My hair is fine/low porosity/low density. If your hair is low porosity, it means it takes a LONG time to absorb products, if it does it at all. I use minute amounts of really rich products....

As I recall, it has polyquat 10, so I never used it. You could try making your own FSG or okra gel, that way you can control the ingredients. I have several in my signature, if you can see it.
