Moisturizers are so important for curly and wavy hair. Our hair is more dry by nature and using products with moisturizing ingredients will help the overall health of our hair, allowing it to look better, feel better and even grow longer. There are several different ways you can use moisturizing products but once you use them regularly, you will feel your hair is softer and more nourished. I like to use them on wet hair before applying gel stylers or oils and then on dry hair every day to put the moisture back in my hair. Moisturizers come in various forms including conditioners, styling butters or even mists. Everyone’s hair favors different moisturizing ingredients.

My hair personally loves Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil. Because my hair is genetically super dry and also color treated, my hair might require more moisture than others with looser and similar curl patterns. It is all about playing and experimenting with different products to find what works best for you. Here are some of my favorite moisturizing products.
