Oil as a leave-in?

Some brilliant people on this forum just introduced me to the joys of using oil after a shower as a leave-in and helped me have my first good hair day in probably a year. I'm a total convert.

I've been using standard castor oil, but I'm wondering if there are other oils I should give a shot. Any recommendations? I have super thick 3A/3B hair, for reference.
Currently using:
Cleanser: SM Curl and Shine Shampoo, DevaCurl Low Poo, Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
Co-Wash: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle
Conditioner: DevaCurl Decadance One Condition
DT: The Mane Choice Green Tea & Carrot Deep Conditioning Mask
Leave-In: SM Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
Styler: KCCC, CK, LA Looks SG, DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel

    I tried this the other day with coconut oil and it worked out well, I have fine hair but it seems to like coconut oil a lot. I only used a small blob/pea sized amount. My hair is 3a fine, easily weighed down and very porous from highlights so not sure how it would work on your hair.
