How to Restore Moisture to Black Hair in the Summer
The summer heat can take its toll on any head of hair. According to African Hair Store, the sun dries out the hair and can make it brittle. Even for those who live in humid climates, having their black hair retain moisture is not guaranteed. Restoring the lost moisture that the summer heat and sun cause is not a difficult task. Deep conditioning on a weekly basis with light conditioning everyday are the best ways to restore moisture to black hair during the summer months.
1. Shampoo and condition your hair as you normally do. Squeeze the excess water from your hair.
2. Generously apply a deep conditioner to your hair. Place a plastic cap on your head and leave the conditioner in for 15 to 25 minutes.
3. Rinse the deep conditioner out of your hair with warm water. Squeeze the excess water from your hair. Style your hair as you desire.
Daily Moisture Renewal
1. In the morning, comb your hair using your wide-tooth comb. Lightly spritz hair with a leave-in conditioner. Brush the conditioner through your hair using a paddle brush.
2. Apply hair dressing to your finger tips and rub it into your ends. Style your hair as you desire.
3. In the evening, scoop out an index finger full of hair butter. Place the butter into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together to thin the hair butter out. Smooth your hands through your hair and brush your hair to distribute the butter evenly.
4. Cover your hair with a silk scarf, do-rag or nylon stocking.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4, six times a week.
