My hair gets really crispy and hard after I apply product

Whenever I'm done washing my hair and no matter what product I use it always gets crispy and hard so I don't really like wearing it out when its drying because its really hard. Even when I don't use gel either it gets hard. But if I don't any product in my hair it turns into a frizzy ball. I'm pretty sure I'm protein sensitive help?

you need to check the ingredients that are in the products you're using. If they're high in protein rich ingredients your hair may be experiencing a protein overload. Which means that your protein-moisture balance is off. 
once it is dry and crunchy just put a little argan oil or similar oil into your hands and scrunch your hair to release the gel cast that forms when the product dries.
