How do I keep my curls looking moisturized?
I am mixed with about type 3 curls. My hair used to be really long with ringlet curls but after I cut it and put straighteners and relaxers in it the texture changed. It is really hard to get any moisture into my hair or even scalp. I try to oil my scalp with olive oil which helps but the curls are hard to keep up and looking their best. Any suggestions?
Have you tried shea butter? It works really well to moisturize and add shine and definition. try a tiny amount to start because too much can look greasy. You can gradually work up to larger amounts until you settle on what works best for you. Here are a couple to check out. http://Shop.NaturallyCurly.com/product/sheamoisture-raw-s...http://Shop.NaturallyCurly.com/product/carols-daughter-he...
You will have to be patient and start with a repair and treat regimen to restore your from damage. Deep condition weekly. Shea moisture does not work for my hair as everyone suggests. I would suggest you start testing and trying out moisturizing products that will work for your hair.
