Moisturize your hair daily (between washes)
This doesn’t mean dunking your hair under water daily but it does mean introducing some type of moisture to your hair every day. The easiest way I’ve found to do this is with a spray bottle. It’s a really quick and effective way to moisturize your hair and takes about 45 seconds.
Simply fill the spray bottle with your favorite liquid moisturizer (for instance water or aloe vera juice), lightly mist your hair and top that off with your favorite oil, serum, or cream moisturizer.
I do this every morning when fluffing my bed hair but a lot of people find this more beneficial to do in the evening before going to bed. How does this help minimize your natural hair regimen?
Well it’s sort of a proactive step. Taking 45 seconds a day to moisturize your hair keeps it from drying out between washes. Dry hair can become matted, break off, or result in excessive tangles. All these things can make the hair harder to manage and style adding minutes or even hours to your natural hair regimen.
Find an All-In-One product that works for your hair
They also provide a healthy shine, thicken my strands and protect my ends. What I love most about these products is that they are so rich and long lasting.
I only apply them to my hair Sunday, after washing and their effects last the entire week! So, between these two products and water, there’s no need to use much anything else on my hair as far as styling is concerned.
Finding an all-in-one hair product is a great way to minimize your hair routine, it allows you to reduce the amount of products used on your hair, which will save you time and money.
Everyone’s hair and hair experiences are different so you may have to do a little research and experimenting to find a product that really works for you. Aside from black castor oil and shea butter, I’ve heard many testimonials about olive oil, hair grease, coconut oil, and flaxseed gel.
