Moisture is needed for anything to grow, the soil needs moisture in order for plants to grow and your hair needs moisture to also grow. There are so many effective ways to retain hair moisture but today I want to discuss five easy ones to get you started. These are simple changes that you can incorporate into your daily life without the hassle.
SILK SCARF OR PILLOWCASE
This is probably the simplest way to retain hair moisture. Instead of your average cotton pillowcase or head scarf, silk does not drain the moisture in your hair and it protects it from breakage or damage.
Just like plants, your hair needs water to grow and by spraying your hair with water often, it will remain moisturised and promote growth. Even using products that are water based is good for you hair and they will not dry your hair out.
Ever since I’ve stopped using hair dye and relaxer, I realised that my hair feels and looks healthier and smooth. It would get brittle and break off after some time after using harsh chemicals, but now even if I ‘neglect’ it for a couple of days, it still keeps its shape and moisture. Check for hair products that have sulphate and paraben because those chemicals drain all the moisture in your hair.
Deep conditioning is a game changer for your hair. No other washing process helps keep your hair moisturised like deep conditioning. Deep conditioner helps repair your hair and acts as a protective layer to your hair before adding any other products (well at least that is how I see it). If you’ve never tried deep conditioner, don’t waste another second, TRY IT.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, raw oils are good for your hair and are equally as good to retain hair moisture. I think you need at least one oil that you use on your hair, and the good thing about oils is that they also promote rapid hair growth. Find the oil that best suits your hair type.
Moisture is the key to hair growth and protects it from breakage. Keep your hair moisturised and before you know it, you will be hair goals!
