    Try using Olive Oil products, I have really dry hair and it’s pretty good. Or try Jergen’s Ultra Healing Body Lotion mixed with vaseline…. trust me it works.

    If you have not …
    If you have not heard this, stop using the main and tail. It can make your hair dry, plus if you are going to use the DPR, add Olive oil, and you can add honey to it for extra moisture. I do Olive Oil and Black Castor oil in it. It works pretty well.

    Hi
    Pennsylvania …

    Hi
    Pennsylvania here…so I know what you mean about the weather.. I agree with the “what the Happen thing”..My hair is soft when wet ..SAHARA when dried. I am so sick of looking for something to make my hair soft.
    Have you had a luck yet finding anything??
    OILS DO NOT WORK for me..that includes coconut oil. Silicones are a diseaster too. Sooo I would love any ideas if you have them : )

    Thx
    Kim

    You may have “scab hair”. You may have to do another BC if it’s “scab hair”. Not an option? Well, don’t put your hands in your hair too much, try co-washing to see if that helps, look over the products’ ingredients you’re putting in your hair, & a gooood moisturizer is always good.

    okay…
    First …

    okay…
    First thing first… OIL WILL NOT MOISTURIZE YOUR HAIR!! Moisture equals water. YOu have to find the best regimine that incorporates a product with water. It has to be done. No matter how much oil you use…your hair will remain dry…YOU HAVE TO INCORPORATE WATER, thats the best advice I can give. Start there and continue to build up your regimine. IF you need any more help Private message me..and I’ll be happy to help you, because I know what you are going through!

    For me I use …
    For me I use Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Shampoo and Tea Tree Conditioner. I plan to try the shampoo and conditioner that is gear more toward moisture by Giovanni. I also use Oyin HoneyHemp Conditioner as a leave in. I also use Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil moisturizer hair lotion and it makes my hair soft. Through out the week I use a glycerin mix of 2oz glycerin, 6oz water, and some honey. Warning, I do think maybe the honey turned my hair to a brownish color a bit, maybe or maybe not :-)

    U may need 2 clarify with a clarifying shampoo or vinegar and water. Many times products build up on your hair. Most conditioners are filled with a fatty wax, (cetyl alcohol, or etc.) Try clarifying your hair and make ur last rinse cool water with honey to seal the strands and make ur conditioner stick. Then apply the conditioners that work 4 u.

    Hi i hope you find something soon. I’ve been having trouble with dryness too, and the best thing that worked for my 4b/4c hair so far was glycerine/water, and now im using the smooth and shine curl activator that really gave my hair alot of moisture!

    maybe you should try the olive oil formula of the ic gel. and possibly try some vegetable glycerin? that might help oh and the conditioner only method might be a good option for you since you’re in the twa stage. there are tons of vids on it too ^_^

    You sound just like …
    You sound just like me, we may have a simliar hair type. This is what I have tried that works, I wet my hair a little then I use a vegetable glycerin mixed with water and spray it on my hair. Then I rub alittle coconut oil over my hair and my hair is soft all day. Just type in Vegetable glycerin mix in the search bar and some suggestions will pop up. Hope this helps.

    Sulfate free and …
    Sulfate free and cone free products will definitely help. When you do find a regimen just stick to it. Try to stick to the same regimen for at least a week so you can see how it affects your hair. I don’t want to recommend anything because what works for one may not work for another. Good luck on finding a good moisturizer.

    Touching anything …
    Touching anything that can dry it out…and keep my hands out of my hair…which can also lead to dryness…style your hair as usual when you are going out. When you get home (this is what i do)- rinse your hair with water, cowash or shampoo, if it is your day to do so…apply conditoner, and seal with oil, tie hair up..chill or do whatever…it may take a few days for you to see results, it may not, i saw them immediately…sorry so long…hope this helps!

    too much, and that …
    too much, and that dried my hair out too…i tried every thing. I think the shea butter is more of a sealant than a moisturizer also. so now i only cowash twice a week and moisturize twice a day. In the morning i use the conditoner along with the water to moisturize my hair…and at night i just use water and olive…bc, it will reactivate the conditioner, and saves product…lol…if i am not going anywhere i make sure there is a satin bonnet or a scarf on my head..bc this keep my hair from …

    I do not mix the conditioner and water together in a spray bottle…i mean that I apply conditoner to my hair, then use water that is in a spray bottle…lol..try to make sure you keep yourself hydrated -water is a plus…TWAs are always dry, i had the same issue but now i dont anymore since i made changes to my regimen. You will be okay, this is soooo normal. I know eliminating the silicones and sulfates worked for me… but that is just me. Some ppl can take them. oh yeah, i used to cowash…

    I agree with …
    I agree with BRANDAAGAPE and txcutemami05…

    THis is what i do
    I use cone free products
    use conditioner as my moisturizer
    also use water along w/ the condish in a spray bottle to saturate my hair
    seal with olive oil..love (some ppl seal with butters, whatever you want to use)
    Tie my hair up at night…ALWAYS…denfinitely a must
    I have also stop using sulfate shampoos…dried my hair too much…

    That is it!
    oh yeah- try not to touch your hair too much that can lead to dryness too!

    the elasta qp mango butter is a great moisturizer. aloe vera gel always made my hair dry. i like to coconut oil. cantu shea butter leave-in is a good, you can mix it with oils, but not water based products. cantu doesnt mix well with gels n such so mayeb tht was a problem. glycerin n water balance helps me during summer. im in texas so i deal with hummidity n such. shea butter is good for styling to me, but not so much for moisture like when i do wash n gos n stuff.
