Dear CurlyNikki: What's your go-to winter moisturizer, and how can you really tell it's getting the job done and not faking the funk? I have type 4b hair and it's very dry and coarse. At times I feel that products that claim to be moisturizers are really just coating my hair and giving me the appearance of healthy hair. When you share your favorite moisturizer, please give a brief description of your hair please!

Dear Georgia: My hair is fine, mostly waves with some corkscrews in the back. Cottony and naturally very dry.

I *assume* my moisturizer is effective by (1) the feel of my hair... 2 days later (soft and cottony, not hard and crunchy), (2) the way it makes my hands feel after application, and (3) overall improved condition of my hair after three weeks of continual use.

I look for water-based moisturizers that contain butters and oils—preferably thick and creamy. Finally, I seek out products that claim to be intensive, rich moisturizers for dry and/or damaged hair. Can you guess my *current* go-to moisturizers? I've only been singing their praises for the last two weeks...

So far I've preferred Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner because it deeply hydrates and heals my hair which is no longer dry, instead it's healthy and shiny :)
I have 4a around the edges and 4c everywhere else, mostly those springy coils - looks like the ones in the push pins only slightly bigger. I love, Love, LOVE the Kera Care Natural textures line!!!! It does my hair just right. The only thing is that they dont have a deep conditioner for the line, but mayo, evoo, and a ripe avocado does the trick ;}
extremely dry when the weather started getting cold & the CD & Qhemet products weren’t enough.CURLS eally keeps my hair moisturized,probably because of the Quench [img]http://www.ukou.info/g.gif[/img]
I’m a 4b hair type. Although I’m mostly a wash and go type of gal. I prepare my hair by braking out my lanolin based natural oils (macadamia nut; safflower, almond; olive ; jojoba) along with( sage; mint; and rosemary herbs) that I blended the season before, which helps protect my hair from drying out during the winter months. I’m trying to stay away from gels and wet hair for the winter month, so it’s a TWA for me this winter …
I have found my moisture product! This is the first product I have actually purchased twice through out my natural hair journey. I'm using S curl curl activator/moisturizer with B12 vitamins. I almost passed it up because I thought it would be garbage on my hair but It moisturizes my hair all day long I take three pumps for my whole head and apply from end to root and the moisture + softness lasts all day I highly recommend it....ps the two top ingredients are water and glycerin.
I just switched from Carol's Daughter & Qhemet to CURLS Quench moisturizer & whipped cream because it got extremely dry when the weather started getting cold & the CD & Qhemet products weren't enough.CURLS eally keeps my hair moisturized,probably because of the Quench. I found I can also use S-curl no drip formula over the whipped cream if I run out of Quench.
So you use all of these products everyday? Seems like a bit much. Can you use some of them?
I am sharing according to the requirements of the article - I am a hair type 4B. My new winter moisturizer routine is Yes to Carrots Conditioning Mud Mask for co-washing, CURLS Leave In Moisturizer for daily application & Shea Moisture Coconut Conditioning Smoothie for the bounce in my fro every other day. YES PEOPLE I FINALLY HAVE A ROUTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray for me!
