Calling all coily beauties! Don’t let dry hair get the best of you. Looking to learn how to get hydrated coily hair and how to keep coily hair moisturized? Stick to these tried and true tips to level up your coils – unapologetically.
Use Moisturizing Coily Hair Products
The first step to keeping coily hair moisturized is to use the right products. Look no further than our Golden Milk Collection of hydrating shampoos, conditioners, and styling products that are specifically formulated for coily hair and contain moisturizing ingredients like coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, honey, and coconut oil. Additionally, other nutrient-rich sources that most benefit coily 4C hair types are shea butter and glycerin. In order to keep those coils thriving, avoid products that contain harsh sulfates and alcohols that can dry out your hair.
Deep Condition for Ultimate Coily Hair Hydration
Deep conditioning is essential for keeping coily hair hydrated and moisturized. Try applying a deep conditioning treatment like our Golden Milk Intense Recovery Treatment to your hair once a week or every other week, depending on your hair's needs. Leave the treatment on for at least 20-30 minutes before rinsing it out. Then, bask in instantly smooth, replenished, and repaired hair with improved manageability and shine.
Seal and Protect for Coily Hair Moisture
After washing and conditioning your hair, it's essential to seal in all that moisture while it’s still wet with an oil or leave-in conditioner like our Golden Milk Nourishing Leave-in Conditioner. This intense leave-in conditioner for curls and coils works to penetrate hair to lock in moisture and elongate hair for softer, easy to manage, frizz-free curls. It also maximizes slip to minimize detangling time for healthy hair. The most key ingredients to look out for are sealant oils like castor oil, grapeseed oil, or jojoba oil that will bring all the healing and nourishing benefits you want but won't weigh your hair down.
Lastly, make sure to protect all your hard work at night. Sleeping with your hair out can cause friction, leading to excessive breakage and dryness. To keep your hair moisturized overnight, wrap your hair in a silk scarf or bonnet. This will help to preserve your hair's moisture and prevent it from getting matted, tangled, and forming knots.
