My Moisturizing and Sealing Routine for Harmattan (2017)

It's just fair that this dry weather is met with serious moisturizing and sealing routine. 

Moisturizing has to do with using a water based product and sealing is done with oils or butters. I follow the liquid, cream, oil routine (L.C.O) as I find that to be a better option during this harmattan weather.
To effectively moisturize your hair, you definitely need to apply moisture first. Using oil first is like wearing your trousers before your underwear. You block out any moisture loss when you seal with oil that us why you need the water first before sealing. 

For each month of 2017, my moisturizing and sealing will be planned for the month for effective routine.

For January, I planned my hair routine ahead of time to reduce the amount of time spent on organizing my thoughts Lol.

  1. Spray the hair with rose water 

  2. Apply a bit of Mielle organics avocado hair milk

  3. Seal with my oil mix. 

 I do this at night because my morning schedule is whack! I try to sleep with a bonnet to maintain the moisture. In the morning, I simply scoop the hair into a bun. This routine is done daily for maximum moisture retention. 

I take my hair supplements at lunch time and that ensures consistency in my routine each day.

On Wednesdays, I plan to co wash for extra moisture. Don't you love it when your hair is long enough to bun even with all its shrinkage?
