after co-washing and squeezing out any excess water, i allow my hair to dry wrapped up in a t-shirt for, let's say, 30 minutes or so.  while it's damp, i apply V05 Moisture Milks Conditioner as a leave in and begin detangling, then i apply Hollywood Beauty Olive Creme Headdress as a moisturizer, focusing specifically on the ends but distributing it throughout my hair.  finally, i just put my hair into a bun and place a satin wrap over it and call it a day.  the next morning when i unravel the bun, my hair is moisturized but stiff, especially the top of my head.  can anyone explain why this is happening and what i can do to prevent this?  i want my hair to dry as soft and touchable as i know it can Unhappy

Seems to me that your hair believe it or not is dry. You need to deep condition with a super moisturizing conditioner.

 Also check those products you are using and make sure there is no mineral oil in it. That makes your hair stiff.

Also, using the conditioner as a leave in may also be making your hair stiff. HTH.

Try looking at the ingredients of the products that you're using. They might contain proteins which too much of can cause your hair to become hard.

Sounds like a protein buildup. Deep condition with heat and that should help it.
