Benefits of Shampooing & Co-Washing Natural Hair Regularly

Since starting my Grow Out Challenge, I have increase the times I wet or hydrate my hair with water. Here are some facts about water and washing natural hair.

[ad#ad3]
  • Your body is primarily made of water water this includes your hair.
  • Water is the best moisturizer for hair and skin.
  • Your hair products should be water based to really moisturize.

Currently, I shampoo, rinse, steam and mist my hair and scalp regularly.  This is the beginning step of moisturizing your hair in layers.  We’ll talk about that in building a moisturizing regimen. In doing this I use coconut oil or shea butter to seal the moisture into my hair and scalp.  Applying from root to ends.

  • Shampoo once a week with a sulfate-free shampoo
  • Rinse hair every two to three days & seal in the moisture with shea butter or coconut oil.  In the winter time, dry hair under a hooded dryer for about 20 mins. Also cover hair with satin scarf in extremely cold climates.
  • Mist hair and scalp with water and vegetable glycerin mixture in spray bottle.  You can purchase vegetable glycerin here.

    I braid my daughters hair in cornrows once a week. I have noticed her scalp gets dry and her hair looks dry. How can I moisturize her hair with cornrows in?

    • In a spray bottle mix liquid leave in conditioner, oil of your choice, 100% natural aloe Vera gel with bottled water.
