Moisture, Moisture, Moisture

The key to real estate I’ve always heard is location, location, location. Well I think that holds true for kinky, coily hair except change the word location to moisture, moisture, moisture.

I’ve been experimenting with spritzing with a sprayer that gives a stronger mist stream than the push pump bottle and spritzing more than once a day for a couple of weeks now. I make sure to lift the locs up to get in between the layers and the underside of the locs as well. What’s in my spritz you ask, well just water and a couple drops each of lavender & eucalyptus essential oil in this pint container. I’ve tried aloe juice & gel, vegetable glycerin, silk peptide powder, leave in conditioners and a few others. They all seemed to leave my hair feeling slightly stiff. Oiling my scalp with olive, jojoba, sweet almond & coconut oil was making my scalp flake even more. So again, I’m finding less is more in terms of products. That’s not a typo on just 2 drops each of the EOs. More than that left my locs again with that slightly stiff feeling when it dried. Not complaining though… less product is good for my pocketbook too.

Now as far as moisture specifically water, the exact opposite is true at least for my hair. More is better. This is the softest my hair has ever felt. Incredible. No other product except water & EOs. Even if I could use conditioner, there is absolutely no need for it right now. The portions of my hair that is mostly locked is soft. Those locs feel like a firm sponge. I never knew that natural, kinky, coily hair could feel this good. WARNING THIS HAS SIDE EFFECTS: H-I-L-D better known as hand in lock disease. I can’t help it, my hair feels sooo good. I never knew that natural hair is really like this as we are taught to be afraid of water, surely don’t let it get on your hair.

My hair is glad that I’ve decided to take this journey. For the first time in my life that I am comfortable in my own skin. Natural hair & locs are that powerful.

Until next time,
Peace, Love & Laughter
