Do you apply your DT before or after you cleanse your hair? I find that my hair gets less weighed down when I cleanse after using a DT. Also, maybe the addition of extra oils to your conditioner is too much for your hair. You can try adding some honey to one of your regular conditioners and using that as a DT. The DT will also penetrate your hair better if you use heat. I recommend rinsing your hair, applying the DT, putting on a shower cap/saran wrap, and using a blow dryer to heat up the conditioner that's in your hair. After that, you can cleanse and condition your hair as you normally would.

Also, have you tried a protein treatment yet? I was afraid to use protein for a long time, but I recently started using IAgirl's PT and it makes my hair super soft and shiny and bouncy. Protein treatments can also help strengthen your hair and protect it from environmental damage.

Will try the honey thing when I get home again from my trip abroad on monday Hopefully the shower cap that I ordered online has arrived by then as well! I also ordered Aubrey organics GPB for the proteins(before I knew it possible to use gelatin). Have you tried it? If my hair seem to like proteins I will try the gelatin stuff too!

I'm not really a shampoo person either, but Shea Moisture, Jessicurl, and DevaCurl all make really gentle, moisturizing low-poos that don't dry my hair out. You might wanna try one of those.

I've never used any of the Aubrey Organics conditioners because I'm afraid that their high content of drying alcohol will cause more frizz and dryness for me, but I think that the proteins still could be effective even if they're not hydrolyzed. It just won't penetrate your hair quite as well as a conditioner that contains hydrolyzed protein. Try the GPB and see what happens
