How do you normally dry your hair? Do you use a towel or tshirt?

My hair is high porosity. I started using a diffuser daily and did this for about a year. Even though I used it on low heat I felt that it damaged my hair-in that year I barely retained any length, had a lot of split ends and my hair got really dry.

I think that the even the small amount of heat opened the hair cuticle more and caused my hair to loose moisture rapidly (which led to splits and breakages). Personally, I'll never use a diffuser again.

You said you use a t-shirt to dry your hair, have you tried "plopping"? It can help with flatness and drying time, here is a link about how to plop incase you haven't heard of it http://m.wikihow.com/Plop-Your-Hair

Also if you use a lot of product you could try reducing that as well - the more product I use the flatter my hair gets and the longer it takes to dry.

Have you given your hair a protein treatment lately? Fine hair usually needs protein more often than coarse or medium hair.

My hair loses moisture quickly too, to help combat this I use a shea butter mix that I make myself (shea butter, olive oil, safflower oil) - this has really helped to stop my hair from drying out. It could work for you, but then I do have thick coarse hair, so if your hair is very fine it might be too heavy for you.

Maybe use a light oil underneath your products like coconut oil - I do this too and it also helps with keeping my hair moisturised without having to use so much product.
