Moisture is the whole thing when it comes to your natural hair health. You may have heard it over and over again before. Still plenty of you struggle with keeping your kinks, curls and coils well moisturized. Everybody’s hair is different from each other, and what your own dry hair needs, may be a bit different from any other’s dry hair. Probably you may be guilty of one of our given ineffective moisturizing exercises. You may be conscious with these common hair care tips already. And still you are here, because your hair is dry. Feel free to check them out. These will surely help you.
- Moisturizing hair which has the product buildup
The motive of moisturizing your dry hair is to apply the water based product which penetrates the outer layer of the shores and infuse the inner layer with the water. If there is so much product or dirt on your outer layer, then there is a little bit of chance that any kind of moisturizing product you are applying can make it to the inner layer.
2. Using oil or butter as the moisturizers
With an exception of some of the oils, like the coconut oil, which can penetrate the shore, the oils and the butters can sit on the beyond of your shore because they are very much sealants, not the moisturizers. Their motive is to lock in the moisture, not to apply it. If your natural hair is feeling too dry, and you invest oils or the butters, you are just hefting down your dry hair, with making it a bit more brittle and susceptible as well to the breakage.
3. Using the water based products without the sealing
Just like the oils and the butters are not effective as much as the moisturizers, the water based products, and the water itself is not as much effective at the moisturizing unless it is sealed in. The water quickly vanish out of the inner layer unless a sealing product is used to the deck it in. The spritzes can be a great daily moisturizing infusion as they contain the water that penetrates the outer layer as well as the oils which can seal the water in. Whilst they are not heavy duty sufficient to provide the long term moisturizing, they are very much great as the daily refresher in between the moisture and the seal sessions.
4. The under moisturizing
Just like your own body can be a very thirsty way before of your throat indeed feels parched, your natural hair can need the moisture way before it feels dry and crunchy. You can start by moisturizing your hair once a day, at least. If your hair feels mushy and wet in the following hours, you can reap your moisturizing routine down to every other day. Still, if it feels dry, then you may need to keep your moisturizing routine up to twice a day.
5. Neglecting the re-moisturizing process after a shampoo
When it comes to the moisturizing, applying shampoo is a little bit of a paradox. You are soaking your hair with the water, as well as stripping your shores of the dirt and the natural oils that can help to lock in the moisture. So, your hair is getting dryer in a way, when it gets wetter. The screechy, the super dry feeling your natural hair has after the shampoo is lack of the lubrication, and it’s very critical that it can be replaced. You have to be sure to deep condition your hair after every time of shampoo and you need to follow up with a bit of moisturizes sealed.
