    Depending on texture and porosity you have a wide range of choices from natural oils to Vaseline! LoL!

    I wouldn't use Vaseline though.

    Things like Jojoba oil, Olive Oil, and Castor Oil are usually the most common oils that people use. Even Grapseed Oil is a good one.

    Olive oil works great for me. 3c hair , super thick when dry so my hair screams," moisturize me"

    I think you should consider the texture of your strands. My hair is fine so some oils like EVOO tend to be too greasy for sealing. If I use castor i have to use very little and no other oil. Lighter oils do better for me but if your hair is coarse heavy might be better. Butters are an option.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    I like to mist in sections with water and coconut oil. I am looking for something lighter though bc I notice a lot of buildup mid week and I don't like that. I think I may try grapeseed next.

    This is true! No two heads of curls (even if they look very similar) are alike. Also, something could work great in the summer, but not so much in the winter. The best thing to do is to experiment until you find products that work specifically for your hair.

    Normally, I use Tresemme Naturals on drippy wet hair along with Biotera Gel, then seal it with a little jojoba oil but that doesn't seem to be enough in the winter. (I just don't get those bouncy 2nd/3rd day curls with it.) My local Walgreens just recently started carrying the Shea Moisture line and now I found that my hair loves the Curl Enhancing Smoothie. (Otherwise, I just use my own whipped shea butter mix. It includes aloe vera gel, honey, jojoba, almond and vitamin E oils. Great for my dry hands, too!)

    I also make a spray mix with water, aloe vera gel and jojoba oil (and/or whatever light oil strikes my fancy that day... olive, avocado, grapeseed...). I use that for 2nd/3rd day hair and it seems to help combat the dryness.

    i use oils and sea butter depending on how dry my hair is, if its really dry then ill use shea butter, if its not, then ill use coconut oil or somthing along those lines.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    Depending on my hair, I use either, olive oil & water or a good leave in for moisture such as shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie or Giovanni Direct Leave In Conditioner.

    Also, you may want to try the Curly Girl Method whip is something that I am considering trying.
