Lotion?

OKay, this might sound stupid, but I'm fairly uneducated on curls: Can I put lotion in my hair? Like Aveeno lotion. Or is that going to be bad? I saw a product called "shea butter" Curlmart and was like "isn't that a lotion?" That's where the question came from.
Always,

    I like the idea of it since it's so difficult for me to buy CG hair products where I live. I just tried it yesterday but it was so hot that I couldn't wear my hair down. I'll experiment :blob2:

    I've thought about using some of the body butters that I've seen because those are more available than the kind for hair... at least in my area.

    The one time I used lotion on my hair, it dulled it. Which makes sense because skin lotions are mean to leave a matte finish not make skin shiny.
