Tips for staying moisturized...HELP!

I am a 4a type CG. Does anyone have any good methods or products to stay moisturized? My curly fro feels so dry/brittle lately after a day or 2. I usually twist down before bed, but I would like help with what I should put on it during the twisting process to lock in moisture.

    I was having the same problem and my hair was destroyed by some bad products from Beauty 4 Ashes. I went to the local natural foods store and bought Hugo Naturals Red Tea and Ylang-Ylang conditioner. It is very very moisturizing. It repaired my hair and it is soft again. I do not know what you are using to seal your hair after you wash. I am about to make my own natural butter. I can send you the recipe if you want it or I can let you know how it turns out. However, water is the most moisturizing thing for your hair so after you wash be sure to seal it in with a good oil, butter or mix.
