I need to step my moisture game up when it comes to my natural hair. When I do decide to moisturize my hair more often (after my hair screams out asks for it), I use a couple of products. Truthfully, moisture comes from within, as well as through proper conditioning. However, when I like to kick up the moisture on a daily basis there are a few products that I opt to use.
Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera Gel is an excellent product for moisture amongst other things. I often use aloe vera gel as my prized moisture/styling product and it never fails to give me beautiful results. In order to properly seal moisture in, I have to remember to put a heavier product over the aloe vera gel which is either a form of oil or shea butter.
Shea Butter/Aloe/EVCO Vera Combo
Shea/Aloe/EVCO is a remarkable concoction that works to moisturize and seal all-in-one. I use this faithfully in order to preserve the moisture in my coils. I mix up the three into a smooth whip (it only takes minutes to do right in my kitchen). I not only use it for styling right after washing my hair, but it produces soft, moisturized coils.
Some love glycerin, others hate it. I don’t use it much because of the successes that I have with the above listed products, however, I have used a glycerin & distilled water mixture to moisturize my hair in the past. Glycerin is a humectant, which attracts moisture, and it often keeps the hair in a moisturized state. Try it (especially in warm/humid climates) if you’d like and evaluate the results.Show
