Default Moisturizing at night?

So, how many of you are moisturizing 247

I conditioner wash just about every morning and either leave some in or apply a moisturizing, creamy leave-in, so I regularly moisturize my hair during the day. I also have some light oils and heavier leave-ins that I like to use at night, but don't have a regular schedule about when I do an overnight treatment. I go by when my hair starts to feel dry. Thankfully, spring and summer have been kind to my hair. I'll probably step up my efforts in the fall and winter.

My hair is way better in summer too, but I usually use some straight olive oil and/or a moisturizer every night.
I have a lot of moisturizers : Pink Oil, Motions, Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom, Curls Essential Element, Miss Jessie's Buttercreme, Jane Carter, ORS Carrot Oil.....

Never tried it. My biggest problem is that my ends get damaged from heat/coloring, etc. And I don't believe moisturizing treatments prevent that, even if left on over night. (Or am I wrong?) I just don't want cotton candy head again -- don't want to be overconditioned.

I'll put Jessicurl Oil Blend in my hair about twice a week at night and leave it in overnight.

Ditto. I also use coconut oil.

This is basically what I do, and I have some coconut oil which I've not yet tried so I guess it's time to crack open that jar!

I don't want to get overconditioned, so don't use overnight moisturizers mor often. But I do like the way that my hair feels the next morning

I use a leave-in or I just leave in regular conditioner. At night I spray with a mixture of distilled water/conditioner and sleep in a satin/silk bonnet or scarf. During the day, I will spritz with distilled water, or a mixture of water and glycerine. I keep the moisture going on full time. It's habit from when I was transitioning...though at that time I was using all kinds of heavy products and combinations. Sometimes it occurs to me that I am stuck in "damaged hair" mode, when my hair is really becoming healthy, though I still have some work to do. My hair is dry, though, and keeping it moisturized seems like the best thing.

I'm interested in your during the day spritz. Most of the time my hair stays moist all day, but some of my PJ product combinations go awry and I need some emergency moisture around 4 pm or so...

I definitely hear you on the "still in damaged mode" even when the damage is gone. I have SO many heavy duty conditioners and my hair is much less dry than before. I've slowed down on purchasing new heavy duty things, but still have to use up my stash!

PS. I just checked out your album - you have very pretty curls/ great hair!!

Thanks for the compliment!

Yeah, I'm trying to let go of that "mode". For instance, I am realizing that a protein deep treatment is REALLY not necessary weekly, and in fact, is not good for my hair anymore. Still...I feel weird abandoning it!

The moisture stays however. I got the vice grip on that one.

ETA: I just looked at your pics. You got some pretty curls, girl! You can really see how beautiful in the "underneath" pic!

You're welcome And "vice grip on moisture"... that's a good one

I gave up protein treatments too. I still have a half used bottle of Aubrey Organics GPB.... At least, I don't miss the strong smell of that product - phew!
