Keeping Your Natural Hair Moist

3 Tools that Promote Moisture in Natural Hair

Moisture doesn’t just come from the products we apply to our hair, it can also come from what we use to manage and care for it. Check out 3 tools that promote moisture in natural hair:

1. Satin Pillow Case/Scarf
You should all be familiar with this by now. At night you should protect your hair from the drying effects of polyester/cotton sheets and pillowcases, especially if you move around a lot like me. The satiny smooth material of the pillowcase/scarf will keep your style in place and keep dryness at bay. Don’t forget to line your hats and headwraps with this material or something similar.

2. Humidifier
If you live in a very cold/very hot dry climate or experience harsh temperatures, you may want to invest in a humidifier. This puts moisture back into the air. You can use it at night before going to bed. It is also good for your skin and prevents illness by keeping the mucosal lining of your nostrils lubricated to ward off germs.

3. Shower filter
Chlorine and calcium deposits from hard water can wreak havoc on hair (and skin) causing it to become dry, brittle and dull. A filter can keep these deposits from coating the hair. I purchased a filter from Home Depot for $20. Every 6 months, I purchase a replacement cartridge for only $10. It is so worth it! No more dry skin or hair in the winter!

Ladies, do you use any of these tools? How have they impacted your hair’s moisture level?
