Ok, so my hair is fine and porous. It's pretty short. Just cut off a couple of inches and it's just below my ears when wet. My hair isn't damaged, but it's pretty dry...getting better though thanks to CG and now holds a good curl in Winter also thanks to CG. I don't know if my products are heavy or just moisturizing. I put in about one tablespoon or even a bit more of my conditioning balm after co-washing and conditioning and a pea size amount of gel. I also scrunch after it's dry with the N&S. My hair doesn't get weighed down at all. I also tend to agree with Oriental Curl about fine hair not holding a curl as well as coarser hair. My youngest has somewhat coarse hair and I was thinking that her hair holds a curl better than mine does.
