4 Tips for Keeping Your Natural Hair Moisturized
Regardless of your hair type and texture, it is always important to ensure that your hair is properly moisturized. Hair that lacks moisture is not only more susceptible to breakage but can stunt the growth of your hair. We believe that naturals should always strive for healthy hair and one very important piece is making sure that hydration is a key step in your hair routine. Take a look below to find out 4 tips that if added into your regimen, will provide moisturized and easier to manage hair!
1. Deep Condition Your Hair Regularly
Suffering from dry, brittle hair? Deep Conditioning will be an essential part of your regimen. This is the process of allowing a deep conditioner to sit on your hair for at least 15 minutes with a conditioning cap after washing your hair. Deep Conditioning your hair provides the opportunity for the product to really penetrate your hair shaft and in turn, strengthens your hair follicles. Our Honey and Sage Deep Conditioner is enriched with key ingredients that help to retain moisture (honey) and serve as a source of key vitamins for your hair (sage) which is perfect for those looking to maintain hydration.
2. Increase the Amount of Times that you Moisturize your Hair
If you only moisturize your hair once or twice every few weeks you may notice that your hair is dry and ridged to the touch. We recommend increasing the number of times that you moisturize your hair, while of course taking an account of your hair needs. Depending on how your hair intakes moisture you may have to even do so daily. To avoid product build-up, try incorporating a lightweight moisturizer such as our Hibiscus Silky Leave-in Conditioner. Not only will it make your hair soft to the touch, it also focuses on preventing problems such as dullness and split ends.
3. Use Products with Ingredients that Promote Moisture
The ingredients in your products play a very big role in actually providing the moisture that your hair craves. Natural ingredients such as honey, aloe vera, and shea butter are examples of ingredients that combat dryness and damaged hair. Water should also always be the first or second ingredient that the product is made of for it to truly be a moisturizer. Be sure to always take a look at product labels and read the first few ingredients to ensure that most of the product is comprised of the ingredients you are looking for.
4. Make Sure You Are Properly Sealing your Hair
Sealing is the process of locking in moisture into your hair shaft. To seal, you would begin with a product that serves as a Leave-in Conditioner and follow it up with a cream to lock in the moisture. You can also add in an oil to further seal in the hydrating products that you added into your hair shaft with a special focus on your ends. When completing this process consistently you will find that your hair remains moisturized and longer lasting hairstyles.
We hope these tips help you on your journey to healthy, moisturized hair! What are your favorite ways to ensure your hair remains moisturized?
