You may benefit from a hair analysis because it sounds like you may be using products that aren't suited to your specific hair properties. You may be using products with lots of proteins when your hair may actually need more humectants (moisture). Also, if you live in a very humid or arid climate, products with glycerin high on the ingredients list will cause hair to be dry because of how glycerin affects moisture balance.
I am not sure what your curl pattern or hair texture are, but certain types of hair naturally look drier. For instance, coarse hair, whether straight, wavy, curly or kinky, doesn't reflect light as well as fine and medium hair so this texture may look dry even when it isn't. Really tight curls like 4a and 4b that aren't fine also may look drier than other curl patterns because the less smooth the surface of hair, the less it reflects light, which causes less shine.
