Why does my hair feel soft when wet but dry when...dry?

As I'm washing my hair and letting my hair dry it will feel really soft but then as it dries it just feels dried out.

Do you use a leave in conditioner or moisturizing product? I would recommend applying a leave in conditioner to your hair when it's soaking wet, then an oil, then your curling cream. This is called the LOC method and it's been known to be one of the best ways to seal in moisture. This has more info too:http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlreading/kinky-hair-type-4a/loc-method-the-routine-every-curly-should-know/
because water moisturizes and unless you use something to seal the water in it will evaporate. Use a creamy/liquid leave in and seal with an oil, butter or silicone based product. You will have to play around to fine what works for you
