“It’s been 5 weeks since my big chop. I want to know what I need to use on my hair to keep it from drying out.”
To keep you hair from drying out I recommend water followed with a product to seal in that water. I like using a mix of shea butter and coconut oil on my hair, and have done so with great success for many years. If your hair is short, feel free to wet it every day in the shower but I know that’s hard to do during the winter months. I would recommend getting a spray bottle and spritzing your hair with water every day then adding a little bit of your sealant remembering to focus on your ends. Currently I have several spray bottles, one with just water, another with water, some oil and some Kinky Kurly Knot Today Leave In Conditioner.
