Okay, so I have been stressing out about my hair for almost a year now. I've practically become an expert at hair.

I'm a "Caucasian" male from the Mediterranean region. I have extremely curly/thick/frizzy/dry hair naturally. Most people don't believe me, but it's really comparable to that of African Americans rather than other Caucasians that have "afros".
I've had it relaxed for a good 9 months. It was "straight" for the first month and then the frizz factor and dryness started coming back in. Since then, I've had it relaxed 3 times. After a while, I attempted using different products, such as John Frieda's line. They didn't do anything for the dryness so I resorted to not showering my hair for a good 3-4 days so that it could get back some of its natural oils. However, the problem is not solved. Once I shower it again, it "poofs" up. Certain strands become frizzy and my hair, especially the thick back, becomes unecessarily dry. For the last 2 weeks, I've been using Kerastace - Hair Relaxer Mask Conditioner, occasionally without shampooing because it tends to make my hair dryer, as I've proven. This has been satisfactory. However, a problem arose again. I have to use a good 1/3-1/2 of it to actually see any "results" on my hair. Being an expensive line, I don't have enough money to contribute 40 bucks on it once or twice a month.
Would anyone know of any product or any technique that I would be able to use on my hair?
Thanks for the support. :]
