When I talk to other women with natural hair online or attend natural hair events, the most asked question is how to keep their hair moisturized. Because naturally textured hair tends to be dry, moisture is crucial for healthy hair. There are tons of products that claim to add moisture to our hair, and new techniques are being shared to optimize moisture. Some naturals are keeping water bottles in their purses, ready to spritz down their hair at a moment’s notice. This might sound like a good idea, but can you over-moisturize your hair?

Surprisingly enough, the answer is yes. You can actually over-moisture your hair and cause more harm than good. Over-moisturizing has a name, and it’s hygral fatigue. Hygral fatigue is when our hair swells when wet, then shrinks as it dries, and that back and forth as you try to keep it constantly moisturized causes breakage. Besides constantly spritzing your hair with water, deep conditioning your hair well beyond the time recommended by the manufacturer or even overnight on a regular basis can cause over-moisturization as well. Totally avoiding protein can also result in hygral fatigue.
