CurlyCowgirly I too thought I was one of few with this problem! We should all start a club!

As far as I know, it's impossible for my hair to be over-conditioned, but at the same time I have to be very careful with oils or the occasional silicone serum b/c it gets greasy/stringy easily. Doesn't seem like it is when it''s wet, but when I blow-dry/straighten I notice it. In the shower, my hair takes a few minutes to get fully soaked. It doesn't suck in water easily...that makes it porous, right? And porous hair likes moisture more than protein doesn't it? (I need a memory refresher pleassseee!)
Porous hair wets easily and dries quickly (without product). Non porous hair is hard to wet and takes a long time to dry. Yours sounds nonporous. check out this curl chemist article on porosity. (a blog to help new wavies, go to the how do I get started page)
