a blog about my natural hair, natural hair journey
I seal with an oil or shea butter, except when I use the Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie, it has so many butters/oils in it that I don't feel the need to seal.
As a newbie I moisturize and seal but if there is a better way somebody let me know. Anywho, I spritz my hair with a homemade spray(water, conditioner, oils....etc) and seal with olive oil.
@LaNeshe: I love products that come complete. I'll keep that product in mind when people ask for products that don't need any sealants. @Tonia: What you are doing is fine if it is what works for you. As long as your hair is moisturized (no matter what steps you have to take to get there) that is all that matters at the end of the day.
And thanks for responding ladies :D
I use Ashea She Butter mix or castor oil to seal but only when doing twists or braids, etc. Other than that, nope no sealing.
It depends on the product, but I usually seal with jojoba oil or shea butter unless I'm feeling super lazy.
I don't seal. My leave-in conditioner is enough for me.
I used to moisturise and seal faithfully every day in the early days of my natural hair journey. My hair was so dry then.Now, I find that I after washing my hair once a week, I apply a leave in conditioner, which I allow to get absorbed into my hair a few minutes before moisturising and sealing. I do not need to moisturise and seal till my next wash. However, I would spritz my hair with my moisturising mix which contains a very light oil which gets easily absorbed into the hair. And every other night during winter, I might lightly seal my ends with my homemade Serum-Sealant.
I have been sealing my hair with a little bit of coconut oil after using a leave in. I have only started doing that with this leave-in I am using right now, if I don't it feels like I have only put water on my hair sometimes
