I just finished reading Andre Walker hair book. He said that lotion can be used for the hair because they contain many of the same ingredients found in more expensive products.

I don't know about moisturizing, but when I was in college (many years ago) and ran out of Miss Cool setting lotion, I used body lotion and my hair had curls the next day when I took it down.

I never have, but my favorite moisturizer has the same ingredients as lotions. Actually some lotions have less protein in them which I know is attractive for some. I'm sure not all of them would work the way you want, but I know lotion would be good.

i always figured that lotion certainly can be used on the hair. But i don't think i've found a lotion that is thin and light enough to apply to my hair. Most lotions are heavy/greasy... any suggestions???

Absolutely!! Any lotion with a high shea or cocoa content would probably work well. The ingredients are the same for the most part. It won't hurt you hair if that's the concern. Natural products are more likely to be multi-functional.

I used a skin lotion as a detangler for months but it eventually left my hair dry and brittle. It did work well though.

I remember seeing Minnie Driver on the Style channel, and she said she used Palmer's Cocoa Butter in her hair as a moisturizer. Whatever works.

hmmmmm..... I thought about this too. My friend with BSL hair says that she always puts whatever lotion leftover on her hands from moisturizing her skin into her hair. But she says she does it for it to smell good.

I use a Loreal Vive leave in that is discontinued (Loreal Vive Smooth-Intense Anti Frizz cream) and I am replacing it with the Garnier Sleek and Shine Leave in. They have just about the same ingredients except that the Loreal uses Camelina Sativa Seed oil and the Garnier uses Avocado oil and Apricot Kernel Oil. They don't have protein, mineral oil or pertroleum.

The Garnier is just as good as the Loreal. I just use them daily on my hair and then seal it all with Kemi Oil. Sometime I seal with Redken heat glide.
