Best Daily Moisturizing Tip?

Hi Ladies,
I'm new to this whole natural thing. My hair type is 4a. I have been natural for about five months, and now that my hair is growing longer it doesn't seen to hold essential oils. My hair start to dry out in just a few hours after applying oil. So my question is what products would you recommend for daily use to make my hair soft and maintain my kinky coils?

    I like to spritz and condish, all you do is put some of your favorite co and a little bit of water in a spray bottle and spray your hair through out the day.
    Type- 2a
    Texture- Fine
    Porosity- Normal
    Elastisity- Normal
    Density- Medium


    CO- Vo5 kiwi lime squeeze, various sauve conditioners, loreal evercurl cleansing co.
    Style- beautiful curls wave enhancing leave-in, pure and clean gel, Shea moisture smoothie
    Techniques- plopping

    Def some sort of deep condish at least once a fortnight & using leave in. I just use Tresemme natural
    Moisture as my cowash, rinse out & then leave in.

    For post 1st day hair, I do the same as prev poster - spritz some diluted condish at night & 1st thing in the morning. 1 part condish (TS Nat) + 7 parts water.

    I've heard Shea moisture coconut & hibiscus products are wonderfully moisturising - esp the curl enhancing smoothie

    I just tried Curls Whipped cream
    & it's wonderfully moisturising. I'm on day 2 hair & it's still smells & feels wonderful. The only issue I have is that it shows White streaks in my hair but eventually when my hair dries - those steaks disappear. It has no hold either so I used it with some olive oil eco styler. I'm loving it

    ive heard great things about kinky curl knot today leave in from target... also water is moisture itself so try adding your favorite oil to soaking wet hair that way the oil locks in the moisture...i love using coconut or olive oil for this
    Lo-poo:organix Shea butter shampoo
    Co-wash: suave coconut
    Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
    Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
    Serum-like product: still need one
    Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
    Oils: olive, coconut

    I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein

    Everything people said already. if you still have trouble with dry hair, smooth a few drops of oil after putting in a water based LI or a moisturizer. It helps seal in the mositure. Best done on wet or at least damp hair
    3B curls
    Medium texture
    Normal elasticity
    High porosity

    if your hair doesnt like oil, then try a nice refreshing boost spray, made with herbal tea, eg peppermints or green tea put it in a spray bottle and just spray when ever you need boost. i put same honey and tea tree in mine, cause the tea tree helps cleanse the hair as well

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
