I don't have 4a hair but you guys seem to know the most about sealing so I'm posting this here.
I currently use jojoba oil over my LI to seal in moisture (have issues with dry, split ends). But with the high humidity lately, I'm also using a pomade to battle the frizz from humidity. With LI, oil, gel and pomade - it's a lot of products & I end up washing my hair more often.
I was wondering, since it is mostly oils/butters anyway - if I can use my pomade to seal? This way, I can eliminate a product, and still get frizz-free hair. Assuming it will work to seal in moisture.
Ingredients for John Masters Pomade:
Olea Europaea (Extra Virgin Olive Oil*), Apis Mellifera (Beeswax), Mangifera Indica (Mango Butter), Orbygnia Speciosa (Babassu Oil), Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba Oil*), Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ Oil*), Essential Oils of Laurus Nobilis (Bay Laurel), Cedrus Atlantica (Cedar Atlas+), Abies Balsamea (Balsam Fir) (Fir Balsam*), Cryptocaria Massoia (Massoia), Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamins A, C & E)
That's what I have been doing in this hot sun (Southern CA). I have been skipping the oil and using a heavier pomade to seal. I have tried Alba's Un-Petroleum Jelly, and AfroVeda's pomade for men. I find I have to wait a few minutes to add my styler to let the pomade wamr up and soak into my hair, but otherwise no great departure from my normal routine.
Had great hair day yesterday doing this despite the dew point being around 70.
I think combing the pomade through wet hair spread it more evenly and prevented frizz better.
