It's still drying out

My hair stays moisturized for two days may and then dries out. I do moisturize everyday, though. Right now I'm doing twists every week. I only have time to wash on the weekends. Anyway, I've been using the curl junkie smoothing lotion, seal with coconut oil or shea moisture elixir and kccc as a gel since I ran out of proclaim.

My hair is soft but it still keeps drying out, it's looks ashy/dry (sometimes) instead of sheeny like normal. To moisturize my twists I spray them with a bit of water and add about a dime to quarter size amount of soothing lotion and an oil. Is this ok? I kind of need a more efficient way to moisturize. The sides and the back of my hair are the main parts that dry out, though I sleep with a satin bonnet at night.

I've tried DM buttercreme before but it just feels heavy and coats my hair. I can't stand using things are too oily during the summer because it causes me to breakout. Thanks in advance.
Whoop whoop!

My hair has been drying out a lot too. I have found some success with the following method:

Spritz with water until my twists are damp.
Apply leave in conditioner
Seal with whipped pudding
Hop in shower (let steam do its magic)
Seal ends with mango butter
Bun

I'm finding that I have to bun my hair to prevent it from drying out. Maybe j need to start walking around with a spritz bottle like I did last summer.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Do you deep condition your hair? Even if you only have time to wash your hair on weekends, it should be fine if you DC every week and apply a leave-in or moisturizer and oil around the middle of the week.
Maybe you should tweak your spritz. I use distilled water and usually put about five squirts of conditioner and just a little bit of grapeseed oil. Sometimes I add glycerin depending on the weather. You should experiment and see what works for you.

I had dryness too But now it seems I've got it under control.

What has changed:

Rinse conditioner out with COLD water, not the hot water I use to shower with.
Add glycerin to my shea whip.
Add glycerin to my flax seed gel. The gel also has oil added to it.

I'm not sure what my dewpoints are, but I haven't had dryness so far.

Before adding glycerin, the flaxseed gel left my hair crispity crunchity. And the shea whip was just OKAY. Now I love them both.
