My hair type is medium-fine. Porosity: wets quickly, dries slow (with or without product) styling: layered cut, transitioning out of perm (about 80% natural), highlighted, blow drying 1 time since using cg method. Before then no more than one or twice a month. Always heat protected my hair. Flat ironing the same as blow drying. My shampoo has coco betaine in it & water soluble cones in it. My hair looks full not weighted down. But my products are protein rich & may need to cut back on the protein. Or low poo.
