It's really hard to answer with no products, technique or pictures--essentially no data. (Your products came up when I was writing this) It actually appears that you wash and condition, but don't use any stylers or do any DTs, either protein or moisture. Most of us complain of long drying times--especially those with low porosity.

Don't want to be harsh, but I'm not sure if you've read the threads in the newby forum, or just what you've been doing on the site for the last six weeks.

My first suggestion would be to read the newby forum threads, if you haven't. Find people that have hair like yours and "stalk" them. Look at what products and techniques they are using.
