Humectants will pull moisture into your hair to balance it out (absorb water, hold in moisture). Common humectants are glycerine, panthenol, honey, aloe, propylene glycol, and vitamin B5.

"Emollients are referred to as moisturizers that soften, smooth, and give shine. They are usually forms of oil or nut butters. And they work by increasing the hair's ability to hold water. Water is actually the best emollient, but because it evaporates quickly, it can be ineffective. This is where other emollients come in to play. Water, because it evaporates quickly, needs to be held on the hair by emollient oils in what is called emulsion." Some natural emollients are oils - jojoba, argan, avocado, extra virgin olive oil, shea, cocoa, castor, etc., also aloe vera.
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
