    I wet the ends and then put oil over them, just a very small amount. Or I oil the ends while it is damp after a wash. For years I’d do that oiling on dry hair and it never clicked to oil my hair while it was damp until someone on here suggested it!

    Have you tried using Lapushka's ROO (Rinse Out Oil method?) It's in her signature if you want to take a look at what to do.

    Would it help to thoroughly brush your scalp oil down into your hair at the end of day 1? At least your roots might look better in the morning.

    I developed a routine that helps my hair retain moisture for 3 days (I wash every third day).

    It included going back from low shampoo to full-on sulfate galore. About 70% of my dryness was caused by product buildup and hard water buildup, trying to oil my hair more and do more DTs only exacerbated the issue. Also I started to use silicones, because nothing beats moisture loss like a silicone barrier. I know that too much silicone can cause dryness too, that's why I'm super picky when it comes to coney products.

    Also updos help a lot. My porous ends can't lose moisture if they're tucked into a bun

    And yes, my hair is medium to high porosity and absolutely adores protein. So idk how helpful my advice is here.

    How could I forget wet oiling! It's very helpful too! Still on me it didn't quite work until sulfates and cones came into my life, but it might help the OP.

    Good point. I do the same. I put my hair up in a twist with ends twisted under the rest of the hair when damp and oiled. Like this there's no way for the moisture to get out. I have low porosity hair though. But it still is dry and needs moisture.

    LOC (liquid/oil/cream) could be a good one to lock in the moisture and tucking in your ends in a bun really makes a difference (for me). I agree with the comments above.

    What works for me is using biolage ultra hydration conditioner as a leave in. I use a tiny, tiny bit and squish it on my ends and my hair is really moisturized until next wash day

    I also use sulfates to wash to remove build up which seems to have helped a ton.

    Sometimes between washes, I will wet my ponytail in the sink, condition, and rinse again in the sink. It’s pretty quick, and I don’t get all wet which is nice.

    It may be a texture thing but for me, C-W-ROO-C works to keep my ends happy for about a week, sometimes longer. I've taken to putting on the first C about an hour or so before getting in the shower so it's kind of a deep treatment as well.
