Hi I'm new to this site, so sorry if I didn't put down enough detail about my hair. I think I'm a 4A when it comes to hair types. It's almost been 2 years since I went natural. Now my hair is longer and I'm having a lot of trouble keeping it moisturized. Currently I'm using Tresemme Naturals as a conditioner, and I follow the CurlyGirl Method. Right now it's winter where I live and my hair is super dry. I'm thinking of switching to a homemade conditioner but I don't know the first thing about it. I've heard so many different ingredients that you can put into a homemade conditioner but I don't know which one would help my hair.

So I guess my question is, how do I figure out what to put in my hair? Has anyone else had this problem of their hair getting drier and more brittle as it grew?

I get tangles and knots so much more now. I don't know how to help my hair. It doesn't seem like its absorbing the Tresemme Natural conditioner.

Also, does anyone have a recommendation for a homemade conditioner? I'm hoping to make one that I don't have to remake every day. One that I can just make, put in a bottle and use until I need to make more.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
