Another +1 to SaraNoH's suggestions.
Here's another idea: instead of shampooing every other day, on some of those days use a "no poo" instead. Deva makes a No Poo which many of us like. It is used instead of shampoo, or just rinse with a good conditioner. If you can get away with shampooing less frequently, your hair will be less dry.
You have a great smile in the last picture - best of luck!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
