I believe in working with sectioned hair, saves on time and product and also helps in giving extra TLC to parts that need it. So, to properly moisturize, section your hair and hold each section with a scrunchie.
Rat tail comb.
If you aren’t into finger sectioning, well this is for you. I do sectioning with my fingers all the time, I don’t really care much about neatly sectioned hair, I love my hair looking a little wild lol.
Deep conditioners need a little heat to penetrate the hair shaft and strands, so either of the caps will come through. Apply your deep conditioner along your hair length, then wear your cap for a couple of minutes.
For applying oils on your scalp and hair to seal in the moisture. Perfect for hot oil treatments, heat up the oils and apply using your applicator bottle.
Bonnets/ silk pillowcases.
Help preserve moisture and are gentle on your hair unlike cotton scarf and pillowcase. Wake up with your hair moisturized and silky soft by either wearing satin/silk bonnets to bed or sleep on a satin/silk pillowcase.
A must have and use product if you’re chasing healthy hair. Deep conditioners restores moisture, improves elasticity, repairs and strengthens your mane. Use a moisturizing deep conditioner after cleansing your hair.
Restores moisture, softens your making it manageable and easy to style. Leave -ins are to be left in your hair until the next wash day and are to be applied after rising off the deep conditioner.
