Our bleach-blonde writer Diane M. wrote this on the best moisturizers for dry hair: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/wavy-hai...Also, I would recommend deep conditioning once a week and trying to stay away from sulfates as much as possible right now, unless your hair is super dirty and you need to clarify your scalp. Your hair is very fragile right now so it needs as much TLC as it can get :)
Dont use ANY products with silicones or parabens. These products create a layer on the outside of the hair shaft similar to plastic. (It can literally be scraped off with a razor!) The coating on the hair shaft prevents moisture from actually getting into and nourishing the hair. Once you are sure your regular regimen does not include these chemicals, use a great moisturizing mask such as Deva Curl 'Heaven In Hair'. It is deeply moisturizing and free from silicones and parabens. Over time the natural moisture of your hair will be restored. Also, DO NOT whatever you do touch a hot tool to your hair. The extreme heat sucks moisture right out of your hair... Think of water droplets on a frying pan. Just one flat ironing and your hair will be right back at square one. Best wishes
