I have low-porosity hair so I am unfamiliar with dealing with high porosity. As you browse the forums, check out signatures and find members with hair similar to yours and see what products and techniques they use.

But start with the protein thing - that is the likely culprit. If you want to stick with on-ground products, suave has a couple of protein-free options. For online products - my favorite is Curl Junkie.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
