Everyone has a mix of textures & porosities. Considering that your hair takes forever to dry, you should scrunch out as much excess water as possible & don't use more than 3 products on your hair at a time. The amount of products can increase drying time too. I have a ton of hair. So I have to apply quite a few palm fills of conditioner but this increases drying time so I cut back. Knowing the type of curls you have will also help better tell you what to use on your hair. Hope this helps.
