#1: I Neeeeeed Moisture. Help!
Ok. So I'm about to be 7 months post (Jan 1st. yaaaay me!). I really enjoyed the 1st 6 months of my journey. I've been protective styling it in Box Braids (my fav), French Braids and Bantu Knots. But now that I'm headed into the 2nd half I <i>reeeeally</i> want to give my hair a break from the box braids and start wearing my hair out, but im a little scared because my hair doesnt hold any moisture. I've noticed that my hair sucks up sooo much moisture. I can put a good amount of castor oil on my hair and by the time I turn around my hair is dry again. It feels dry and wiry (I guess that's because my texture is course) I do hot oil treatment and use castor oil to grease my scalp. What else can I do or use to preserve some moisture in my hair. I don't want my hair to break because of the lack of moisture.
