Moisturizing 101
What is a moisturizer? It is a hair product that is applied to the hair strands to return moisture that has been lost. It is a product used to combat dryness of hair stands.

Importance of keeping hair moisturized.

  • Well moisturized hair is less prone to breakage
  • Well moisturized hair is more manageable
  • Well moisturized hair looks good.

Finding a good moisturizer.

  • A good moisturizer must be water based. Water is the best thing to return moisture to the hair. Make sure water is a part of the first three ingredients on your moisturizer.
  • Avoid products that have mineral oil, parabens or petroleum
  • Avoid products which contain drying alcohols like ethanol, porpanol and SD alcohol.
  • For hair that feels too mushy or frail, look for products with proteins
  • For protein sensitive hair, look for products that contain just one protein, or none at all.
