HOW TO MOISTURISE DRY NATURAL HAIR

One of the challenges of having and maintaining natural hair is keeping it moisturised and retaining the moisture. Hence, sealing in the moisture applied is equally important as moisturising. There are different methods used in moisturising natural hair, the basics are

  • LOC: Liquid or Leave-in, Oil & Cream
  • LCO: Liquid, Cream & Oil
  • LO: Liquid & Oil

The order in which you apply products to your hair is very important. Hair type (3a, 3b, 4b, 4c, e.t.c.) and porosity (how your hair absorbs and lose moisture applied to it) determine which method works best for your hair. My hair type is 4C and porosity is low. I find that the best method that works for moisturising my hair is LCO.

Liquid: water is the best moisturiser for natural hair, whether water in its pure form or water-based moisturiser, a leave-in conditioner. As long as the liquid is applied first, all other layers will slow than evaporation.

PRODUCTS RECOMMENDATION

  • Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor oil leave-in conditioner
  • Cantu Shea Butter leave-in conditioning repair cream

The problem with natural hair is retaining the moisture applied, resulting in DRYNESS, hence the need to seal in the moisture using Cream &/or Oil.

Cream: a butter based, creamy moisturiser or styler to further moisturise the hair. The cream can also provide the hair with some definition or hold.

PRODUCTS RECOMMENDATION

  • Shea Moisture coconut and hibiscus curl enhancing smoothie
  • Cantu shea butter coconut curling cream

Oil: using your favourite oil to seal in the moisture applied and keep the hair moisturised longer. I use my DIY whipped shea butter which is shea butter and other oils ( coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil, Jamaican Black castor oil, peppermint oil & tea tree oil)

It’s about trial and error to know which method works best for your hair.

  • love this posting! I use the LOC method for my hair and it seems to keep its moisture for about 3-4 days max and then I just make sure to keep the scalp oiled (coconut oil).

  • Such a nice post dear.
    Thanks for sharing

  • I use the LCO method for my low porosity hair too. Very informative post.
