Moisturizing 101

Moisturizing 101

Breakage? Dryness? No growth? Unmanageable hair?

All issues that can be remedied by properly and consistently moisturizing your hair. If you're struggling to keep your hair moisturized try our 5 tips mentioned below.

1. Water is moisture.

You can’t hydrate your hair without water. In fact, you may already use a range of products and conditioners to moisturize your hair, but a true moisturizer will have water listed as one of the first two ingredients. If your product contains much other than water, it simply isn’t moisturizing your hair.

For products rich in moisture, we recommend KurlyQ Magical Hair Mist enriched with botanical herbs to help strengthen and nourish.

2. Seal in moisture 

An anti-humectant is any product, like oil, that repels water. If you moisturize your hair in the morning, throughout the day that moisture will evaporate and get absorbed into the environment. But if that moisture is coated with an anti-humectant, the moisture won't want to pass through the oil. It will remain sealed into your hair!

This is why oils and other anti-humectants are so important for curly hair. They seal moisture into your hair strands and slow down the process of your hair drying out. 

Need to seal your ends? We recommend KurlyQ BOMB Hair Butter formulated to with moisturize packed ingredients to seal in need moisture 

3. Trim your ends!

Trim your hair regularly to get rid of brittle ends, and single strand knots. Split ends dry out quickly and can be the most dry part of your hair. Keep up with trims help your hair grow and retain moisture in the long run.

4. Cover your hair with silk or satin.

Do you wake up with your hair feeling dry and frizzy? At night, cover your hair with a silk or satin bonnet or scarf to retain moisture while you sleep.  Prevents moisture loss overnight, along with normal snags and split ends from friction.

We recommend KurlyQ Signature Satin Hair Scarf, made with fiber weave to protect hair from frizz.

5. Deep condition regularly.

 A consistent deep conditioning routine. Natural deep conditioners sit in your hair long enough to penetrate the strands, packing your hair with the moisture and nutrients it needs to thrive. Rinse after 20-40 minutes, style with your normal products, enjoy the results. Within a few cycles, you will notice your hair feeling softer and more moisturized.

 At KurlyQ. We've been known for our bestselling product Paw-Paw & Hon Hair Masque that helps to add the moisturize to dry brittle hair.
