I would try sealing with another oil. Coconut oil has great benefits, one of them being that it penetrates the hair shaft and protects keratin BUT...it penetrates. So it leaves the outer shaft and enters the cortex...so nothing is sealing in the moisture anymore, and it evaporates. I dislike oils (I seal with creams) but maybe try jojoba? Sunflower is a good coating oil...play around with non-penetrating oils and see which you prefer. You can still use your coconut oil for pre-pooing (if you prepoo) or try putting it in a spray bottle and spritzing it on dry hair. I've read of some people liking it on wet hair, others on dry.

Also, what do you mix the bentonite with? Make sure you mix it with the ACV or apply it to your hair after the bentonite, which has a high pH and can leave your cuticles wide open causing friction, frizz and dryness.

And I'm assuming your hair is fine? Make sure you know your hair properties before adding regular protein treatments to your regimen.
