Moisture is a key element for healthy hair. 

  • Use water-based moisturizers: If you are not comfortable applying only water to your hair, you can get a water-based moisturizer. This moisturizer will keep your hair soft and smooth at all times. 

  • Apply natural hair oil: You need natural hair oil to lock in water or water-based moisturizer to your hair. Some of the natural oil recommended for the hair include coconut oil, castor oil, and avocado oil.

    However, you must avoid applying oil on your hair daily; doing this will clog your scalp and prevent hair growth. If you have an oily scalp, you might want to skip this section. 

  • Deep conditioning is very important: Another way to moisturize your hair is by deeply conditioning it. Find time to apply conditioners to your hair and let it sit for a while, about 20 minutes before rinsing off. This method will deeply moisturize your hair while allowing it to soak in the nutrients from the conditioner. Condition the hair one in every two weeks for the best result.

  • Avoid heat styling: Using blow driers, and other styling equipment will strip your hair of its natural moisture, leaving it dry and susceptible to breakage. Avoid heat styling, and if you must, limit it to once a month.

  • Choose the right hair products: Some hair products dry out your hair rather than moisturizing it. At first, they may seem like excellent moisturizers, but when used for the long term, you’ll notice the damage done to your hair. This is because these products contain harmful ingredients that do more damage to the hair.

  • Use satin bonnets: Lock in your hair moisture and prevent breakages by using satin bonnets. Satin keeps the natural oil in place and prevents split ends. Do not opt for a cotton bonnet that can draw out moisture from your hair, leaving it dry and dull. 

  • Trim split ends: Trimming split ends regularly helps your hair retain moisture. You can do this yourself or get a professional. If you choose to do it yourself, be careful to not end up with an uneven hair length.
