Red face Lotion?

OKay, this might sound stupid, but I'm fairly uneducated on curls: Can I put lotion in my hair? Like Aveeno lotion. Or is that going to be bad? I saw a product called "shea butter" Curlmart and was like "isn't that a lotion?" That's where the question came from.

I use hand/body lotion in my hair when I'm out & about, which doesn't contain any of the petro chemicals by any of its names, lanolin, kaolin (clay), emu oil & beeswax. I'm just picky that way. PEG-whatever hydrogenated castor oil is OK.

I like the idea of it since it's so difficult for me to buy CG hair products where I live. I just tried it yesterday but it was so hot that I couldn't wear my hair down. I'll experiment

I've thought about using some of the body butters that I've seen because those are more available than the kind for hair... at least in my area.

The one time I used lotion on my hair, it dulled it. Which makes sense because skin lotions are mean to leave a matte finish not make skin shiny.
