So you use two styling products and no leave in conditioner? That could be your problem, you are not using enough fatty alcohols and cationic surfactants (the main emollients).
Are your products moisturising (rich in emollients and humectants)? They look more heavy/ sealing (rich in occlusives or anti-humectants) to me. Moisturising means adding or increasing water, butters and oils repel water.
For high porosity, low elasticity hair do more coconut oil soaks on dry hair - that penetrates, shea butter does not penetrate and can build up. For strength use more hydrolysed protein.
