As a tightly coiled natural, you’re probably all too familiar with the race to do your hair before it dries. Once that conditioner has been rinsed out, you nearly tumble and fall out of your shower and run to your sink to begin the process all while ignoring the fact that over 20,000 slip and fall fatalities occur in North America every year.
While keeping a spray bottle on hand to rewet your hair is convenient, the aim of the game is to be in and out as quickly as possible and avoid being locked in a bathroom, arms in the air, beginning to tug and pull at your hair just to get it over and done with.
If this story sounds familiar, then read on for a short and sweet list of tips on how to moisturize you hair every day.
How to Moisturize Hair
- During the final step of cleansing your hair, ensure that you detangle it thoroughly. By doing this step in the shower, it will lessen the time you spend out of the shower battling knots as your hair dries.
- Separate your hair into the sections that you intend to style. Let’s say that you want to do a twist or braid out and like to separate your hair into 10 sections. Do it in the shower. Them once you reach the sink, all you need to do is unravel each section one at a time and apply your product without wasting time separating.
- Before even stepping into the shower, make sure that you have your products on hand to use as soon as you get out. Nothing is worse than being dripping wet and looking around in cupboards for the leave-in conditioner at the back you wanted to try or the styler you left back in your bedroom.
- Use liquid products when styling. This does double duty to ensure your hair stays moist and helps to keep your hair tangle-free as you style.
Now that you know the secrets of how to moisturize hair, go forth and style like the pros in a fraction of the time.
