Well, the drying thing must just be some weird thing then. I've had 2 hair dressers tell me that my hair is lower in porosity than most people they've ever seen. That is interesting. It takes forever to get my hair wet in the shower too. Maybe it dries quickly because less water hits it? I dunno, I will ask my newest hair dresser, who is definitely into CG for people with hair like mine. I have learned so much about my hair!

When I'm getting it wet I lift up the hair and let the water hit the nape hair, then let some more hair down so the middle hair can get wet, then let it all down so the top hair can finish getting wet.

When rinsing out shampoo/conditioner/whatever, same process.

But when I stick my head under the faucet in the morning it gets wet reasonably quickly, I guess that is a lot more water all hitting the hair at once.
