People on here do a lot of unscientific and illogical things like applying conditioner to dry hair when it's not designed for that - the basic conditioning ingredients (cationic surfactants and fatty alcohols AKA emollients) adhere best to recently shampoo'd hair due to the charges on the molecules. Emollients are hair and skin softeners, they have various benefits including temporarily patching damage on the hair surface, reducing friction when combing, very weak humectants.
By all means use honey but don't add humectants to yet more humectants, balance your routine. Proteins also have humectant properties so perhaps you have simply been overdoing the humectants for some time. By letting a product containing a high percentage of two humectants dry on your hair you are more likely to be drawing water out of your hair than moisturising (adding or increasing water).
Occlusives are sealants = oils, butters, silicones, petroleum jelly, waxes (some of these we avoid in CG). Some oils are penetrating - anything rich in lauric acid or oleic acid especially coconut olive and avocado - others like shea butter are not.
Tresemme, Yes to Carrots and Too Shea are not really deep conditioners, they are everyday conditioners designed to reach maximum effectiveness in a fairly short time. If you want to use these you can use them as a base for a deep conditioner, you can add ingredients to make a deep conditioner but do so logically, something that penetrates, something that balances out your routine or the product, an ingredient you believe is a penetration enhancer for another ingredient. Honey with coconut oil is a popular and logical combination.
