p.s: it ain't the shampoo because I have very many shampoos!

It is the sulfates in shampoos that do this. So, you shampoo to clean and remove oil, then you need a conditioner to add back in oils but that can weigh your hair down and then we use styling products that have alcohol in them (many gels do too) and that dries our hair out again.
I started using WEN on my hair and my daughter's after friends at work told me about it. They have very hard to manage hair and love it. It is not cheap but if you do not shampoo everyday it wouldn't be as expensive. It has no sulfates and is a conditioning shampoo that cleans and conditions. You cannot buy it in stores but can buy it online through their website or through QVC.
