I'm not sure whats going on with my hair but its dry, wont get moisturized, and has no slip. The same thing happened around this time last year. A few weeks ago my hair was fine but now I don't know what to do with it.

I thought my hair might have low porosity so i looked up some methods and tried doing conditioner and baking soda. it made my curls looser but didnt do much in helping my hair retain moisture. afterwards i put in leave in conditioner, grapeseed oil, and shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie and my hair still doenst feel very moisturized.

my usual routine is a cowash/oil rinse once a week, and other days i use water to dampen my hair and shea moisture to moisturize. I also have fine hair so i havent been able to find much of anything specific to my hair. oils are usually too much for my hair but im desperate to find something until i give up and put it in braids.
