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.
