How I moisturise my natural hair

*Affiliate links.

I transitioned from texturised hair to natural hair about 5 years ago, and I have no regrets. My hair is strong and healthy, and I love how it looks. When I had texturised hair, my hair was horrible. I had no edges and my hair was breaking a lot. It was so weak and unhealthy, and I couldn’t stand the sight of it anymore. I was tired on hiding it underneath hair extensions that only made my hair condition worse, so I decided to embark on the long road to freedom – natural hair route.

The journey has been long and hard but so worth it. It took me a long time to figure out hair products that worked great for my coarse hair. I tried all sorts of products and I am still trying new products regularly. In my search of trying out new products, I came across the amazing Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil, Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream and some great Sheamoisture Hair Care products. I use SheaMoisture Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Masquwe every 2 weeks and these products help create the right foundation for the rest of my hair care products. 

Before stumbling on these products, I have used lots of shampoos, conditioners, masques, oils and leave in conditioners. But my current hair care products mentioned above are the best for my hair type. They are so good for natural hair protective hairstyles too!

You can watch me in the video use Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil and  Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream. These products help me moisturise my natural hair beautifully, making it soft and manageable. They also help my hair grow and stay healthy. I can’t see myself ever not using this oil and leave in conditioner. They are the best hair products I have tried in a long time. Do watch the video and tell me what you think of these haircare products and how I moisturise my natural hair.  You can follow my YouTube Channel for more updates.

How to Manage Natural Afro Hair

I have been keeping my natural hair for almost 2 years now, and the journey has been like a roller coaster ride. Some days, I get so sick and tired of the high maintenance nature of my natural afro hair, I feel like relaxing it. But then, I stop and remember why I decided to keep my hair natural, and that keeps me going.

If you have been following my natural hair journey, you would know all about how unhealthy my hair was, which was the reason why I decided to keep my hair natural, free from chemicals.

My hair is now very healthy, and it is growing like weed, but it is so difficult to manage. Which is why I wear it in protective styles most times, and pop a wig on, which helps it grow.

I have learnt many tricks and tips when it comes to managing my natural hair. I have a very coarse hair texture, so it is extremely difficult to manage my hair, but what works and what doesn’t.

Here are a few tips that work for my hair and may work for yours –

 

Moisturise everyday

I moisturise my hair everyday with water and Almond Oil in a spray bottle. I have a very dry scalp, and my hair tends to lose moisture very quickly, so using just water does not help. The Almond Oil helps soften my hair and retain moisture, which is great for my scalp and growth of my hair.

Use a Deep Conditioner once a month

I use a deep conditioner once a month. This helps strengthen my hair, and leaves it shinning.

Use a Leave-in Conditioner

I use a Leave-in Conditioner everyday I have my afro out and twice a week when I have it in a protective style. It softens my hair, making it easy to manage, and it also helps in the growth.

Wash every week

I wash my hair every week with Shea Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. I make sure I leave the conditioner in for about 15 minutes before washing it out, which helps to soften my hair.

 

Wear my hair in protective styles to sleep

I never go to bed without putting my hair in a protective style, making sure to tuck in the tips.
