Thirsty Hair!

My hair seems to be thirsty all the time. My solution is doing a wash and go everyday. I don't use a shampoo (unless I feel the need, then ill use a sulfate free) I just wet my hair in the shower put in some conditioner and seal with either EVOO or jojoba oil and I'm done. But by the end of the day/the next morning my hair is just dry.

I did a porosity test and I have low porosity. My concern is doing a wash n go everyday isn't good for my hair? Any tips?

I have a video on YouTube that explains it more thorough and u can see my hair type/texture which I'm not too sure of , but i didn't want to write an essay here lol

Plz help my thirsty curls kinks and coils!

    Are you trying to say that your hair is always dry? That's why you said it's thirsty? lol. Sally Hershberger products are good for dry hair. It's a little pricey but you can save up for it monthly. :)

    what conditioner are you using? can you list the ingredients? you might need to use a richer conditioner. in low dews i use a deep treatment conditioner as a leave in.
    and, my hair finds oils for sealing to be drying. loves jane carter nourish & shine, makes my hair soft.
    everyone's hair is different, sounds like you need to try different products.

    My hair is fine/low porosity. I wet, use a rinse out and style every day. My hair is so well moisturized, the shampoo guy at the salon won't use conditioner on my hair when I'm there for my haircut/highlight (he just doesn't "get it.")

    My hair doesn't care for straight oils/butters, but likes them in well formulated product. My suggestion would be to add some more moisturizing products and top it off with a jelly (I stay away from products with a lot of chemicals, especially polyquats.)

    What porosity test did you use? I did one as well, and mine said low porosity. But in reality, I have high porosity hair. you may want to check the test, they're not always accurate. Btw, I have this problem as well. I've found for me, If I take a little gvp conditioning balm and emulsify it with water (going to experiment with AVJ next) and apply a little daily to my my hair, it works. Also olive oil before pineappling bed works. & I've noticed since I started shampoo free method, my hair is more moisturized. Also, if you wear a satin bonnet or use a satin pillow case, it helps.
