Let’s face it. When natural hair is dry, tangles and knots will rule. Even worse, when natural hair is dry, it becomes almost impossible to detangle. One way to prevent dry tangles is to apply a good moisturizer as much as your hair needs it. What makes a good moisturizer? A good moisturizer should give the hair shaft “slip” and relieve dullness and add body and bounce to the hair. A good moisturizer should contain natural (not synthetic) ingredients that are known to provide moisture. Synthetic ingredients are a no-go because they tend to sit on the hair to mimic true moisture and not be absorbed by the follicles or the shaft.
Good ingredients are: coffee butter, shea butter, castor oil, jojoba oil, hemp butter, honey and almond butter. Just to name a few.
