Moisture – the struggle is real
OK so lets get right to it, you want moisturized strands and nothing seems to work. There is a sea of products that claim to help and underneath your bathroom cabinet you have your own retail store.
First, you need to understand that if you’re natural the structure of your hair is going to make it a little more difficult. You see the outermost layer of the hair strand is called the cuticle, which can be compared to a scaly structure ( like shingles on a roof, or the scales on a fish). When the cuticle is loosened, or raised, moisture escapes and guess what, when you have a curly texture, the hair is twisty and going in different directions so the cuticle is naturally loosened.
Here are 2 tips to help.
- Since one cause for moisture lose is the scalps ability to produce natural oils, you definitely need to have a boar bristle brush in your arsenal (available at the salon). This will help stimulate the scalp and also evenly distribute the natural oils to the ends. Plastic bristles can break dry hair. Invest in a brush that will help not damage.
- Condition overnight when hair is free. I recommend Design Essentials Almond Butter, (available at salon) It can be used as your regular condition and as your hair treatment. Apply on damp hair, cover with plastic cap, then scarf. Shampoo and condition in the morning. your strands will thank you.
