What's the best way to layer products on hair

So I have low porosity and it takes awhile for my hair to absorb my products ... I normally co wash, condition, use a LI (most are creamy), seal with a oil then use a gel. My question is should I apply all one after the other or let some absorb then proceed. If so which ones would I do first and how long before the other? I'm trying to avoid my hair looking like a white mess!

I let my leave in sit for about 30 minutes to an hour (with a conditioning cap) to let it absorb. While it's still damp I seal with an oil and then add gel when I'm doing twists. Hope that helps.

I don't have low porosity hair but I wait about 15min before putting my sealer over my leave-In then I wait an hour or so before I use my styler. Long process but I do my hair weekly with minimal re-moisturizing.

I'm really short on time so I just layer and diffuse. The heat helps tremendously.

I will have to try leaving my leave-in on for 15 min. this sounds very effective. What I normally do is leave-in, gel, and seal with oil.

I apply my leave in on damp to dry hair, and knot it up (bantu) to absorb as I go along...Then I go back take the knots down and seal

Is this about shingling? I'm still confused on that process as well.

Anyway, I need some of those weird looking clips in my life. The cheap ones I have can only hold my hair in small sections.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

After i rinse out my conditioner i section with clips. I blot each section with a microfiber towel to get excess water then add leave in. I end up with about 6 to 8 sections that I twist and clip up. Without the clips my hair would unravel. I leave it for about 20 minutes then go to oil or butter or gel. Then I can make my small twists which will hold. When i used to do everything right after the other my hair would always be white.
