It is always important to keep your hair moisturised for many great reasons. Moisturised hair usually repels breakage and moisture keeps your hair healthy and shiny.
So here are 5 ways to keep your hair moisturised:
- Moisturise and seal the moisture daily:
It is very important to moisturise and seal daily with a water-based leave-in conditioner (could be water, aloe vera juice, a product or even a conditioner) and seal in the moisture with an oil or butter, like coconut oil or shea butter.
2. Wet hair twice a week:
Saturating hair with water helps to replenish hair’s moisture making it soft, supple and shiny. Consider cowashing or wetting hair during the middle of the week and remember to seal moisture in with oil afterwards.
3. Replace conditioner with deep condition:
If you find that your hair is really dry, consider only using deep conditioners instead of regular conditioner.
4. Oil doesn.t moisturise hair:
This is unfortunately a natural hair myth. While oils like coconut and olive oil can penetrate the hair, they cannot add moisture to the hair. Moisture can only be added through the use of a water-based product. So if you find that your hair is dry and you solely use oil, then this lack of moisture is more than likely the reason why.
5. Don’t forget your scalp:
Consider applying water or aloe vera juice to scalp once or twice a week to keep the scalp supple and prevent dandruff and itching.
