Moisturizers that don't have water in them
 
This winter I want to try braiding my hair. Unfortunately, I attempted to use my usual castor oils and coconut oils on my dry blown-out (into a fro) hair and it is a disaster. Oils only work on my wet hair, so I tried to use butters but that didn't work either because water was the first ingredient which equals monster reverting. Any suggestions on waterless moisturizers that I can use to start the braiding process?

pomades

anything that doesnt have water or aloe vera juice/gel isnt considered a moisturizer if im not mistaken


Most pomades are butters without water/liquid

I have never heard of a hair moisturizer that didn't have water or at the very least AVJ. Someone posted in 4b about moisture making people's hair greasy which baffles me because I don't understand how water can make greasy.

You're right, they aren't moisturizers. So I guess it would only make sense to do my usual moisturizing before the blow out process then use a pomade for 'slip' while braiding. This is what I need because the last time I tried braiding my hair with natural oils after blow drying all I heard was snap-crackle-pop.

Grease sounds like a good idea. Time to hit up my local beauty supply! Any suggestions?

In the winter, I love Hairveda Almond glaze or Qhemets Amla Nourishing pomade for mini twists & flat twist up-dos. I layer these on well moisturized dry hair. Both seal very well & the scents are light enough to not be annoying for my protective styles.

Thanks, I am going to check em out. I admit it is hard to keep up with all the brand names lol.

Botanical Spirits Avocado Coconut butter. It's thick and quite moisturizing. The 4oz jar will last the entire winter as you don't need much.

Another tip: Don't forget to make sure your blow dried hair is moisturized first with a good leave in. You can then apply your pomade, oils, butters, etc.
