Moisturizing Spray

Q: Can you recommend a good leave-in moisturizing spray, preferably with all (or mostly) natural ingredients? All of the ones I've tried dry up a little while after spraying them and they either leave a sticky film or make my hair feel drier than it was before I sprayed it on.
I'm looking more for one that actually keeps my hair moist the way activator spray used to keep Jheri curls moist. Basically, something that's not sticky or filmy and not apt to dry out right after it goes on.

A: A quick search on the internet reveals all the products available from the main line name brands in hair care (Jheri Redding, Queen Helene, Nexxus, Revlon, etc.) However, there are also a number of smaller, new companies that offer all-natural hair products which might be worth a look.
Mixed Chicks makes a line of shampoos, deep conditioners, and leave-in conditioners for all types of ethnically curly hair specially formulated to help manage and maintain the hair. They also offer products specifically for men who want all-natural care for their ethnic hair with their HIS Mix line.
You can also take a look at the natural products created and sold by Treasured Locks. They specifically offer Nubian Heritage Raw Shea Butter Daily Moisture Hair Mist which is designed as a leave-in conditioning and hydrating spray that can be used anytime and anywhere. It's lightweight and non-greasy and is great to keep on hand for "refreshing" thirsty hair.
