Adding Moisture: Natural Hair


Natural hair tends to dry easily and it is necessary for us to work on a consistent basis to keep our hair moisturized.

If your hair is not moisturized, you have increased risk of shedding and breakage. I have picked my top favorites that you can use with your at home care to help you to combat dryness and shedding. Have you tried any of these products? If so what were your experiences?

If you are participating in the #90dayhairgrowthchallenge, I recommend that you are on a consistent schedule for moisturizing your hair.

Develop a routine that works for you and your schedule.

Try to follow it as your hair will become trained.

Some products your should consider as well  are the following:

The Q-Redew –Handheld steamer offers great benefits (currently the official site has a contest to win one of these)

 Steam Rollers– easy to utilize by quickly curling while adding and sealing in moisture.

 Plastic CapsThe baggy method

Thermal conditioning capone of my favorites that allow you remain mobile while conditioning your hair. I used this on my children when they were younger instead of the bigger hair dryer.

Hopefully you will give some of these items a try as they will help you at home when caring for your own hair. Remember our goals are #healthyhair. Be patient and learn what works best for your hair. These are only tips and suggestions. All of our hair is different, but we can learn and grow together.

Protective style is any hair configuration that keeps the ends of your hair tucked away.”  These hairstyles requires little daily upkeep and assist with keeping your ends moisturized.This is also known to promote hair growth due to the  reduction of manipulation (pulling and tugging on the ends causing shedding)

Benefits of Protective Styling

  1.  Creativity & Stylish Looks
  2. Length retention
  3. Protection of the Ends
  4. Maintaining moisture (struggling with Mositure click here to get the oils that you need)
  5. Ability to try new looks

One very Easy Protective Style for me are Crochet Braids… see a clip from a one month update. (Installed by Me)

When selecting a protective style:  looks for styles that are easy for you as you may not like what looked good on another naturalista.  You may have to change it up quickly. For the 90 day challenge, it is recommended that you change up your protective style every two weeks so that you will be able to wash and deep conditioning and massaging  your scalp. Most of all be creative and find styles that fit your personality. Natural hair is so versatile.

Be Inspired….Embrace your Natural Beauty……..

My other go to quick style is the Faux Bun …..the easiest style ever….
