Please share this post so that everyone can benefit from this information.


1. Shea Butter

Shea Butter has so many benefits, but today let's talk about why it's great for retaining water for our coils and kinks.


It is great because it physically holds moisture in well. It acts a humectant, which improves growth and the softens for our hair.


2. Glycerine

Glycerin is a known ingredient that binds water together which means it’s instrumental in locking in moisture in addition with the other ingredients in your products.


This minimises breakage and shedding of hair.


3. Coconut Oil

Using coconut oil or hair products with coconut oil as a key ingredient, helps maintain moisture and prevent protein loss. According to Brown on the Marie Claire website, "The vitamins and fatty acids in coconut oil help nourish your scalp and penetrates the cuticle of the hair." This works for most and not all hair types, but when it works, it does wonders!


4. Jojoba Oil

Don't sleep on this oil, what is does is that, because it is very similar to your natural hair sebum (even its molecular structure is similar), it locks in water better. Making it a great sealant for your locs.


5. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny.


It's more of a softening ingredient because of the moisture it adds to your hair.


6. Water

This is very powerful, natural ingredient. Which should be followed by a cream or oil to keep in the moisture.


A good moisturiser will hydrate & nourish the hair deeply within the hair shaft. Water-based products are necessary. Remember this when shopping hair care.
