I have been slacking a little on posting. Between work and studying for my upcoming LSAT exam, after classes I talk to the boo and crash, but I will try to post more frequently. That being said, on to the post!
The most frustrating thing I’ve come to experience while on my hair journey is getting the women in my family to learn, understand, and adhere to healthy hair care practices. I am aware you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink, but sometimes I just wish I could get the simple stuff to stick. A source of constant frustration for me is getting my family to just moisturize and seal with an oil on a consistent basis. I’ve won the battler with my mother and her hair is lush and soft.
Personally for me, moisturizing and sealing has improved my hair tremendously. The key is sealing my moisturizer with oil. The oil acts as a barrier keeping the moisture in. My favorite oils to seal with are jojoba oil and coconut oil. I have fine hair and both oils are light enough for me for use nightly without suffering heavy, greasy stands.
Lately I have been sealing with Hairveda’s Vatika Frosting (coconut oil, henna, lemon, and amla). My hair has been consistently moisturized, I love it. Right now my go to moisturizers are Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship and Qhemet’s Burdock Root Butter Cream.
If you aren’t moisturizing and sealing on a consistent basis, hop to it, lol!
