Default Moisturizing hair after it has been dryed.

Hi ladies,
I am new to this site and I started transitioning in November 2008. I am wondering what kind of products you ladies use on your hair after it has been blowdryed to keep it from being dry and brittle. I've tried the Patene Relaxed and Natural daily oil cream moisturizer, but I did not like it. It is too heavy and it weighs the hair down. I just need something to moisturize the relaxed ends while I am transitioning. Thanks!

Hi, i'm new too. I've been transitioning since sept. 08. Usually when i feel that my hair is dried out i co-wash it again...but if i have no time. I have a spray bottle with a chilled green tea and olive oil mixture (just brewed tea put in the fridge and like a tbsp or two of olive oil) i spritz my hair with that just so it's damp not soaking wet and then put a quarter size amount of Africa's Best oil throughout hair. Don a bun and it's stays pretty moisturized. Also I don't know your routine but make sure you're sleeping with some type of hair protection like a silk bonnet, do-rag, or on a silk pillow. It really helps keep moisture.

Hope this helps!

p.s. shake spritz bottle before spraying so that the oil mixes with the green tea.
