Heat aids absorption, doesn't have to be from direct water. Can just be your head heat, a heating cap, a woolly hat, a hooded dryer, a steamer, going in the sauna after the gym, etc. For *me* warm water from the shower is the worst way to aid absorption. How long do I have to stand there before my cuticles 'open'? The running water is washing away the conditioner! If I run my hair under the water before
adding the conditioner, then my low porosity hair is 'full' like a very wet sponge and won't have any 'room' to take up the conditioner.
(some words in apostrophes because I know that's not exactly how hair works).
My faves methods are steamer or head heat (plus time).
