No matter the specific hair type or curl pattern, most naturals struggle with moisture. For some naturals, especially those with tighter curls, getting enough moisture and retaining it can be an issue. For naturals with looser or thinner hair, keeping their hair moisturized without it looking weighed down or greasy can be a struggle. If you’ve been struggling to keep your hair moisturized, keep reading.
Drink plenty of water
Everything starts internally. If you are using the best products but never drinking water or drinking high amounts of sugary drinks, caffeinated drinks or alcohol, you could be potentially causing your hair to dry out. Drinking water helps to keep your body hydrated which extends to your hair, skin and nails. Up your water intake and eat fruits and vegetables that are high in water.
Cowash for extra moisture
Cowashing or conditioner washing, is washing your hair with conditioner in between shampoo washes for a quick curl refresher. Cowashing helps to detangle the hair, restore curls and keep hair well-moisturized without becoming overly dry. Our Miracle RepaiRx Strengthening Conditioner is highly effective when used for a co-wash. This conditioner works fast to replenish hair’s natural oils and promotes healthy growth with rich black castor oil to enhance shine, while nourishing with biotin. Repairs damaged, brittle hair, leaving it soft, smooth and manageable with every use.
Oil treatments for moisture
Oil treatments are a great way to add moisture to natural hair. Our Jamaican Black Castor Oil helps restore life to dry, damaged hair, and helps strengthen and re-grow hair while fighting frizz, flyaways and sealing in moisture for softer, shinier hair.
Conditioning for hydration
Our Honey Miracle Hair Mask is a great deep conditioner to use for dry, damaged or colored treated hair. This luxurious deep conditioner contains raw honey for softer, shinier tresses and jojoba and olive oils, which nourish and heal strands in need of repair. With honey being a natural humectant, it draws moisture to dry, thirsty curls.The result is hair that never looked so good.
Protective styling to lock in moisture
While it’s fun to wear the curls out, wearing protective styles can help to keep your curls well-nourished and moisturized without breakage. Braids, twists, up-dos and faux locs are all great protective styles to wear any season to help keep your hair conditioned. In addition to protective styling, be sure to wear a silk or satin scarf or bonnet or sleep on a silk or satin pillow case at night to maintain moisture.
