Default Protein-free moisturizers???

So, I've been looking for other options or alternatives of protein-free moisturizers, whether store-bought, online, or homemade. I'm still feeling my hair out for what it likes and am always up for trying different things until I really conquer my MYSTERIOUS hair ...

So, what protein-free moisturizers (conditioners, leave-ins, WHATEVER) have you tried that you either like or don't like?

What routine(s) have or have not worked for you?

I just dilute Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose with water for my daily moisturizer. I'm pleased w/ it- not sure if it's a holy grail though.

Thx for the help ladies...it's been a while b/c I have been into blogging, CurlyNikki and youtube video making. Anywho, I have fallen in love with Oyin Hairdew. It works WONDERS for 2nd/3rd day moisturization. I also use their BSP for sealing and their Shine & Define for styling. Darcy's Botanical Vanilla Delight leave-in runs close 2nd to Oyin (may be a tie for 1st b/c smell doesn't linger). Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Oil Heavy Cream (whatever the long name is) works GREAT but is on the more expensive side...so I don't use it too often. While I was away, I had been experimenting and falling more in love with my hair b/c its working for me right now...I have conquered a routine and the dryness ENEMY!!! Now, I have to focus on keeping its friend & my foe (Ms. Fairy Knot) away from my Precious!!!

I use the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Moisturizer. Some people consider avocado oil to be protein...? But I don't see why, so I consider it protein free. Anyway, it leaves my hair moisturized for days. Amazing.

My hair does ok with avocado b/c I like the Garnier Triple Nutrition which has avocado in it. I have yet to try the avocado DC using the whole avocado b/c I'm actually kind of scared since peop do use it as a protein treatment. Anyway, this may sound crazy, but what color label is that Shea Moisture Raw Shea Moisturizer? I ask b/c I have tried the yellow-colored label line and didn't like anything from it b/c it left my hair feeling like straw (Deep Masque Treatment). I am interested in trying their black soap (black label) line b/c of what I have heard from other naturals. I just have to find it
