Hair in need of Moisture! HELP ME PLEASE

Hey Ladies,

I am in need of some help finding products for my 3B hair! I recently moved to Arizona and our summers are brutal. The heat is sucking every little bit of moisture I have right out of my hair. It feels so dried out all the time. My length is right above my bra strap and I like to wear it down. I before moving here I was just putting leave in conditioner and a little gel. I don't like the crunchy hair and like to be able to get a few days out of it before washing it again. Any help would be great. Have a wonderful night.

    I live in The south. And i know first hand that the humidity is not friendly for girls with 3b hair. I say, wet your hair, and put cantu Shea butter cream or organix Moroccan argan oil shampoo all over your hair, it will help moisturize.

    I live in Southern Colorado, so I get what you're saying! I have just discovered Walgreens brand Bioinfusion Hydration Conditioner! I LOVE it. My hair is so much softer. You also may want to seal it before the gel, using MO or grapeseed oil Check out: Winter Hair Care: Moisturizing Oils vs Sealing Oils


    It helps alot! I am newer to everything also, so I am curious what everyone else says too! I recently discovered avocado oil. It can be expensive, but I use so VERY LITTLE of it just maybe a TBSP or two. Huge difference! But I also seem to be more protein sensitive, so that can mess things up. SM brand can be bought at Walgreens and Walmart also.

    Good luck!
    3A/3B, coarse, low porosity, high density, iii I believe (?), low to normal elasticity.

    CoWash/LI: VO5 Ocean Breeze/Shea Moisture
    Style:IOkra Gel/KCCC
    Plop 10 min / air dry

    Please ignore the bioinfusion from previous post. It contains cones . I didnt see them previously and am brokenhearted now.

    It is very difficult to take care about hair. As Kira Savannah mentioned about Shea Moisturizer, you can use it. This product makes your hair shiny and silky. I am using this for my long hair for last two years. This really helps in such conditions.

    I have 3b hair and I live in Texas so I know how the heat can take a toll on our hair. What really helps me when my hair becomes REALLY dry I do a D.I.Y. mask that only calls for TWO ingredients coconut oil (I use Spectrum organic coconut oil which is easy to find, I actually got mine from Wal-Mart) and an egg. The coconut oil is solid at room temp so when you begin to do the mask you need to melt it down to an oil. When you are melting it down to an oil, you don't want your oil TOO hot but warm enough so when you mix in your egg to apply to your hair, it's still warm. Once you put the mask all over your hair, apply a plastic cap over it and let the mask set for about an hour. Then when you get ready to wash the mask out, rinse with a cowash or use shampoo and a GOOD conditioner. When you are done washing, put a light layer of the coconut oil all over your hair to help retain the moisture and let dry. It does wonders for my hair! <3 Hope that helps! :)

    I recently started using and loving this. The only cone in this is amodimethicone which is easily removed and doesn't build up much at all. I think if you like how it works you'll be a ok with using a mild surfactant once in a while!

    2c/3a - fine - medium porosity & density
