Since joining this board, I don't really think that anything I try in my hair is weird anymore. But when I was in high school I used to always use baby oil in my wet hair. When it dried, it wasn't greasy just shiny and soft. I have always had dry hair so I needed the oil. I also used to use Lubriderm lotion and once when I was at college orientation and forgot my hair supplies I used my friend's massage lotion from the Body Shop to do my hair!
