Dry, and Brittle “It’s Cracking” ?

 

 

 

A lot of us have times where we think that hair is healthy and beautiful, until that one day you decide to do something major to your hair and you damage it. Now there are different ways to combat dry hair .What’s the best and affordable product you can use? TIGI Moisture Manic! This product makes your hair easy to manage. You can use it as a leave-in , or as a rinse out conditioner, and as my fav a daily moisturizing spritz. The ingredients are as follows.

Water (Aqua), Cetyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Acetamide MEA, Cetrimonium Bromide, Stearyl Alcohol, Parfum(Fragrance), DMDM Hydantoin, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Pentaerythrityl Tetracaprylate/Tetracaprate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Silk Amino Acids, D&C Orange 4

Ingredient Attributes: silicone free, protein free

Now the great to this is its main ingredient is H2O!!  Which means its a water based conditioner that will be sure to add, and keep the moisture to your hair. There’s also a shampoo in the Moisture Maniac line that I will be trying soon. I know for sure now that this will be added to my holy grail of products. My curls were very shiny, and soft. The dryness that I had from using another product was instantly fixed as soon as I rinsed it out. I’m excited in trying it as a deep conditioner , using honey and EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil).I will keep you all posted on this product. Definitely give it a try!

Moisture. Moisture and more Moisture. By NaturallyChar

Before I big chopped all I read about were women who experienced that dry spell after their BC. Many responded that hair needs a moisture overload.  Greenhouse effect, baggy, co-wash, porosity. Am I the only one that had the *blank stare.* Of course I didn’t want my hair to be like a bird’s nest, but wasn’t quite sure where to begin. When did being natural become so complicated? I had to look at my hair as a science project.  Natural hair thrives off of water. Where we ran from it when we were relaxed, we can now walk in the rain (unless you’re wearing a killer outfit). The BIG question was how was I to get this moisture?

Co-Washing

Many women frown upon this. The idea of not using shampoo is just ghastly. In my opinion this actually benefited my hair in the beginning. Co-washing is just washing your hair with conditioner only. Who says conditioner can’tcleansing? Use it as you would shampoo. It’s best to start off with the inexpensive ones (VO5, Suave, Herbal Essence). Lather it in your hair. I found it easier to do this while in the shower. Use this time to detangle as well. You can co-wash every day or a few times a week. It’s up to you. My moisture level increased with this method.

Steamers

The best invention since sliced bread for natural hair. With a good deep conditioner and some steam, your hair will be singing hallelujah to the Heavens. Best investment I ever made and it cost less than a $100.  Steam allows the hair follicle’s to lift up to allow moisture into the hair shaft. A must if you have low porous hair. I would steam my hair about twice a week in the beginning and now just one a week. My hair would feel like butta afterwards. Just writing about it makes me want to plug it up right now. I have the LCL steamer that can be purchased at http://lclbeauty.com/products.php?cat=9. Love it. 20 minutes is all it takes.

                              In the long run getting that moisture wasn’t as hard as some made it to be.
