My Winter Secrets For Moisturized Hair

I have had a long hair care journey and when some of my friends transitioned they were full of questions for me. One of the questions I keep getting is: “How does your hair stay so soft?”

From all the pats I’ve received (granted without permission) I can tell that softness is appreciated. I don’t have to tell you why having soft and moisturized hair is good, but I still will. You know from watching videos, reading articles and getting advice from friends that moisturized hair is soft, supple, and strong.

Hair can be described as a sponge. If you have just unwrapped a sponge from its packaging, it is hard and dry. If your hair feels like that you have dry hair and you need to moisturize it right away. When you have a sponge with a lot of grease, you don’t want to just add soap and continue to wash your dishes. It’s dirty; throw it out. With your hair the concept is similar, you need to wash your hair before you do a moisturizing routine.

Reasons to Moisturize your Hair:

  1. Soft and moisturized hair is easier to de-tangle
  2. Leads to less breakage
  3. Hair is stronger and able to resist breakage
  4. Healthier looking
  5. Styles look better
  6. Resilient in harmful weather conditions

Now how do you get and keep your hair moisturized so it can be soft:

  1. Moisturize hair in sections
    1. My hair is really thick so I can work in sections so that I can easily work in the products
  2. Use water or water-based products to moisturize
    1. I make sure that I moisturize with mixture of apple cider vinegar and water
    2. This method gives my hair shine and helps clarify
  3.  Rake the water through my hair with a wide tooth comb
    1. This helps my de-tangling process
  4. Apply oil to the section of hair
    1. I rub coconut oil to the section
    2. I make sure I heat it up in my hands first by rubbing it in between my palms
    3. I smooth the coconut oil into the hair
    4. You can use any oil; there are so many oils: Argan, olive, coconut, Neem, Jojoba, avocado
  5. Use hair butter to seal in the moisture and provide
    1. I use Creme of Nature’s Curl Hydrating Buttercreme
    2. I use my hands to smooth in the butter
    3. I apply more to my ends because of the fragility of the ends
  6. Apply pomade for some more hold and sealing power
    1. I use Mango Butter Daily Hair Dress to the section
    2. Now that it is winter, we need to be very careful about our hair
    3. The moisture in my hair stays locked and my hair is soft
  7. During the week, maintain the moisture by spritzing leave-in conditioner
    1. Every two days I spritz my hair with Creme of Nature’s strength and shine leave in conditioner
    2. Every two days I do a quick touch up with butter, as well
    3. I do not use sections with daily moisturizing
