Overwhelmed a bit...

I am having a hard time finding the right shampoo and conditioner and styling products for my hair. I've been using the YES TO CARROTS shampoo and conditioner, which seems to be working fine for now. However, the second day is where my hair gets dry. I'm really not sure what styling products to use for it. Wet or dry. Right now, I'm using the L'oreal Eversleek for humidity, I forgot what it is called. Anyway, I'm not really sure how to keep my hair moisturized. I kind of need something cheap, and I've been reading about the leave-ins, but most of them have proteins in it and I have learned the hard way that my hair is protein sensitive, which doesn't make sense because i used the tri-wheat spray from sexy hair a while back when Iwas straightening my hair and it never dried out, but I don't straighten my hair nor do I blow dry. I'd like a CG friendly styling product that is also protein free and a little on the cheap side. Any suggestions? Oh, also what about a good deep conditioner?
Your hair may have liked the protein before because it was being damaged by straightening, but since you stopped you may not need that protein.

For a gel I would recommend Aussie instant freeze or Pantene Curl Shaping gel, both are protein free and CG.

For a deep conditioner, i like Generic Value Products Conditioning Balm from Sally's. Sometimes I add honey to it to make it more moisturizing.

For a leave in, I would use whatever conditioner you are currently using, so long as it does not have drying alcohols in it or other "bad' ingredients.

Also, to lock in moisture, a lot of people seal their hair using a rich product or oil. This could help keep your hair moisturized on day two.
