I need moisture!

Jeez, my hair is dry. It's very thick and wavy/curly. I've been doing a version of the curly girl method for the past year or so and leaving it au naturel instead straightening it as I had done for years before.

Trouble is that no matter how much conditioner, hair moisturisers, or oils I use, it remains dry as a nun's whatsit.

What do other MNers use on thick dry hair?

I also have dry, thick, wavy hair and have recently switched to the Body shop banana shampoo and conditioner which is working wonders. I also use that incredible oil stuff and something that I think is called miracle mist which is basically a lighter version of the incredible oil. Also Morrocan oil. If you can do it, put some coconut oil or olive oil on your hair overnight (put a towel on your pillow or wrap your head in clingfilm) and then wash in the morning. Voila!
