After big chop softening

lydia ravenswoodlydia ravenswood Posts: 34Registered Users
I really damaged my hair last year so since September I'd been growing it out. 2 weeks ago I finally cut all the damaged part and I have several inches of natural hair. It's soft around my head but if it goes wavy it feels coarse. I wanna soften my hair in some way. I can't wash and condition a lot as I have a lot of health issues so I need some kinda leave in something that'll do it.

    Giovanni direct leave-in is a great leave- in. It leaves your hair feeling hydrated. Also alba botanicals leave in is excellent as well.

    The first thing I do is deep condition with the Giovanni smooth as silk conditioner. And I finish with either the giovanni leave/in or alba leave/in. My hair is left feeling moisturized. I reapply leave in everyday until my next wash.

    I used to use Biolage's leave-in conditioner. It's lightweight so won't weigh down the curls. A lot of people argue that Biolage isn't hydrating enough but it worked great on my hair.
