I don't know if the As I Am leave-in would be moisturizing enough for your hair, LG. If your hair is drinking mayo you'd need a whole bottle of it for one use! It's a very light, watery product. It's great at helping with frizz and keeping tangles away, but it's not moisturizing. I use As I Am Hydration Elation Conditioner 2-4x a month for heavy-duty moisture, and it's great. It's not a protein treatment - just soothing hydration.
