What's a good moisturizer while transitioning?

Ok. So I'm 4 months post now and I just took out my braids yesterday. I washed, deep conditioned, trimmed, pressed and curl my hair. it feels soooo good. The conditioner really made my hair feel amazing BUT!!! I really need good moisturizer especially for days when I straighten my hair. I have Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter but I can't stand the smell at times. I was looking at her Tui Hair Smoothie, and Mimosa Hair Honey. I was gonna pick up Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercremé but I changed my mind (the sample bottle is $9.99 at Ricky's. are you kidding me?!?! plus I feel like I wouldn't like it...).

So does anyone know of any good moisturizers?

    I think I found my HGs this week with 2 Qhemet Biologics products. I use the Burdock Root as a moisturizer and the Amla and olive one as a sealer. My hair has never felt this moisturized. I highly recommend.
    Hair: 3a, normal porosity and elasticity
    My hair loves: Vatika and Bhringraj oils, adores henna.
    My HGs: Bobeam's shampoo bars, CJAO, CJRM, Original Moxie's Hair Bling, Terressentials,

    See, I bought it and I feel like I need more moisture. The smells is wonderful. It's just the back that needs the moisture the most. It gets soooo dry really fast and it starts to look bad. When I do bantu knots, I use Shea moisture Curl & Style milk, which is wonderful because I can feel the moisture in my hair. But when I use it as a moisturizer for the back, it doesn't last. If I feel my "kitchen" looks too dry, I put a little Eco styler to smooth it out, which only curls up minutes later. Do you put the QPMango-Olive oil butter when your hair is wet or when it's dry?

    Ok, cuz I put it on when my hair is dry. I'm so used to greasing my scalp (when I was relaxed)and now I'm natural it's like I change all of that. I put some coconut oil and by the time I inhale and exhale I need more in my hair!

    Try this Organix Coconut Milk Serum. It works well preventing frizz and breakage.
