    If your hair dries that quickly, it sounds like it has high porosity. You might be able to find some great info in the High Porosity forum.

    Hair canopy is usually a little different from the rest because it's most exposed to the elements. Hair that doesn't hold moisture is considered to be porous. Here's a website that will help you to determine your hair properties: Live Curly Live Free - Home

    After you determine your hair properties, you can look for folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start. Porous and/or fine hair usually likes protein.

    I have super porous hair - it hates protein, but loves as much conditioner as I give it. Try the high porosity forum - there's a ton of great suggestions. Basically, I leave a bit of daily conditioner in from the shower, add a leave in and deep condition once a week (overnight). It's still dry but getting better with a lot more curl definition... :)

    Moisture loving, oil and protein hating (though it tolerates some in products).

    maybe I should say it hates protein treatments - it does just fine with the protein in the products...
