The battle to keep my hair moisturized!

In a recent post, I talked about I kept my face moisturised this past winter. Now, I’ll talk about my hair.
At the peak of winter, the weather was extremely dry and I felt that simply moisturizing and sealing my hair wasn’t going to cut it. I kept it hidden in hats, bonnets and wigs most of the time.
Now that spring is on the horizon, my hair is out again. Besides, I’m tired of wearing hats.

My skin made me realise that sometimes, just moisturising once a day might not be adequate. However, I don’t like the way my hair looks frizzy when I moisturize everyday. To reduce the number of times I moisturise my hair, I plan to do the L-O-C (Liquid-Oil-Cream) method of moisturization on my wash days to maintain my hair’s moisture levels in-between.To keep my hair supple, I’m also considering midweek co-washing. If I do midweek co-washing, I might not need to moisturize daily.

Anyways, I’ve decided to go on a hunt for the best hair moisturizer I can find. I want a moisturiser that leaves my hair feeling soft: I don’t like my hair feeling hard or dry. I also want a moisturizer that doesn’t cause buildup or leave my hair feeling dirty or sticky. I don’t like it looking frizzy either. That’s my issue with S-Curl. It was my staple hair moisturizer when I started my hair journey. It keeps my hair soft but after a while, my hair looks frizzy and feels like it has buildup. Many people including Sunshyne of Hairlicious Inc blog swear by S-Curl but I’ve left it behind a long time ago.
I’ll tell you more about the different moisturizers I’ve been trying in a future post.

    1. Hi Taiwo. This depends on your specific issue. If you never have any new growth from your scalp, it might be health-related and you should see a doctor.
      If you have new growth from your scalp but your hair never seems to go past the same length, maybe it’s breaking more than it grows. What you need to do is curb the breakage. To do this, you need to adopt healthy hair practices like deep conditioning your hair at least once a week, avoiding flat irons and hand dryers as much as possible. You may also want to try some growth aids like dietary supplements or hair growth oils.
