Curly hair is often dry hair. Understanding how to moisturize your curls is important. Here are a few ways you can moisturize your curls to help get the most out of them.

Pre Poo:

Before cleansing your curls you need to pre poo. This is when you coat your curls with an oil such as coconut, olive or castor oil prior to shampooing. This helps seal in moisture so your cleanser doesn't strip it from your hair. Slather up your strands, cover with a cap, and allow to sit for 30 minutes before you wash.

Shampoo properly:

When you shampoo, select a gentle cleansing shampoo free of sulfates, parabens, and other chemicals. Completely saturate your curls and use conditioner to help create slip to section them out. Focus on washing each individual area of your hair, focusing on your scalp and then allowing the shampoo to rinse through your strands. Rinse with cool water to help seal your cuticle back down.

Condition curls:

Never skip your conditioner! This step is crucial for reintroducing lost moisture back into your curls. Always select a conditioner with water as the first ingredient, as water is the best way to moisturize curls. You should also make sure you're adding a deep conditioning treatment to your weekly curl care regime. Make sure to pick a product that's formulated for your curl type to get the most bang for your buck. Some curlies also opt to alternate their deep conditioners with a protein treatment to help maintain the structural integrity of their hair.

Hydrate curls:

It's equally important to think about the products you're introducing into your curls. Make sure you leave a leave in conditioner after your cleansing to help re introduce lost moisture into curls. This is also a time many curlies think about utilizing the L.O.C. method to help regain and retain lost moisture. You'll also want to think about using a regular curl refreshing spray.
