Default After washing jacket seems lost breathability

So I washed my cool 686 jacket (10K/8K) first time with casual detergent according to care instruction (30 degree water, gentle style, rinsed twice), and couple of days ago I ride and found out jacket was wet inside and dried very slow.

Usually in mountains during lunch time it used to be completely dry really quick.

It seems I affected or damaged breathable layer, perhaps closed pores with detergent?

Can it be fixed? Should I try Nikwax and re-wash it? Along with re-activating DWR layer?
