Project Mousturize

What good is nicely styled, but dry and breaking hair? Not a thing! That being the case, I’m making a conscious effort to focus less on styling my hair and more caring for my hair. Moisture is the key.

Before locs, before, before and after relaxer, I’ve always struggled with moisture. Not wanting to “oil my scalp”, as my mother likes to say. When considering how essential moisture is to the natural hair survival, you can see where I have a problem, right?

Herein lies my “project moisture” project. The goal–I bet you guessed it–is to achieve 100% daily moisturizing. Meaning, no matter how my hair is styled–twisted, braid out, twist out, or the plain ‘ole ponytail–I aim to use some moisturizing agent on my hair. Water. Beautiful Texture Butter Cream Moisturizer. Leave-in Conditioner.

So far no product has resolved my dry scalp issue but that could be from lack of consistency of use. Hopefully this challenge will get me on my way to moisture rich hair.

    Girl I have the same problem. i guess i’m a little lazy in the moisturizing my tresses department but then again nothing seems to work well enough that I want to be consistant. I’m working on my own mixtures to see what works and trying different products. Some moisturizers by the end of the week leaves your hair feeling icky. I’ll keep trying tho.

      Thanks for checking in. I must admit, I fell off for a few days and boy can I tell the difference. Our hair needs that moisture so badly! It’s no wonder I always encountered the hair problems in the past, but knowledge is power!
