Hello All My Darling Diva’s!
Ok so as usual before we begin with today’s tip, if you need a little bit of catch up, below are all the tips that have bee posted soo far in the Healthy Hair Challenge! Once your done playing catch up, meet me under that for today’s tip.
Ok so today were going to discuss the last unit in your product Arsenal which is the Moisture Unit and in my opinion its the most important unit. Retaining moisture in your hair is really essential in growing it healthy and long because without moisture, your hair will be dry, prone to easy breakage, and just wont have a good look to it. After your hair goes through the wash and condition stage, your hair is going through so much, and it needs moisture to be added back into it since it when through so much during the washing and conditioning stages. . For years I’ve been using just Shea Butter as a Moisturizer and while that was all fine and dandy, I noticed that moisturized my hair, but it just sat on top of my hair. Now I was doing some research on some Natural Hair Blog’s because I’ve been having some issues with just using Shea butter and I learned about using water-based moisturizers and then following up with an oil based one to seal . I found out that Shea Butter was an Oil Based Moisturizer and it was missing a water based product to use before. So I was using a sealant and it had nothing to seal in Sooo my hair has been having something missing and it was a water based moisturizer!
Now your probably wondering, how to tell what is a water based moisturizer and how to tell what a oil-based moisturizer is. This video below I will be explaining more about that and also showing you how to make my homemade whipped Shea butter mixture which is my oil-based moisturizer.
Water Based Moisturizer Recommendations
Cantu Leave in conditioner cream ( My staple product!)
Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
I have a product review of this. I didnt really like it but it still keeps your hair feeling really soft! Click Here
for the review
Shea Mositure Curl and Style Milk
The only recommendation that I have for Oil-Based products is using Shea Butter because that’s all I’ve used. I plan to test our some more hair butters, so stay tuned for more oil-based moisturizer recommendations. So if you find a Shea butter to your liking, use my recipe or find a type of hair butter, pomade, or oil, that will work just fine.
Alright ladies! That’s all for today’s healthy hair tip. I hope you have learned something new because I sure did! Hope your hair is on it’s way to growing long and strong! Until next time, love you lots like tator tots!
