sealing in moisture

UrbanChickUrbanChick Posts: 4Registered Users
If I understand correctly, I need to moisturize then seal it in.

Which products are best for moisturizing then sealing? (especially since the weather is changing)

Right now I wash and condition daily w/[buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-No-Poo-p-53.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-nopoo]Deva No Poo[/buylink] and One (as a leave in)

BTW...I'm 3c/4a medium texture, normal porosity (high on the crown), high density, high elasticity (shrinkage) and too much protein will cause a problem

Thanks

    I think water is the best moisturizer for the hair.. then you can either leave in conditioner, use a homemade one with ingredients you like, or buy a commercial conditioner that is water based.

    Some oils are good for sealing.. like Castor Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Some people seal with shea butter.

    A few good items for moisture:
    *water & aloe vera juice mixed in a spray bottle
    (add glycerin if your not in a dry or super humid area)
    * to seal castro oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil, safflower oil ( from heaviest to lightest IMHO)

    A few prouducts I have tried are:
    Afroveda- Cocolatte (great moisture)
    Qhemets- Burdock root Butter Cream and the Alma Olive Heavy cream. Both work great on wet hair for me

    The burdock root butter cream is lighter and works really well when sealed with the honey hydrating balm.

    Hope this helps
