You can make your own daily spray leave in using a regular conditioner. A great rule of thumb to follow when mixing would be one part conditioner to two parts water, this will ensure the product is loose enough to be sprayed. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and enjoy.
Once you are done adding moisture the next step is to seal, sealing is just as important as adding the moisture because there is no point in adding moisture to the hair if you have nothing to keep all your hard work in place for at least a couple of days.
Sealing your new growth is pretty much the same as sealing your relaxed ends. You want to use a heavy or light oil or butter depending on your preference and the texture of your hair. If your hair strand is built like a strainer, thick and highly porous, then a heavy oil or butter would be ideal for you.
If your hair traps moisture well and you have relatively fine strands then you can get away with a light oil or butter with no fear of dryness by the next morning if you are a night time sealer.
It’s also important to section the hair while applying your moisturizers and sealants don’t just spray your hair willy nilly. Work in sections to ensure that you catch every strand and nothing is left dry and susceptible to breakage.
Jeni of Just Grow Already actually credits her moisturizing technique with the fact that she rarely loses any strands to breakage. You only have to look at her hair to know that she’s doing something right! Take a look at as she demonstrates in the below video how she moisturizes her new growth at nine weeks post relaxer.
Another example can be found from BabilonKay here. Once you got a handle on moisturizing your new growth as well as your relaxed ends you should see a difference in how your hair behaves and retaining length is a breeze.
