I would definitely suggest a deep treatment. A lot of ppl like GVP CB especially if you want something that is cheap and easily accessible. Personally it didn't work for me but I think it's because I had a bad reaction to an ingredient in it. I use DermOrganic masque as a DT as well as a LI. It always makes my hair soft and you can get a huge bottle for 20 bucks at TJ Maxx. If you don't mind spending more or having to get something online, I've heard good things about CJ rehab. I've been wanting to try it myself. If your hair is drying out it could be a protein overload. Don't use the suave coconut conditioner since it contains protein. I use Sauve clarifying conditioner as my RO. It has great slip and very cheap. Hope this helps a bit. Good luck
