when I was transitioning I had the same problem (alot of dry hair that tangled).
I first tried doing co-washes and my hair got worse. Then I found out that the conditioner I was using had silicones in it .
So once i started using a silicone free conditioner (and all silicone free products) my hair improved. And since it was easier to deal with I started washing my hair more often, like every other day sometimes every two days and my hair improved alot(now i'm 100% natural i wet my hair everyday).
Then an Indian friend of mine turned me on to coconut oil and Vatika oil, and when i started using them...hair problem solved.

Good Luck
First, what products are you using? I would suggest clarifying your hair. As DBOO75115 said, if you are using products that have silicone that could be the problem. Use a good clarifying shampoo to get a clean slate, then use a good moisturizing deep treatment (one with no silicones if possible). I highly recommend vatika (or other coconut oil). It can be added to conditioners or used alone as a prepoo, scalp oil and hair oil. It softens the hair really well and you can find it cheap at indian grocery stores

I use Doo Gro hair oil and BB oil moisturizer with castor oil so far on my new growth... what is a "clarifying shampoo" and where can i get it?

Co washes always kept my hair moisturized.

If you want to clarify with what you have at home, I would use baking soda. 1 tbsp baking powder and 2 cups warm water, pour over hair concentrating on the roots, work through hair, let sit for a min then rinse follow with a deep conditioner and ACV rinse (1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 cups room temp. (or cold) water). Avoid products with silicones

For me deep conditioning once or twice a week made my NG tons more manageable

My new growth loved qhemet biologics heavy cream mixed with their hydrating balm and olive oil.

If i had to do it over, I use a good leave-in conditioner and castor oil. It fabulous.
