Default hair moisturizer suggestions

I'm looking for a rinse-out moisturizer to use in between my shampoo and leave-in. I usually try to stay in the same product line, but I'm wondering if there are some moisturizers that just work with anything. Anyone familiar with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Cream or Pink Oil Moisturizer? I don't think I need a full conditioner, just something to add moisture.

Thanks

Paul Mitchell The Rinse sounds like a good choice for you.

Other moisturizing, light rinse-outs are:
Curl Junkie Give 'Em the Slip!
Curl Junkie Healthy Condition Daily Conditioner
CurlFriends Nourish Rinse Out Conditioner
Curlisto Botanical Rinse
Ouidad Balancing Rinse
Oyin Honey Hemp

HTH!

I personally would not use an oil-based moisturizer between my shampoo and leave in but that's just me. My wet hair doesn't respond well to oil or glycerin.

After shampoo, I use a conditioner that gives me a good moisture hit and that will absorb into my hair and detangle it. I rinse that out and put in a moisturizing, texture defining leave in. Only after I've gelled will I scrunch a thin film of oil (a drop of castor oil rubbed between my palms) on the ends.

Great moisture/detangling conditioners--
John Masters Citrus & Neroli Detangler
Robert Craig
Trader Joe Nourish
Elucence Moisture Balancing

you can try using essential oils such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oil etc. You can try blended beauty they have soft curls and swirls and butter me up. You can try Carols Daughter hair milk or hair butter, Karens Body beuatiful hair milk, curls milk shake. If you want some in store products I like hollywood beauty carrot oil.

Those are great suggestions. I was kind of looking for something I could just go to Ulta or Sally's or Whole Foods and buy versus ordering on the Internet, but you all gave great advice.

Oops, sorry. Although, you can buy Paul Mitchell the Rinse at Ulta, though, and Sally's has the generic version.

I'm currently using Lanza's leave-in and was going to stick with that, but I also loved Paul Mitchell's The Conditioner and was thinking about going all Paul Mitchell (Instant Moisture Shampoo, Daily Treatment and The Conditioner). I might do that.
