I do cowash and deep condition. It's extremely frustrating. I have always had a problem retaining moisture. My hair is light brown and always looks so dry, even when it's not. I have tried several different leave in conditioners and deep conditioners.

Thanks so much for the advice and replies!

I thought my hair was dry and wouldn't retain moisture before I started no-pooing. Dimethicone in my conditioner was the culprit.

Drinking lots of water helps.

Like the other poster said, list what you use. More help will come.
