Co-Washing Advice

Hello all, so over the past year I have been delving into co-washing. I'm a 22-year-old guy and this stuff just doesn't really come naturally to me haha.

I have wavy hair which has been extremely dry due to the use of Accutane when I was 16. I have since then always used moisturizing shampoos (Aussie Moist for majority of my teen years.) Around two years ago, I noticed that sulfates were drying my hair so I switched to Loreal Evercreme's shampoo/conditoner. I work out a lot so I wash my hair daily, I then noticed that was starting to dry my hair out.

Last fall, I tried the DevaCurl line to help my hair out a bit and really liked it. I thought the No-Poo was somewhat drying though. Then I tried WEN and I really hated it. I don't understand that hype. I have an undercut, buzzed on the sides and long on top. WEN completely stripped my hair after trying it twice. I looked into it a little bit more and I think it may have been the menthol and the silicones.

I went online to look up some better ones and then I found Purely Perfect around May this past year. So far, it has been my favorite. I would use that along with some Aveda conditioner afterwards.

I was starting to run low on the Purely Perfect and then I decided to give the Curl Junkie Daily Fix a try. I was learning about all the products on this site and decided to get

Daily Fix
Argan and Olive Oil Conditioner
Smoothing Lotion
Curl Rehab mask

So far, I really liked all the products but the Daily Fix. I feel like that dried my hair out a lot. Since my hair is pretty short I've only been using a quarter sized amount. Should I be using more of Daily Fix?

I hear such good things about the Daily Fix and was wondering if I'm not using it correctly. I may just order some more Purely Perfect since I got really good results with that.
