U are using a LOT of protein. I bet that's why. Try using a clarifying shampoo and try a super moisturizing conditioner like Tresseme Naturals nourishing moisture. And also use it as a leave in and a deep conditioner. Give some time to soften up bc it sounds like u have protein overload.

Protein can be really good for your hair, and might have made it look good before, but too much can make hair rough and hard. You can't just wash it out either. You have to give your hair a break from it so it wears off.

Also, you can put a protein free conditioner in a spray bottle with water and use that to moisturize between washes. Personally, I don't find oils moisturizing enough by themselves. I need a well formulated conditioner to help keep my hair moisturized, then I seek that in with oils. The smoothie is more of a sealer for me, and I have to use a conditioner under it.
