How To Find The Right Moisturiser For Dry Natural Hair

Choosing the right moisturiser can be hard, especially for our different hair types as afro textured hair can be naturally dry. So with many different brands and moisturisers out there, it's no wonder we struggle to find which ones work best for our tresses. 

DO YOU KNOW YOUR HAIRS POROSITY

Porosity is how the cuticles lay along the hair shaft.  If your hair is low porosity then the cuticles don't open up and moisture can’t get in. 
If your cuticles are too open, then your hair can tangle and frizz easily. This results in having high porosity hair.  

DEEP CONDITIONING

Moisturising our hair can come in many different ways. Moisturising after wash day and during the week is the most common way to moisturise our hair, but there are other ways to moisturise too. For example deep conditioning. Using in direct heat opens up the hair cuticle and allows the conditioner to enter into the hair shaft and penetrate more. Allowing the hair to retain moisture. 

LEAVE-IN CONDITIONERS

Leave-in conditioners help to retain moisture straight after the wash day process. Not only after wash day, but leave-in conditioners can be great daily moisturisers too. The same can be said for lightweight daily conditioners.

DAILY MOISTURISERS

These are good enough to use on a daily basis. Just remember that some moisturisers do contain protein. Therefore if you are protein sensitive, it can depend on how frequent you use a particular moisturiser.

Love the product but not the size

This item is almost perfect. It’s moisturizing and smells wonderful! I rarely find natural hair products that smell like flowers so this was a bonus! It’s slightly oily which is great for my low porosity hair. However, the size is just not working for me. I got the 4.2 oz but even then it was just kind of small, even though a little goes a long way with this product. Wish there was a value size.

Love, love it!

I purchased this leave-in after watching HonestLiz's review of this product. I love how thick the product is and how nourished my hair feels after. The scent is not too subtle, but I love it. I have had numerous compliments on how my hair looks and smells. To top it all, the product has amazing ingredients. Can’t wait to try more!

No more dry hair

It love at 1st wash. The entire collection smells divine, I have not used the Clay wash as yet but am looking forward to it. The discovery kit has helped
it my decision to buy the regular size bottles. My only problem is getting the leave in conditioner out of the bottle, otherwise congratulations to Flora and Curl for a superb collection.
