Thanks for your responses. Unfortunately, I've tried KCKT, and it didn't work either. I've been doing some detective work, and I think this might be a porosity issue. When I got my hair analysis, it came back normal porosity, but I've never trusted it. I really feel like my hair is low porosity. I've noticed that when I use leave-in without diffusing, my hair feels greasy, but when I diffuse, it feels fine. I think the heat from the diffusing helps the moisture get into my hair rather than sitting on top.

Also, I find it more moisturizing, but not in a greasy way.

I second Calendula's suggestion of the Beautiful Curls Reviving Tonic! I use it sometimes on dry hair in the morning to get my style back. Darcy's Botanicals Herbal Leave-in Conditioning Spritz is also becoming one of my favorites. It has really great herbs for healthy hair and is hydrating without being heavy
