Natural hair is naturally dry. It is easy for straight hair to receive the natural oils produced from the scalp as it easily travels down the hair shaft. It’s more difficult for the natural oils to travel down the naturally curly, coily hair shaft. It is especially difficult to reach the ends of the hair which is the oldest part of our strands. With the cooler months approaching you might find your hair needs more moisture than in the warmer months.
I will share two simple tips to keep your natural hair moisturized. Moisturized hair is happy healthy hair.
Tip # 1
Moisturize daily with a water based moisturizer. The BEST water based moisturizer is WATER. (How simple is that?) I keep a spray bottle with plain old fashion water. I lightly mist my natural hair every day with water. I mist it in the morning in the warmer months and at night in the colder months.
After you moisturize your hair you want to seal your hair. Let me quickly explain term "seal" for the newly natural or for anyone who might not know what that term means. If you are adding moisture to your hair daily you will want to seal that moisture into your hair strands. Without a sealant the moisture you just added will naturally escape the hair shaft before it has a chance to nourish the hair. You can seal the shaft with products that are cream & butter based such as shea butter or oil based such as almond oil or castor oil.
If you have thicker hair, try a butter or cream to seal your moisture. On the other hand if you have thin soft hair, try oils. You may find butter to be too heavy for your hair.
