Welcome back to my blog and to the second post in the ‘how not to’ series.
Knowing how to moisturize your hair properly is very essential in your hair care routine. I’ll be talking on the things you shouldn’t do when moisturizing your hair.
1.) Using oils or butters: oils and butters are not meant for moisturizing your hair but to seal in the moisture in your hair, so if you’re using just oils to moisturize your hair, you’re simply sealing the dryness in your hair. You should use a water based product or plain old water to moisturize your hair.
2.) Not sealing after moisturizing: after you have used a water based product to moisturize your hair, you have to seal on the moisture so it doesn’t get dry quickly. This is where oils and butters come to play. They help to keep your hair moisturized for a longer period of time.
3.) Not using the right products for your hair type: you need to use products that work with your hair type and hair porosity. For low porosity hair, you should be using lighter products cause thick products may just sit on your hair while for high porosity hair, you need thicker products because it looses it’s moisture quickly. This may not be the case with everyone’s hair, so you’ll have to figure out what works for your hair and stick to it.
4.) Not working in sections: with natural hair, it’s best that you work in sections with everything you’re doing. This way, all parts of your hair gets the product adequately and you get the job done properly.
These are few points to keep in mind whenever you’re moisturizing your hair.
