I'm getting the same dry experience with my hair. The only thing that fixes it is Moroccan Oil Hydrating Deep Conditioner. I leave it in my hair for a few days. Also I have had great luck with using Jamaican Black Caster Oil in my hair as a treatment over night. I think they call it the green house effect. My hair needs some time to drink it in. I might even deep condition each time I wet my hair. I've also found my hair likes Avocado Oil I get the food grade oil from the middle eastern grocery store and mix it with a cheap conditioner and leave it in as a deep conditioning treatment.

Hope that gives you some options to try.
