Daily Moisturizer

When you wear twist, twist outs, braids, braids outs, coils, rod sets, puffs, ect... What do you moisturize with, a spray leave in, cream, butter, both, or hair lotion? What moisturizer for what style or do you use the same for every style? Ladies please let me know what you do day to day to moisturize your styles and keep them looking great! I appreciate any feedback!
I use different moisturisers for different styles. If I'm in a wash n go (extremely rare), puff, twists or braids, I spritz with a mixture of whatever leave-in I'm using at the time (at the moment a kimmaytube inspired leave-in), water and a couple of drops of oil mixed in a spray bottle. If I'm wearing a dry set (like a twist out, braid out, etc), I use Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream. I can't use any kind of spritz, or liquid moisturiser on my dry sets as they quickly frizz and turn to a mass of cotton within a few hours, which would be fine if I hadn't spent all that time the day before twisting my hair.
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far

Glad I could help. Also totally forgot to say (and I don't know how, as its a pretty major part of my routine now), that I sometimes use Oyin Juices & Berries instead of my leave-in spray. It works really well for me (and I have dry dryyyyyyyyy hair), and I love the smell. I use it at night as well if I'm retwisting, and a little bit in the morning before I get in the shower, and then seal/I take down the twists with a bit of QB Amla Olive Heavy Cream or BRBC again afterwards- just a little bit.

I can't use it on loose hair though, as it contains loads of humectants and I spend most of my time these days in a humid environment, so major shrinkage.

Lately Ive been using a spray bottle mix of aloe vera gel and giovanni conditioner and so far it has been working very well. I consider this kind of a leave-in/daily moisturizer. I like it because it doesnt coat my hair alot like shea butters can: I like the puffiness of my hair n butters sometimes weigh it down when I dont want it to.

Also, when I finish spraying my hair I rub oil throughout my hair (especially the ends) I'm using the growth oil from Hydratherma naturals hair line (chech YT, its great but costly) But I also have a Vitamin E oil that I've added avocado/emu/almond oil to that i use which works just as good.
