How do you guys keep your hair moisturized in winter

Hi guys..
I have 2a hair which feels dry everytime I DC. this has been happening every since the weather began to feel a bit chilly..
I DCd with SMT (snowymoons moisture treatment) which usually works very well for me, but I'm guessing I need a more moisturizing treatment now that the air is going to be exceptionally dry.

So how do you DC in winter and how often? How do you wash out an oil treatment? I usually don't like to shampoo out my DC .
HAIR TYPE -2a-b, black, mostly medium
CO WASH, RO-HE HH and ENLEVEN and GARNIER RANGE
CLARIFY- I use sulphate shampoos silicone free(diluted), vinegar rinses
DC-pure coconut oil, olive oil, sometimes a SMT
LI-aloe vera gel + castor oil
I'm currently at BSL, aiming for waist length.I'm a very impatient person, wish me luck :D
I love my flat iron, but I love my waves even more. :-D

    I haven't heard of the DT you use but other product suggestions are GVP conditioning balm, Yes to Cucumbers, Curl Junkie Curl Rehab and Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent.

    Another option is using heat. Some people heat up a towel and put it on their heads, others may use a blow dryer on low.
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    Deep conditioning with heat weekly makes a big diff for me in winter. I like curl rehab, deva heaven in hair. Ouidad deep treatment,

    Also i add a little moisturizer to my ends every night before bed. Usually deva set it free or oyin whipped pudding. This helps my hair not dry out overnight
