What to rotate with LVPNG

So LVPNG has been sitting in my PJ cabinet of doom for months now. I used it once, right when I started CG, and it totally dried me out - or so I thought. I'm a very coarse 3A so I thought it was the protein. Turns out it must've been something else I used in that combo (I think Biotera gel), and my hair LOVES LVPNG. My curls have never been so moisturized, even with things 1,000x thicker.

The problem is I can't use it everyday because of a) possible overconditioning and b) the protein, which I still think could become a problem. For those of you somewhat protein sensitives who use it (and I know there probably aren't many of you), what do you rotate it with? I'm looking for something that's not too thick but will keep the moisturization up. GVP Conditioning Balm was what I used to rotate with, but lately it's not leaving me moisturized enough.

I also love LVPNG, but can't use it all the time, I think because of the protein.

When I want to add moisture, I rotate my LVPNG with EO Rose and Chamomile, which is very moisturizing but doesn't weigh down my 3A hair (unless I use it all the time).

Recently, I've been experimenting with EO Chamomile and Honey, which is not quite as rich as the other one, and then adding a drop of honey to it for extra hold.

When I want less moisture, I rotate my LVPNG with Avalon Organics olive & grape seed conditioner.
