Welcome! One thing to remember is that your hair doesn't necessarily know that it's supposed to act a certain way, so be prepared for some possible surprises along the way.

I would still try some protein because you said your hair is overly porous. Whether your hair is fine or coarse (and many of us were wrong when we first guessed texture), I would absolutely follow protein with lots of moisture.

I think everyone should try co-washing, but don't beat yourself up if you don't like it. Straight co-washing doesn't work for everyone. I suggest a very light conditioner for co-washing and a heavier conditioner as a rinse out/leave-in.
