Keeping our hair moisturized is one of the biggest challenges when on a healthy hair journey, as hydrated hair will experience less breakage.
we can try keeping our hair moisturized by some of these methods:
Finish every wash with a cold rinse, washing our hair with warm water helps to remove dirts and products build up, it also increases the hair porosity i.e the cuticles open up so that all the good stuff from your shampoo and conditioner are easily absorbed. Rinsing hair with cold water at the end of washing process will help to flatten the cuticle and lock in moisture.
- Always try to apply moisturizers to your hair before you applying natural oils and shea butter. oil is not a moisturizer, oil and water don't mix hence when used, oil should be applied last so as to help hair retain moisture and natural oils and shea butter are excellent in locking in moisture.
- Drink lots of water; a lot of hydration operates from the inside of our bodies.
- sleep with satin bonnet at night or use satin pillow case, because cotton absorbs the moisture from your hair a lot more than satin does and it is also more smoother than cotton so making your hair less vulnerable to breakage.
- Also try wearing protective hairstyle when the weather is harsh. when its very hot or windy hair tends to dry out quickly.
