It is important to understand what a true moisturizer is. In order to be a moisturizer a product must have WATER. If it does not have water then it is not a moisturizer. Products like butters, pomades and oils are considered sealants. Which means you must use water or a water based moisturizing product on your hair (like a leave in conditioner) first, then you follow up with an oil or butter to prevent moisture loss and lock the moisture in.
