what does this mean?

my hair does not seem to like oils much , creamy heavy items seem to make it soft yet dry. Pre wash, I can't add oils because when wet my hair will turn to a hot mess, knot city. It's almost like they just hug each other so tightly that leads to a break off. Not a pretty sight and frustrating and upsetting for me.

What does this mean ? Is my hair low porous / highly porous? ( I am confused )

I do think its not protein sensitive.. I have tried the emergencee from nexus and have used it as a styler and does work well for my hair.


suggestions? advice?

Thank you!

Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
hair seems to be moody.
Does not seem to like oils
Does not like protein or too much?
Does not like rich products

So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.

My hair is the same way if I use oils on my hair it gets super greasy. I only use hair serums like MoroccanOil. I only use natural oils like coconut as a pre-wash treatment. My hair adapt well to hair creams that contain vey little or lightweight oils in them.
Products I'm currently :
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (Vanilla Latte scent)
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
  • Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Heavenly Jojoba Oil
Staple Deep Conditioners: Giovanni Direct Leave-in and Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask
