Your hair care routine is something that should be as unique as you are. No one head of hair is the same, so it will take some trial and error to find the products and routine that your hair loves. Regardless of the type of hair you have, regular conditioning and moisturizing can do wonders for your locs.
Read on to learn more about the importance of conditioning and moisturizing your hair, and how you can add it to your regular hair care routine for optimal results.
Keeping It Clean
The reason behind any hair care routine is to keep the hair healthy, and this means keeping the scalp clean. Whether you use styling products such as gels, sprays, or pomades, or even if you don’t use anything, your hair can still get a build-up of chemicals and oils that need to be washed away to keep the scalp healthy. When it comes to keeping kinky or curly hair clean, giving it a good massaging rinse once a week is highly suggested.
Try to get down to your scalp with your fingers, gently massaging them into your hair to loosen any oils or products in it to bring your hair back to its natural state. Those that suffer from skin conditions that affect the scalp, such as dandruff, should take to rinsing their hair a couple of times a week to help combat the dryness.
Treat Your Strands
You want to treat yourself well, so why not do the same with your hair? Using conditioner is that extra bit of treatment that your hair deserves. Conditioner helps with the more fragile parts of your hair, particularly the ends. Whenever you rinse your hair, use conditioner as well to help give that strength to your hair and to replenish any natural oils that may have been lost during the shampooing process.
The Importance of Moisturizing
Keeping your hair clean is an obvious step to most if not all, but many skip the step of moisturizing. Moisturizing your luscious hair can be one of the best things you can do for it. Kinky and curly hair in particular does well with more hydration, and as such, adding simple moisturizing steps to your daily hair care routine along with using conditioner when you wash it can be an easy way to keep your hair looking its absolute best. Just as you moisturize your skin after showering, you want to ensure you do the same for your hair.
Keeping your hair clean and moisturized is the easiest way to keep it healthy and happy. Moisturizing your hair can help prevent it from breaking. You can moisturize with liquids, oils, creams, or anything water-based. Try different options like a cream you can leave in or a product that allows for easy styling until you find what works best for you!
You might find you only need one moisturizing product, or perhaps you prefer using two in tandem. After treating your hair to a good shampoo and conditioning, keep it moisturized by using a water-based moisturizing product to help keep your hair as healthy and beautiful as possible.
