Default How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

I moisturize my hair daily and I was wondering if it is neccasary to part my hair in sections from my nape of my neck up to my hair line moisturizing and sealing each section.

I watched a few videos on YouTube and some of you apply by running your fingers thru your hair with the product.

Just curious...what is your method?

Thanks Ladies!

Good Thread MySoon2Be!

I usually apply my Moisturizer all throughout Hair and let it absorb and then seal with whatever oil mixture I am using.

I do it the exact same way when I baggy too.

But I am always looking for Best Practices when it comes to Hair Care and always open for new methods/options.

I don't part my hair in sections. I just make sure that I distribute it evenly through my hair.

It depends on what I'm using.

Even though I'm in braids, I still moisturize the same way.

If I'm using something like Sta-Soft Fro, or something that I've mixed together, then I will spray it all over my head. If it's something of a thicker consistency (like Wave Nouveau), I will section my hair and apply it that way.

I seal mostly with Coconut oil, but last night I sealed with shea butter (loved it).

I part my hair in sections

I doubt just running my fingers through my hair will adequately moisturize it. How do you make sure the ng is moisturized? What about the ends? I guess if you don't wanna weigh your hair down while wearing it flatironed or something. I couldn't imagine doing it daily over an extended period of time because it doesn't seem that the moisturizer will reach every strand

Default Re: How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

When I first started my regimen I just washed and afterwards I put in a little leave in, a dime amount or ORS Olive Oil in the Jar sealed with a dime amount of olive oil and then rollerset. Then every night past that I would put a quarter amount of olive oil in my hands and run it through my hair and seal with olive oil

When I first get a relaxer I would just run my fingers through my hair with a moisturizer. Now that I'm 23 weeks post I moisturize and seal in sections. That is the only way to make sure my ng is moisturized.

I spray my ponytail with a water based moisturizer. No parting or combing until the next wash.

I part my hair in 8 to 10 sections. Put my leave in on each section and then seal each section with a butter or oil. I have started to smooth the product in from root to tip. I take the product and emulsify it in my palms and put a section of hair inbetween both hands and smooth all the way down. Kind of like using my hands like a flat iron and it has helped me alot.

Default Re: How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

I part my hair in 1 inch sections and apply a water based moisturizer like it was a relaxer. The more NG I have the thicker I apply it. Its the ONLY way I can ensure that my NG is moisturized and thus, the only way I can stretch my relaxers w/o breakage. Then I apply a light layer of moisturizer to my length and ends. I just recently figured out that this is what works for me. I only seal my ends and my edges with oil.

I finger part my hair into sections and moisturize. I don't seal, though.

Default Re: How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

I put my hair in four sections to six sections just because i noticed after running it through my hair esp. when im 8+ weeks relaxed, I dont get anything in the middle where the thickness has taken over..so ill moisture with my aloe vera + glycerin + rosewater mix, seal with coconut oil & then double seal with a cream moisturizer that has petroleum in it or vaseline. I noticed that the coconut oil doesnt seal all of the moisture in and by the end of the day i will be dry so when i seal everything in with a cream or thick petroleum base..it really keeps my hair moisturized and sometimes I will only have to moisturize every other day. And vaseline/petroleum is a GOOD SEALER.

Post Re: How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

I finger comb, detangle, moisturize, and seal once in the morning, and then again before I go to bed. I lightly spray my hair with distilled water first, then use my fingers to section hair into 4 sections. I let my hair just sit damp for a few minutes before I apply a pea sized drop of moisturizer to each section, paying close attention to the underside and the middle of each part while smoothing from root to tip with my hands. Last, I put a few drops of coconut oil on the bottom 2 inches, loosely clip the hair back and let it dry before styling. For smoother edges while styling and new growth, I will apply a little castor oil or unpetroleum jelly to my edges and lightly brush back for a nice sheen! This encourages my edges to lay down, and behave better!!
