Moisturize?

Hey hey,

I'm about a year and a half in to my natural journey and just have a quickie question.  I know the best method is to just let those babies be, but I've also seen some info regarding dreads sometimes needing to be moisturized if they start drying out and feeling prone to breaking.  Mine don't feel like they would break, necessarily, but they do feel very dry.  I'm thinking maybe I need to back off another day between washes to let the natural oils get in there a bit more.  I'm down to only two or three washes per week depending on what I'm doing and how much I'm perspiring - I work outside on the weekends from August through October.

My question is: Is there anything in addition to reducing the number of times I wash per week which might help with the issue?

I have been using a generic, low-residue shampoo with zinc, no conditioner, no additional moisturizers of any kind, no hair products.

I'll look in to switching shampoo.  That might be just enough in itself.  Is there any in particular you would recommend, or should I look in to making my own?
