My winter routine for frizzy hair

This cold and harsh winter is putting my hair to the test, result?
My hair is hard to control, frizzy and very dry to the touch. My old routine wasn’t working anymore and I had to adapt my treatments to the cold season. I’ve added a mask and a new product to my usual shampoo and conditioner for curly hair. 

These are the products that I’m using at the moment: 
- Garnier Ultra Dolce shampoo with avocado oil and shea butter; 
- Avon Advance Techniques frizz-control conditioner
- Pantene Aqua Light intensive treatment; 
- Avon Naturals conditioning balm with almond oil and avocado
- Avon Advance Techniques damage repair 3D Rescue.

The Garnier shampoo with avocado oil and shea butter is formulated for curly or wavy hair prone to frizz, it has a pleasant and light fragrance and doesn’t contain parabens. I’ve been using it for a few weeks, but it seems to work pretty well at the moment. 
After shampooing I use, as usual, the Avon Advance Techniques frizz control conditioner, and immediately I use the Pantene Aqua Light intensive treatment to combat dryness. 
Pantene is a brand I don’t use willingly but, since this tube was lying at home and no one was using it, I thought I should give it a try. I apply it from root to tips, I leave it 2-3 minutes on my hair then I wash it off with warm water. 
I gently squeeze my hair and I wrap into a turban and I expect till my hair is less wet. 
If I have enough time, I apply the Avon 3D rescue treatment on the tips and on the length of the hair. This product is created for very damaged hair and must be applied before the other styling products, on almost dry hair. 
It's perfect in case of split ends, but it deserves a separate post so I can describe it better. 
After treating my hair, I dedicate myself to the styling: I usually use the conditioning balm from the Avon Naturals line, I blow dry my hair with an air diffuser and I get defined and very scented curls or I apply the Bilba HD curling mousse with Argan extract (2,50€ approximately) for lighter hair. 
If I follow this routine and I finish it with the almond oil and avocado conditioner, my hair is much softer but gets easily dirty and oily. 
I have to wash my hair more often, but I don’t consider it a big issue, since I had very oily hair in the past and I used to shampoo frequently. This is the result with the Avon Naturals conditioning balm and without the Avon 3D treatment.
It looks crazy but in real life was better.
