The edges behind my ears is really coarse, the hair below my crown is really smooth, and the rest is average it is just all really dry all the time. My hair does not take a long time to get wet it takes about maybe 10-15 seconds if I am in the shower. My hair feels soft when water is in it BUT no matter how I seal or moisturize if water alone hits my hair at all my hair just feels dry water of any kind I have also tried bottled water. I have tried protein treatments most do nothing at all for my hair I might as well have not put anything in my hair. Most light protein conditioners make my hair hard though
