Best Daily Moisturizing Tip?

Hi Ladies,
I'm new to this whole natural thing. My hair type is 4a. I have been natural for about five months, and now that my hair is growing longer it doesn't seen to hold essential oils. My hair start to dry out in just a few hours after applying oil. So my question is what products would you recommend for daily use to make my hair soft and maintain my kinky coils?
I like to spritz and condish, all you do is put some of your favorite co and a little bit of water in a spray bottle and spray your hair through out the day.
Type- 2a
Texture- Fine
Porosity- Normal
Elastisity- Normal
Density- Medium


CO- Vo5 kiwi lime squeeze, various sauve conditioners, loreal evercurl cleansing co.
Style- beautiful curls wave enhancing leave-in, pure and clean gel, Shea moisture smoothie
Techniques- plopping

Def some sort of deep condish at least once a fortnight & using leave in. I just use Tresemme natural
Moisture as my cowash, rinse out & then leave in.

For post 1st day hair, I do the same as prev poster - spritz some diluted condish at night & 1st thing in the morning. 1 part condish (TS Nat) + 7 parts water.

I've heard Shea moisture coconut & hibiscus products are wonderfully moisturising - esp the curl enhancing smoothie

I just tried Curls Whipped cream
& it's wonderfully moisturising. I'm on day 2 hair & it's still smells & feels wonderful. The only issue I have is that it shows White streaks in my hair but eventually when my hair dries - those steaks disappear. It has no hold either so I used it with some olive oil eco styler. I'm loving it

Lo-poorganix Shea butter shampoo
Co-wash: suave coconut
Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
Serum-like product: still need one
Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
Oils: olive, coconut

I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein
Everything people said already. if you still have trouble with dry hair, smooth a few drops of oil after putting in a water based LI or a moisturizer. It helps seal in the mositure. Best done on wet or at least damp hair
3B curls
Medium texture
Normal elasticity
High porosity
if your hair doesnt like oil, then try a nice refreshing boost spray, made with herbal tea, eg peppermints or green tea put it in a spray bottle and just spray when ever you need boost. i put same honey and tea tree in mine, cause the tea tree helps cleanse the hair as well

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
