Thanks for asking this question! That was fairly helpful for me as well, thanks for the tip. I just speculated that my hair was highly porous based on how it reacted to moisturising products; its easy to moisturise but it also loses moisture very quickly.
From what I've learned, when my hair is overconditioned from either too much of the baggy method or I've piled on too much DTs it tends to get limp but not greasy. That's usually when I hop onto getting a Protein Treatment in there. The balance really is important.
