Why is my hair so dry? and it seems to have lost its curl. Is it age?

- I am 52- do not color my hair- salt and pepper- I co wash but then have to use purple shampoo and it gets dry and weird again.

What's in the purple shampoo? I'm guessing that's the issue.  Our hair does tend to get drier and more wiry as we age. Are you using lots of hydration? 
I coated my hair in coconut oil last Friday and it still seems to be very dry. The purple shampoo is sulfate free- Shitaka. I am going to co wash for a few more days and see what happens. I did have highlights added about 2 months ago and that may have contributed to the problem.
