During the colder months, Hydration is key. While you are doing your natural hair regimen, you have to find key ways to boost the moisture level in your hair strands. The best and easiest way for your hair to do is on WASH DAYS. So your tips, techniques, and products will allow you to get there.
Here are 3 ways to maximize hydration on wash days:
1. Cleanse Properly
There is no way to properly hydrate your hair if it isn't clean. Clean hair is able to absorb much more hydration than dirty hair. The hair cuticles are free of oils, sebum, and dirt. Therefore, there are no added layers that are preventing the hair from absorbing as much hydration as it needs.
So get your //GET CLARITY!// Hydrating + Grow CLEANSER to properly cleanse your hair from root to tip. It contains the key ingredient which is apple cider vinegar to cleanse the scalp. It will remove layers of product build-up, residue as well as excess oils and sebum.
2. Deep Condition With Heat
For the next step, we are all familiar with deep conditioning our curls. Some of us may do it overnight, for 60 minutes, or with oils. However, your deep conditioner will not maximize hydration if you do not apply heat. Heat is our friend if we want to open the cuticle layers along the hair shaft. After applying our masque, ensure to apply a steam cap, deep conditioning cap, or a plastic bag. The heat will form beneath the cap as the air is being trapped. Once the cuticles open, the nutrients from the product are able to penetrate the hair shaft.
With our //KNOW IT ALL!// Auto Correcting MASQUE your hair will get everything it NEEDS. This is the first-ever auto-adjusting hair masque. The smart correct polymers will scan the hair to see that it's lacking hydration. Then, it will correct it so it's able to restore life to your hair. The masque contains h20 which will hydrate the hair, jojoba/fuse oil to boost water absorption, and illipe butter to retain as much moisture as well.
