low porosity tips needed

Never thought I would be low porosity but I did some reading on this topic and so far this is what I have come up with for tips:

On wash day use a little leave in with slip to it while hair is wet squeeze hair to remove excess conditioner then apply little light oil or serum.

Condition-when using warm water apply conditioner then leave 5 mins rinse with warm water.

DT-apply DT, plastic cap, warm dryer 30 mins, no protein DTs.

Refresh hair- between washings dampen hair w/warm water then seal w/little light oil.

Stylers-light hand w/them, don't use too much product.

Clarify often

No cold water rinses

No ACV rinses

Use emollients and humectants

Okay, so that is what I have so far...I would like to know how much conditioner I should use for my rinseout and if leave in should be applied to wet or damp hair.

3a/b medium/coarse combo(w/some fine strands), normal porosity, normal elasticity(strong)
Komaza analysis 2015: medium to coarse combo(some fine strands), normal porosity, strong elasticity, healthy hair

    I just do a baptismal/sprinkle rinse.

    Leave in would be applied to wet hair, how much depending on how much hair you have.
