture in? Are you confusing a damaged texture or build up with dryness, or struggling to accept your hair's condition without silicones?
High porosity/ damaged hair does not need more moisture it needs the right amount, too much water is damaging. It generally needs reduced porosity and increased elasticity - overnight coconut oil soaks on dry hair are king for this purpose.
High porosity hair also generally does not do so well with the potent humectants because they attract too much water to the hair in higher dews. The right amount of water can be held around the hair with weak humectants like cationic surfactants, fatty alcohols, hydrolysed protein, panthenol. A little oil to seal can absolutely be beneficial but it's easy to weigh down fine or wavy hair.
