Keeping Natural Hair moisturized

Updated on February 25, 2015
5 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of moisturizing natural hair

when you have natural kinky hair, one of the hardest thing is keeping it moisturized. it can be a hassle, as hair lacking moisture can be so much harder to style and manage on a whole. Without moisture our hair will be more subjected to dryness, dullness and breakage; also, keeping hair moisturized can help in retaining length, if that's also a goal (OH YES!!). So here's a few tips to keep that hair MOISTURIZED.....

  • Reduce the amount of washing. Your hair doesn't need to be wash more than once every one (1) or two (2) weeks. By over washing or washing your hair too often, this can strip away natural oils, thus resulting in dryer hair. But if you do wish to wash your hair more than once during the week, you can try Co-Washing it - using just the conditioner to wash your hair.
  • Pre-poo your hair. This can be done by simply basing your hair with an oil of your choice during your wash process, if your hair gets excessively dry when washing. Also, if you have organic honey in your cabinet, just add a little with your oil and lather on your hair, keep it for about10-15 minutes before washing. This leaves your hair softer, lustrous and more manageable.
  • Deep Condition. Deep conditioning is really good for dry, damaged hair and your hair on a whole. Try to deep condition hair every two (2) weeks or at least once a month. This does wonders for your hair in terms of softness, moisture and manageability. You can also make your own D-I-Y Deep Conditioner. For a quick and simple one, you can combine honey with a conditioner of your choice, along with coconut oil ( can be substituted with any oil you may have); mix together and you have yourself a deep conditioner.
  • Use Creams instead of Gels.
    Gels can leave your hair flaky, dry and can result in breakage.Creams are less harsh on the hair and if the cream is thick enough, it can give your hair the extra hold it may need, plus the bonus of moisture.
  • Spray It. In a small spray bottle you can combine water, conditioner of your choice and any oil you may have (coconut, olive, castor etc.) and use in your daily or nighttime moisture regimen. This can be used during the day and at nights along with a satin wrap or cap or even a steam cap to seal in the moisture. This leaves your hair really soft and easier to style.
  • Lastly, but surely not least, Drink Lots of WATER! Your diet has a lot to do with your overall health and yes, this includes your hair. drinking water is like moisturizing your hair from the inside out. so eat right and drink up ....
