Unhappy Help! dry&frizzy hair in the winter

hi

I have bleach damaged hair (probably porous). I started CG in the summer en finally I found how I had to treat my hair so it wouldn't frizz that much and is more hydratated.

I live in the Netherlands (Europe), in the summer the dewpoints are really high, but now, when it's getting fall/winter, the air is quite dry I guess? My hair is really frizzy and if I moisturize it, it's dry within a couple of hours. What do I do wrong? Here is my routine:

-first I co-wash
-I do some conditioner in my hair (I have different ones, i like CJ - repair me and oyin handmade honey and hemp oil conditioner the most).
-keep it in hair about 5-10 minutes with a plastic cap
-rinse for about 80%
-dry with microfibre towl
-put some leave-in in my hair
-put some oil in it
-scrunch some 'bee mine hold curly butter' and/or gel (I have jessicurl rocking ringlets and eco styler kristal)
-let it air dry
-sleep on a satin pillow case (synthetic)

I hydratate my hair like two times a day to reduce frizz and add some moisture, but that only helps for a couple of hours

thanks for your reply!

If the dews are low, check to see if any of your leave in or styling products contain any glycerin or other humectants. This can cause dryness/frizz in low dews. Also, you may need to add a weekly DT to our routine if you don't already.

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

DT's I do sometimes (but I guess I need to do that more often). I have CJ curl rehab and jessicurl deep treatment. Just do it in my hair and leave it in for... how long acutally?

and afterwards rinse and style as usual?

and thank you for the humectant tips! So in the summer (high dews) I need the humectants, and now don't use them at all? Or only not in leave-ins and stylers?

And do you think a microfiber towel can me harmfull? Is a cotton T-shirt better?
