Sealing Natural Hair
1. Start with wet hair.
Water is the only true form of moisture, if water is not present, neither is moisture.
2. Apply a leave-in, moisturizer or creme. Avoid products that claim to moisturize, but have petroleum or mineral oil in the first five ingredients.
3. Apply a top coat of an oil or butter. Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Coconut Oil, and Raw Shea or Mango butter are all great choices and can be found in most health food stores such as Whole Foods or Trader Joes.
Applying oil or a thick hair butter, keeps the moisturizing products within the hair strand. This is the most important step. Oil seals in the moisture.
