Moisturizing and sealing in the moisture in your

product (such as water, leave in conditioners like Giovanni Direct leave
in) in order to seal that moisture in and keep hair soft.
Moisturizers: Water, leave in conditioner, and some people use regular ol' conditioner as a leave in.
Sealers: Extra virgin olive oil,
grapeseed oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, castor oil...You can buy
them all from the grocery store and a decent price.
