Moisturizing your hair during regular days is a big deal. It's an even bigger deal moisturizing your hair during the harmattan. There's a big misconception that once you protect your hair in braids, you have to go to bed and ignore your hair. This is time for a rude awakening. Ready?
Moisturize every day
Whether you are in braids or not, moisturizing your hair during the harmattan is a must. Doing so daily helps in improving the health of your hair. It makes it less susceptible to breakage and dryness. Apply your Aloe Vera Hair Mist or Hair and Scalp Spray, follow it up with your Leave In Lotion and Shea Butter or Hair Oil to seal in the moisture.
Moisturize on the go
Whenever you feel your hair is dry, moisturize. With your Aloe Vera Hair Mist or Hair and Scalp Spray in your purse, it's even easier. All you need to do is spray a little bit on your hair and work through hair from ends to your scalp. Style as desired.
Deep condition regularly
If you used to Deep Condition once every 4 weeks, it's time to increase the frequency. Deep conditioning once a week or at lease once every 2 weeks will do you good. Since the hair is prone to losing moisture often, restoring the moisture lost through deep conditioning is a great idea.
Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables
Particularly those ones rich in water such as watermelon, cucumber, etc. It helps to moisturize from the inside out. Whilst moisturizing your hair, you supplement it with eating fruits and vegetables to keep your hair moisturized but to also improve your health. It's a win-win.
Drink more water
Drink a lot of water during the harmattan. It's good for your hair and your general health too. It doesn't come easy especially if you're not used to it but that's no excuse. Get yourself a water bottle and set daily targets. You'll be glad you did.
