Question Coarse and Porous hair

I have hair that is on the thick, coarse and porous side. I have been considering trying kccc since I heard some good things about it. Though from what I notice the individuals that like it appear to have fine/low porous hair. Does anyone with similar properties to me have luck with kccc?

I am also considering biosilk rock hard gel because I need a gel with a strong hold, but I am concerned with the protein. If I am not mistaken coarse hair does not tolerate protein well, but porous hair can tolerate protein. So I am confused how I would know how my hair tolerates protein when my hair is both coarse and porous. Is it trial and error?

There are no replies so I guess I am going to have to try for myself and see how it goes. Hopefully I get decent results.

I'm medium-coarse and porous and have been using it for over four years.

Thanks for the reply. I know everyone reacts differently to products, but I just wanted to check if anyone with similiar properties had a positive reaction. I'd rather know there is a chance it could work on my hair.

I have thick coarse 2c hair and found that I could only use a tiny amount of KCCC. When I used what seemed like a normal amount to me, my hair was gunky looking. And beware of the smell... to me it's god-awful but doesn't smell if I just just a tiny amount watered down in my hands.
