Which oils to add to my detangling condish?

Hi!

I BC'ed and shortly after I left the country for a while. Now that I'm back I'm in full PJ mode.

My hair is braided now but last time I washed and detangled I was low on condish so I added olive oil, sesame oil and a little honey. My detangling session was fine/ a little easier than usual, but after rinse out my hair was divinely soft. It just felt amazing.
I haven't settled on a detanging condish yet (I'm buying/ trying many) but I plan to add oils (and honey) to my detangling conditioners from here on out. Any recommendations to which oils would be best to add to my conditioner?
I just bought some argan oil and I use castor on my edges and shea on my hair

    Olive oil is my staple oil. I really like it for detangling. Nice and slippery.

    I'm thinking sweet almond, hemp, avocado, safflower and olive in the conditioner and using jojoba to seal with.
