Low Porosity questions

Is this thread for all low porosity questions?

What is the best way to moisturize low porosity hair? My scalp gets itchy quick. I use leave-in conditioners, daily moisturizers, and I even oil my scalp, but still the itch. What's crazy about it, is that my hair feels moisturized.

I can't figure it out.

Also I have been spritzing my hair with a mixture of jojoba oil, aloe Vera juice, Jane Carter leave in conditioner, and Rosewater. I seal with coconut oil. This routine is working for me as I no longer have a itchy scalp. I oil my scalp 3 times a week, spritz and seal every day.

When you use your spritz, do you spray it directly on your scalp?

My hair does not seem to get moisturized. I moisturize everyday and at first my hair will be moisturized but then after a week- week and a half my hair is dry and the stuff that was working at first doesn't work so well.
I shampoo once a week but I'm thinking it still might be build up. My question is what do you think the problem is and if it's build up what can I do t o prevent build up?
Almost MBL Coils
spongy, low porosity, dense awesomeness

Shampoo: Curly Kinks Cleansing Cream
Rinse Out/Detangler Conditioner: Aussie Moist, V05 Strawberries and Cream, Suave Naturals Coconut
Leave in Conditioner: Trader Joe's Nourish Spa and Giovanni Direct Leave in
Styler: Eco Styler Krystal and Blue, Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Gel and Flax seed gel
Sealer: Grape seed oil
Deep Conditioner: Curl Junkie Repair Me
Protein Treatment: Karishma and Jamilla Henna
That would be the silicone in the Suave Professionals Almond Shea Butter Conditioner.
