Dry deep conditioning is crucial as I am low porosity

I shampoo, dry my hair until 85% dry with a t-shirt then apply the DC...

I've had really soft moisturized hair since I started doing this.

I tried the dry deep conditioning this week and my hair basically celebrated for the next few days. Of course low porosity strands wouldn't want all that extra water getting in the way of the deep conditioning.
