Hydrating vs. Moisturizing the Hair.... What’s the Difference?

Hydrating vs. Moisturizing the Hair

What’s the Difference?

Hydrating the Hair- The process of using humectants, proteins, amino acids and critical vitamins that penetrate the hair fiber infusing and improving the absorption of water and nutrients so that the hair holds and retains moisture.

Moisturizing the Hair- The process of using butters and oils to coat the OUTER surface of the hair fiber sealing and locking down the hair shaft so moisture can not get in or out of the fiber.  

Simply Put….FIRST you HYDRATE the hair to penetrate, absorb & nourish the hair from within. THEN you seal and lock down the hair shaft with a MOISTURIZER to keep the moisture in the hair.

Great leave in

This pairs great with the butter cream moisturizer. I some time use it for a curl rejuvenator. Love the slip It gives too.


This butter is the best. I used it after a wash and 5 days later my hair is still hydrated. I will purchase again.

Time Tested

I loved this product in the past and it still holds true today. A great strengthening treatment that does not leave your hair feeling fried. It actually feels moisturizing and has awesome slip. I'm sad to see it go.

Mask Up

I used this mask for 30 min under the dryer after clarifying my hair it made it my hair butter soft. I am so sad they are discontinuing this product. Get it while you can!!! I know I will!!!!

Hands down best on the market.

I have tried many products for natural hair, and I must say.... nothing locks in moisture and adds shine like the hydrator and creme jelle style mixed. Your twist will have body and stay hydrated for at least 2weeks to a month.. I'm very pleased.
