yeah I experienced this not too long ago before I realized my hair was protein sensitive. maybe your hair does not need protein twice a month...I would try a conditioner that provides more moisture and is protein free.

I personally like the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. it moisturizes my roots and my relaxed hair.

Are those Shea moisture products you mentioned the set with the yellow labeling? I'm also on east coast so this dryness can be contributed to the weather. I just bun daily.
Products I'm currently :
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (Vanilla Latte scent)
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
  • Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Heavenly Jojoba Oil
Staple Deep Conditioners: Giovanni Direct Leave-in and Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask
