5 Steps To Getting Maximum Moisture From Root To Tip

Having soft, healthy moisturized hair with poppin’ curls and coils is pretty much a universal goal for most naturals. However, it can be difficult to achieve when you can’t get an even distribution of moisture throughout your entire head of hair.

Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to make sure you reap the complete benefits of both your products and your regimen. Below are 5 tips to getting maximum moisture from root to tip!



Divide and Conquer

When it comes to evenly distributing moisturizer, sectioning off your hair is one of the most important steps! Parting your hair into 2 to 4 sections, detangling, moisturizing, and then sealing makes the process more organized and effective.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to just scoop a bunch of product in my hand and apply it to my whole head at once; it either ended in completely over-saturated hair or my roots being dry while my ends were being neglected.

I know that moisturizing your hair can already be a tedious task on it’s own, but I promise taking the extra time to part your hair and pay attention to one section at a time will be beneficial in the long run!

Be sure to use ponytail holders, clips, and/or bobby pins to keep the already moisturized and detangled section of hair separated from the dry portions.

Seal Immediately After

For whatever reason, a lot of women wait until their whole head is moisturized before they apply whatever butters or oils they’re using as a sealant.

In my opinion, this is counterproductive because it gives too much time for the water and moisturizer applied to your hair to dry. Your goal is to keep your hair as hydrated and moisturized as possible; exposure to air will ultimately dry you out faster.

Instead of waiting to the very end, seal the section of your hair you just moisturized immediately after doing so. If you don’t want to apply your heavy oils right away, try a lighter oil first like grapeseed or tea tree oil just to secure the moisture. Then, you can add all of your additional creams, butters, and oils.

About Patrice Lechelle


Hi! My name is Patrice Lechelle, I'm a college student born and raised in Northern California, and I just recently started embracing my love for talking about all things fashion and beauty, especially hair. Throughout the years, I've tried my best to have a hand in both performance and visual arts, but creative and journalistic writing have always held the key to my heart. My hair became the unlikely teller of my story once I realized that every up and down in my life could be seen through my locs. From hard times leading to short cuts to purple hair ushering in my rebellious streak, my hair said it ALL. My goal is to use my knowledge and experiences to give my fellow Black women the best help, tips, and encouragement I can offer.
