DevaCurl products drying?

I was given lo poo shampoo, gel ,& condish by a friend. I've been using them about 6 weeks, not doing my hair any more often but it seems to be much drier...has Nyone else had this problem. Usually here in CO we're pretty dry, but the month of may had 2 days of sun in 3 weeks. Thank God we didn't have what friends and fam put up with in tx, but a lot for here. And we've been here for 15 yrs and have forgotten how to deal with humidity!:laughing2::laughing2::laughing2:

    My hair felt dry with those products too but it was mainly because my hair WAS dry, super dry. It was not moisturizing at all for me. Plus I am protein sensitive so my hair was dry and stiff with deva stuffs.

    Low density, very coarse, high porosity

    Thanks Ladies. Guess I will be searching again. But I do like the gel.

    RBB--your hair is so very pretty...I was going to ask what products you use until I read your signature :D
