Need DEEP Conditioner recommendations please

hey, im just wondering what is truly the best deep conditioner for 3C, VERY VERY VERY THICK, corkscrew middle eastern hair. My hair at this point will soak up anything (and it requires a ton of whatever it needs) but nothing is really giving it the BIG BANG moisture I need.

Heres my routine which is helping some but I need moisture emergency, really really bad.
Just started with devacurl 2 days ago (maybe i need to give it time?).

Devacurl No Poo-done once
Devacurl One C-daily-rinse out, leave some in
Set it free
Macadamia oil
arc angell mixed with catwalk curl amplifier

Now i need a super kick butt deep conditioner and im afraid to mix products or try something and it doesnt work. Im tired of looking for the "the right thing" and being completely dissapointed, I have tried a TON of stuff to find my solution, havent found it yet. devacurl is helping but still missing something.

Also, my hair does not like shea butter, i learned that the hard way.

My hair looks very dry, scalp is itchy (never had that problem before) and i think its high porous.

Also, i have to condish every day. My hair gets drier not softer as days go by, so apparently my hair stopped producing oil like before.

It was odd, all the products and routines i did before just stopped working, actually dries my hair out bad now. Not sure if the water got hard or my hair just changed. The more moisture i have, the better my hair lays, clumps nicely and the curls are looser which, almost changes to from corkscrew to nearly bonicelli like.

now it dries too fast, have stringy dry strands, specially on the crown n back. my hair wont absorb anything or products, sometimes repels water. been battling my hair for almost a year now.

anyways, sorry for the long post, trying to give you enough info so you all can advise me to the right deep condish. thanks!

Do any of the products you use have -cones? I'm not familiar with your products' ingredients. But if they have -cones, the culprit could be that you need to clarify/shampoo.

Another thing that has popped into my mind esp. since you mentioned your hair drying stringy and not absorbing anything would be protein. Maybe try a protein treatment?
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

after youve done this def. check the ingredients in your products..i been through so much trial and error finding out what works for me and my DD's. (still am actually). im not one to sit and wait for results other than growth. when it comes to moisture, i would get an idea whether something is right for me during the application and kno for sure when i rinse it.. and if all else fails..make your own treatments in the kitchen blender until you find a good product. you cant go wrong with natural. speaking of natural try burts bees avocado butter...

Thanks for all the replies. I will try a clarifying shampoo and start over. I ordered Curl Junki and Jessicurl's deep conditioners. I also been using Jajoba oil to help. My hair is softer. Still working on getting it to clump again. Perhaps it will take time and patience.
