The Best Leave-in Conditioners for Your Natural Hair

Moisture is our curl’s life force. Our hair thrives off of the proper balance between moisture and proteins, and despite knowing we have to keep this delicate balance, it is hard to maintain. Nature’s source of moisture is water but many are still unaware of the importance of water in a curly girl’s regimen. Now, some are under the impression that oils moisturize hair but they do not; they seal moisture in. Hair moisturizers are big business but many on the market have tons of emollients and oils but lack the water. The best moisturizers are water-based so if you are suffering from dry hair, make sure water is a main component of your moisturizing regimen. 

I love water and use it as my main moisturizer with only a hint of lavender oil, but many curly girls prefer those moisturizers with a little more oomph to bring their hair back to life. Moisturizers are excellent for revitalizing second, third and even fourth day hair so jumping back into the shower is not the only way to revive those strands and not everyone chooses to go the DIY route for a moisturizer. Spray leave-in conditioners are great for looser textures and fine strands that become easily weighed down. Lucky for us the hair care market has flooded us with options for already-made moisturizers but it can be challenging to find the right ones so we are sharing some of the best liquid moisturizers (water-based) that curly girls love.
