If you have curly natural hair, you may be struggling to keep your hair moisturized.
Curls need moisture to thrive, and if you’re suffering from breakage or your hair has no bounce … dryness could be the #1 reason.
It’s difficult for curly hair to hang on to moisture because of all the tight curls. And the kinkier your hair is, the faster it can develop dryness.
If you’re suffering from dryness, pay close attention to how your hair handles water and product.
Does it absorb water and product easily and then become dry a few hours later? If so, you have high porosity hair.
To combat dryness, hydrate your high porosity hair with water, then seal the cuticle shut right afterward with Mango Moringa Moisture Max Styling Cream and Gel.
If you can’t seem to get water and product into your hair at all, you may have low porosity hair.
Get heat from a warm shower to open the cuticle on low porosity hair before you apply product. Then allow the cold air to naturally seal the cuticles shut when you get out of the shower.
Here are five ways to keep your natural hair moisturized:
Way #1: Get as Much Water As Possible for Your Natural Hair
Plain water is one of the most underestimated beauty items on the planet, and many naturals overlook what it does for hair.
Before you look to spend money on more products or oils, look for ways to get more water into your hair and body.
Grow stronger, healthier, and more elastic hair by hydrating your body. Drink 8-12 cups of quality water throughout the day to grow better hair from the root.
With water, your scalp and follicles will improve, and your hair will grow in healthier.
Apply water to your strands more often too. You don't need to use shampoo or conditioner more than once or twice per week, but you can take frequent water-only showers.
If your curls are extremely dry and breaking, try doing water rinses every day.
A warm water rinse in the shower will open the cuticles, and your hair will get a good dose of daily moisture.
Plus, using water only means your hair won’t be smothered under product build-up. It’s just pure hydration only.
If it takes too much time to rinse your hair every day, another method you can do is to spray your hair with water or aloe vera juice daily.
Daily hydration is your key to keeping moisture on your curls, so make sure you water your hair every day.
