Having natural curls can be hard to maintain, especially when you are struggling with keeping your hair moisturized between washes. Showering can be miserable for you when your hair is too dry and tangled. You might plan only to wash your hair once every week, but the problem is your hair is suffering from lack of hydration. In this blog, we will discuss how you can keep it healthy and moisturized during the week.
Our day-to-day life affects how much of sebum, the lubrication in the hair and skin, retains in our hair. There are some reasons, such as the weather, shampoo, daily hair care, heat from styling, chemical treatments, and curl type that can dry out your hair. The list can go on, but it is important to figure out why your hair is drying out to prevent it from any further damage. Hair needs constant moisture and proper cleansing if you are going to spread out your wash more than seven days. Everyone’s hair needs something different. It’s essential to start by narrowing down what is causing your exact case of dryness so that you can reverse the dehydration.
In the past few years, layering is a popular technique that puts products and oils onto your hair in a specific order. The oils last longer than they would if you were to blend them and put them on all at once. Additionally, layering helps your curls stay moisturized. They’ll remain defined for longer too. You’ll have less frizz and more style for the rest of the day.
The LOC method stands for Liquid, Oil, and Cream, where you apply your moisturizing products after cleansing and conditioning your hair. LOC is a layering technique useful for a moisture refresh. First, you can apply water-based products if you want to infuse extra nutrition. You have to make sure the product contains water or aloe Vera as the first ingredient on the label.
Secondly, olive, avocado, and coconut oils protect your hair, lubricate it, and provide long-lasting nutrients. A highly effective healing and protective way to moisturize your strands is to use Shea butter and castor oil. Finally, the last LOC process is applying a nutrient-dense cream. It is important to choose a cream that is low in chemicals because the chemicals can damage your hair. If you have natural hair, you’ll probably want a heavy and thick cream. Common porosity types will benefit from light cream, like a thin leave-in conditioner.
A pre-poo helps reduce breakage and detangling your hair. On wash day, the main goals are hydrating your hair and cleanse the scalp. A pre-poo allows your natural oils to remain intact and wash your scalp. When you do a pre-poo, it is simple as saturating your hair with your regular conditioner. Some examples of pre-poos include Shea butter, aloe Vera, and coconut milk.
