Default double condition?

Do any of you have dry hair? How do you keep it moisturized? It seems so difficult having this LP hair and nothing soaks in or it takes forever to. Do any of you also find that washing at night is best because it allows for products to start working? For me, if I wash my hair and diffuse to 60% at night I go to bed with crunchy damp hair but wake up with soft bouncy waves. It's like it takes ALL that time to do my hair the justice it needs. Any tips for me?
2(I have no idea what pattern), low porosity, mix of medium and coarse, dense

*Have just discovered the amazingness that is the "Spritz and Condish" routine*

Shampoo: SM Moisture Retention Shampoo
Co-wash: VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea Clarifying Conditioner
RO: GVP CB, Garnier Triple Nutrition
LI : Whatever conditioner I used + EVOO or Argon oil
Stylers: Organix Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Creme, EcoStyler Gel (krystal)

Have you ever heard of dry deep conditioning? I've tried it (along with others) and I've noticed that it made my hair feel softer, moisturized, and more conditioned. It's basically just putting conditioner on dry (not wet) hair. My theory is that because the hair is dry, less space is taken up by water and more space for the conditioner. What I do is a mix of a hot oil treatment and dry DC by applying warmed up (not burning hot) oil that is said to penetrate hair, like olive, coconut, and avocado, then put conditioner on top, then any oil to seal. After that I wrap it up with plastic. You could use heat if you want by doing it in the shower, with a steamer, plain ole body heat, a blowdryer, or the fancy schmancy heat caps for less time. I tried it both ways starting with wet or dry hair and I prefer dry hair and it also involves less jumping in and out of the shower. So, I get to be lazy but productive.
