Yep, you can use both butters and oils. It's advised to use an oil that 'coats' the hair, meaning an oil which has big molecules that cannot penetrate the hair shaft. Then you get a protective layer, so to speak. And the moisture is kept in.
I always seal when my hair is wet and after I've applied my leave in. I usually just seal my ends (from end to about 10 cm up) because my hair is easily weighed down. I usually seal with jojoba oil. Sometimes I first apply some argan oil from extra nourishment and then I seal with jojoba. But usually it's just jojoba. Beauty Without Cruelty leave in is pretty moisturizing by itself.
Oils that do not penetrate the hair (and are therefore suitable as hair sealers):
- Sweet almond
Oils that do penetrate the hair shaft:
- Sunflower seed
