Eureka!!!!

Its so funny how the simplest things make a lightbulb go off in your head.

DUHHHHH..

If I want to stretch out my relaxer and avoid breakage. Sectioning and Parting when moisturizing will help greatly.

My new growth in the middle is always sooooo dry. I always just slap moisturizer on the top of my hair and smooth into a bun.

Thanks for starting this thread.

Funny thing is I was told a stylist not to even touch the ng. I was having so much breakage and each time I got a touch up they say my hair is breaking because I need a touch up. I was never told to keep it moisturized (which makes so much sense). If it wasn’t for looking at Tiffers how to photos I would still have the same problems…I dry broken mess. Thanks Tiffers.

After washing I immediately apply Lustre Silk Mega Moisturizer especially on my ends and put the remaining amount on the rest of my hair. Right afterwards, I apply 100% Coconut Oil in the same places to seal in the moisturizer. Then I let my hair dry naturally -- no heat since it's currently relaxed. My hair just loves it!

Default Re: How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

I run moisturizer through my hair with my hands, then finger part down the middle and apply more moisturizer to the middle of my crown, which gets dry. I use HE LTR and olive oil on my edges, nape, and ends, and then brush my nape and edges lightly to help tame them . I really only seal the length of my hair with oil after I wash. I cowash about 4x a week. I'm 11 1/2 weeks post though, so I may begin sectioning soon. But so far my NG is very soft and moisturized.

Well, if I'm in a hurry (which I usually am ). I'll just spritz my entire head with my water-based tea, aloe vera gel, and essential oil moisturizer. At night, when there's more time, I dampen my hair. Section and apply the moisturizer, mostly to my ends. Then I'll seal with whatever oil I have on hand. I'm trying to get rid of a lot of the oild I've bought.

I usually moisturize in twists and do it by section. Spritz with water, add leave-in conditioner and oil with castor oil or Vatika oil. I alternate, between using leave-in and just using oil after I spritz with water. I sometimes mix my cheapy conditioner with castor oil after I shampoo and just leave it in and seal with Vatika oil and braid for bed.

Default Re: How Do You Moisturize and Seal?

It depends on how much new growth I have. After a wash, I run my hands through my hair. I found out that MY key is to moisturize my new growth separately (if there's an adequate amount). At that point, I have to part my hair and apply Elasta QP Mango Butter to my roots. I then have to brush it through, apply a little bit of coconut oil, and tie it down with a scarf (if there's new growth). This gives my hair a great texture and my hair looks 'sane'.

Same here! I am 14 weeks post and managing THREE textures of hair. I was going crazy because my NG was so dry and my hair has been tangling. I see now that I have not been moisturizing adequately. A quarter sized amt. of moisturizer slapped on the middle of my hair does nothing for to tame my NG.

I rollerset my hair most times when I cowash....After taking the rollers out, I apply Lisa Akbari moisturizer to each curl. After I've done each curl, I put coconut oil in my hand and glide it over my entire head of hair. My curls are soft and shiny afterwards.

I section my hair and apply moisturizer mixed with oil at least 4 times a week. I make sure I apply some of the moisturizer to the ends first and comb slowly through the hair.

I am the total opposite. When I relax I section my hair. The more ng the less manipulating I do. By the time I am 10 weeks I don't section at all.

It depends on how much time I have, but usually since I don't have much time I just run my hands through my hair. I do notice I get better curl definition when I part it and comb it through.
