As we alllllllllll know water, is a must for natural hair, I have found the more water I use on my hair and in my products my hair seems to thrive...thrive ...thrive!. Below I will share a bit on what Chicoro says about ways to get water into our hair:
1. RINSE YOUR HAIR WITH VERY WARM WATER:
The easiest way to water into your hair is to saturate or rinse your hair with water. Warm water will penetrate your hair faster than colder water. But, do not use water that is to hot!
2. STEAM YOUR HAIR:
Another way to infuse your hair with water is to steam your hair. There are four methods or ways to steam your hair: A) Most Expensive- Buy a steamer. Steamers add a steady stream of warm, vaporized water to the hair. B) Expensive- Purchase a hair dryer. Dryers use hot air and no water or moisture. You can wet your hair and place a plastic cap over it and sit under the dryer. Or you can wet a towel under hot running water, or heat a towel in the microwave. Put in on your wet hair and sit under the dryer. Please be careful!
C) Less Expensive- Purchase a heating cap. Wet your hair and place the cap on top.
D) Not Expensive- Wet a towel place it in the microwave to warm it up, Place the towel on your Then place a plastic cap over the towel.
E) Cheap- Wet your hair and place plastic bag over your hair. Leave this on for 15 minutes or over night.
3. Use water based moisturizer- Use a water based moisturizer in your hair. you can use this during the week , and you can also use this while placing a plastic cap on top.
4. Use Hygroscopic ingredients in your hair- Perform treatments on your hair by adding honey to your conditioners , amino acids or glycerin to your other products.
5. Use protective styling- To help in holding onto moisture longer. This will keep the hair moist and protected.
