How do I keep my hair moisturized through the night without baggying?

So, I've finally found how to moisturize my hair. My moisturizer is aloe vera juice+conditioner and my sealant is jojoba oil. Is jojoba is good sealant by the way?
I sleep with a satin bonnet at night, and somehow, it's always somewhat dry, not majorly though. I cowash in the morning anyway, but should I be worried about keeping it really moisturized at night? Can I moisturize, seal and be done with it without baggying evernight? I baggy twice a night anyway.
Thank you!

    Whatever oil you use for sealing depends on you and your hair. Jojoba is too light for me and tends to make my hair crunchy on it's own so I dilute it with a heavier carrier oil like castor.

    From what little you said it doesn't seem like you should be worried about dryness in the morning since you co-wash anyway and you shouldn't need to baggy that frequently unless you have major hair damage.

    Do you post a new thread everyday? Anyway, if you're cowashing every morning, there's no need to baggy every night.
    I baggy infrequently and even with my lowwww porosity, I don't need to do it more than twice a week once a month (usually post-henna). I also like doing the greenhouse effect treatment. Have you tried that? Give it a go (please note, there is already a thread about it, so if you're interested, there's no need to make a new thread). I use mahabhringraj oil.
    My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse. :happy6:

    sometimes, I think people do to much.. when I "moisturize" I spritz with plain ole water and seal that in with a heavy oil. Jojoba is too light for me.

    Unless your hair is dry and crunchy like the sahara dessert, I don't think you should be worried.
    Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

    I dont understand why you would worry about moisture overnight if you cowash every day. I hope that was a mistype about how much you baggy. It is possible to overcondition your hair. I have to done it many times and had to get a protein treatment to rescue my hair.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
