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.
- 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.
