I think we all have had those days- that our twist out, buns, ponytails or whatever hair style- just looks a little dull and is crunchy and brittle.
Dry African-American curly hair, is normal! Our hair is naturally curly, coarse and dry, it's just how it grows out of our heads. With straight hair, it's easy for the natural oils to travel down the hair shaft, keeping it moisturized. But with curly, coily hair, it's a lot harder for the oils to navigate, which causes the hair to remain dry, especially towards the ends. So don't assume that because your hair is dry, it's always an indication of how well you care for your hair, or signs of neglect. Most of the time it's just a characteristic of our hair! I can moisturize the heck out of my hair and still have it be dry by the end of the day.
1. Water is your best friend! Spritz your hair lightly in the morning and definitely at night- depending on your style- a light mist or two should do the trick! (don't forget to seal with your favorite oil)
2. Deep condition at least once a week (or two weeks depending on your hair washing cycle). Deep conditioning is going to add that moisture back into your hair, and keep it feeling moisturized until your next wash day.
3. Moisture on the go- ok.. so I don't have a technical name for this.. but if your around the house for the day... or a couple of hours.... spritz your hair with water and cover with your trusty plastic cap- and if you need to run out- cover with a great scarf of a beanie hat! You can always apply your deep conditioner during this time as well.
