Ingredient(s) to slow setting/evaporation in Hydrous Product

Hello,

I am developing a hydrous hair clay product. My current formula works, but sets/tackifies rather quickly once the product is emulsified in ones palms and added to the hair. 

Quick rundown on my ingredients. I can post a complete recipe if needed as I don't have it at my office where I am currently. 

Water 
kaolin clay
peg-8 beeswax
castor oil
jojoba oil
shea butter
Polysorbate-20
Peg-40 HCO
glycol 
pvp 1.5%
Cyclomethicone/dimethicone
fragrance
preservative

My question, what can possibly be added to slow the absorption/setting to allow longer open time for styling/combing without effecting the holding properties?

Thank you for your time.
