I wanted to get some tips/advice on keeping my hair moisturized.
I've been natural for 1.5yrs now and for the first year I mostly wore my hair braided and wore a weave. But now I want to grow my edges out so am doing just protective styles.
I'm noticing that my hair is hard to keep moisturized and seems always dry and brittle. My normal routine is a cowash once every two weeks or a deep conditioner. Then my hair dries so fast and doesn't hold the water so I squirt it with a water bottle add virgin olive oil then double stand braid it for two weeks and periodically use olive oil over the braids or dax hair oil and Castor oil on the edges. But my hair is still dry and brittle by the nextday.

^^^^^, I love glycerin and water too, it is bomb. I put mines on about 5 minutes before I get in the shower, and let the steam moisturize my hair.

  Hi Buddy,

  Keeping natural hair moisturized is a lot less daunting once you understand your hair's relationship to water and its drying cycle.

Once your hair is introduced to water, the goal is to lock in moisture and hold on to it for as long as possible while it dries. Then, the goal is to re-hydrate the hair before it has the opportunity to dry out completely.
    Most people run into problems because they:
  • Dry it out initially through the use of harsh shampoos or consistent exposure to direct heat
  • Use products that do not condition or nourish the hair effectively
  • Use products or techniques that fail to lock in moisture as it dries.

The end result is consistently parched hair that looks and feels dry to the touch.


Thanks.
