Let’s face it. Natural textured and curly hair types are prone to dryness. The kinkier and more coily the natural hair is, the harder it is to get and keep shine. This is because having more kinks and coils makes it that much harder for the natural oils your scalp produces to run down onto the rest of your stands. Those with a looser curl pattern don’t have as much trouble trying to maintain a moisturized look because the oil has a less tough route to travel. Make sense?
Well, while it may be harder for those in the coily category to get the shine they want, it is possible. But, there are things about your hair and your products you must know and steps you have to follow.
First, it is important that you know the difference between a moisturizer and a sealant, so that you can decipher what exactly your hair needs depending on its type. Since dryness is the leading cause of breakage for natural hair, taking in this hair knowledge and applying it to your hair is crucial for keeping and growing healthy hair.
