Default Dry hair need help.. TWA

Hello everyone!
My name is Tailonda and i have a dilemma. Ive been natural since 12/17/12 ... ive did the big chop twice due to color treatment damage... i cut the hair off and started fresh... i have a problem. My hair is dry as hell! I really don't know what to use. I was thinking of a whipped shea butter recipe. If anyone knows any cheap but good moisturizers or a homemade moisturizer recipe... that would be AWESOME(:

What's your routine? What products are you using?

What's really made a difference in my hair is to do an overnight oil treatment. It's really simple. I use either Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil or a mixture of the two.

Just put it on your hair before going to bed. Tie it up, and make sure you put a towel on your pillow.

You could also put your hair in a shower cap.

Honey is also really good for dry hair. You could do a quick treatment before washing.

do you already co-wash instead of (low)poo? Do you already limit or cut heat styling, an do you do deep treatments? Do you already use a leave-in conditioner, and do you seal your ends with oil? How are the dewpoints where you are living?
