Make sure your hair is good and wet before you start cowashing/conditioning. Also, maybe try doing a prepoo w/ coconut oil before showering. Check out this post for other ideas:

If you have a Sallys, you could check out the GVP conditioning balm. It's more moisturizing than TN but still on the cheaper side!
