Best Moisturizer for Curly Hair
Say goodbye to dry, lifeless and dead curls. Enhance your curly hair tendrils with a power packed moisturizer to revive elasticity, bounce and shine! Using the best moisturizer on a consistent basis WILL give your less than luxurious hair, the edge it has been longing for.
Perhaps you may have a moisturizing regimen that you have been working on for some time now. Well, the time of perfection is here! It starts with a good evaluation every now and again, to make sure your current plan includes all that is needed to maintain consistent levels of moisture in your hair. Let’s get busy!
For starters, in order to maintain optimal moisture you must understand that there is no one-stop-shop fix, but rather a holistic approach that brings results. Look into your regular care plan from start to finish to see how you can improve. Here are some areas to check, within your hair care regimen.
Cleansing Curly Hair
Check to be sure your curl cleanser is chock full of moisturizing ingredients and is free from parabens, sulfates and other harsh cleansing detergents. These chemicals will strip your hair of the healthy elements it contains like precious, natural sebum made from your body. Sebum is the scalp’s secretion that lubricates the scalp and spreads along the hair strand to provide moisture and protection. Too much of a good thing could cause build up and weigh the hair down, so a good cleansing session is necessary on a regular basis. Too little of sebum will also wreak havoc on the homeostasis of your hair and can cause dryness, and breakage. Hair needs a healthy environment to thrive in. You can maintain a healthy moisture balance by keeping hair clean with formulated curly hair products like CURLS Curlicious Curls Cleansing Cream. This effective, yet mild formula will get rid of the excess debris and rectify overactive sebaceous secretions while maintaining the goodness your body has produced.
Conditioning for Curly Hair
After each cleanse, condition your hair with a hydrating conditioner like Coconut Sublime Conditioner. This is an important step for maintaining hydration. Check to be sure your conditioner has adequate slip, and essential moisturizing ingredients to fortify your strands for lasting hydration and strength. Look for ingredients like Certified Organic Carrot Seed Oil, Certified Organic Horse Chestnut Extract and Sage Leaf Extract for example. Natural elements are the perfect complement for natural hair. This conditioning rinse can also be used on its own, in between cleansing sessions, to add hydration and moisture to your hair until your next shampoo or cleanse occurs.
Deep Conditioning Your Curls
What is a deep treatment? A deep conditioning treatment is a formula designed to increase the hydration within the hair strand as well as along the hair shaft. Its effects are longer lasting than the regular rinse out conditioner mentioned above. Use an organic based product to deeply treat your hair in the best way possible as this is the key to longer lasting hydration. You should utilize a deep conditioner no less than once a month and no more than once a week based on the health of your hair. CURLS Curl Ecstasy Hair Tea Deep Conditioner is an excellent selection. It contains organic aloe leaf juice, sunflower seed oil, green tea and chamomile extract.
Trimming Your Ends
Every two months, a scheduled trim should take place. When your ends are clean and clipped you lessen the risk for breakage. You also help your cuticle remain closed and consistent where it matters the most. Hair that is not often trimmed will have a more porous cuticle, allowing for moisture to escape the hair shaft. When you regularly keep fresh ends you will see added hair growth, a thicker density and more manageable hair. You will also retain better moisture on a consistent basis when the ends are maintained.
The Best in Moisture
The ultimate, best moisturizer for curly hair is the Quenched Curls Moisturizer. This spray is perfect for a shot of hydration to your thirsty strands whenever it needs it, which is right after cleansing/conditioning or in the morning/night for a burst of curl refreshment. Very light and absorbing, it is the perfect prerequisite to your styling methods. Use this moisturizer to prep the curls for styling and to maintain a healthy moisture balance. The key to moisturizing is to steer clear from drying out the hair which can take time to alleviate. This moisturizer has white tea extract, jojoba seed oil and glycerin, a humectant. Glycerin will not only add moisture, but attract moisture to the hair strand. If you suffer from rapid moisture loss, chase your moisturizer with the Champagne and Caviar Curl Elixir to seal in the hydration.
Finally, your diet directly impacts the hydration levels of hair also. Eat rich, green, leafy, vegetables with lean protein in your diet. Fruit and grains are also important to a healthy lifestyle but drinking water is most important for the moisture you seek. There are tiny water molecules that float within the hair strand, so replenishing those areas is imperative.
So take on this holistic approach to moisturizing the hair to move you closer to having plump, supple, elastic strands. Assess how these tips can help you in your hair care regimen and be amazed at the leaps and bounds the condition of your hair will improve in no time!
