How do you moisturize your hair while it’s in a protective style?

Avatar • May 12, 2011

Reader Teesha (not pictured above) says;

So, can I just say that protective styling is NOT as easy as it sounds/looks (*sigh*)

After 4 years of mediocre length (I have between 5 and 8 inches) I’ve decided to buckle down and get disciplined about protective styling. I’ve been putting my hair into 10 fat braids, pinning them up and sealing the ends with shea butter & castor oil every morning and evening. But I noticed that by the time the week was over and I was ready to wash my hair, the ends were really dry and breaking. I concluded that, because my ends were dry/unmoisturized to begin with, I wasn’t sealing in any moisture… but basically putting shea butter on the equivalent of a dry twig. So, week 2 I decided to try daily moisture.

In the back of my mind was the mantra; nothing moisturizes hair like water! So I sprayed some water & apple cider vinegar in my hair — root to tip — and then rubbed some castor oil in my hands and smeared it all over, then put my shea butter & castor oil on the ends… Well, um, a few hours later my hair was dry as a bone — WORSE than when I was just putting shea & castor oil. So I desperately layered Bear Fruit Hair Desert Moisturizer & Leave-In on top — which, I’m guessing, didn’t penetrate the strand because of the previous product buildup, because my hair felt even dryer (let me be clear, it was NOT the fault of the Bear Fruit Hair Leave-In… because it’s actually a really awesome product. It’s my fault for the way I layered it on). EVEN in the braids, my hair feels dry and upset (lol) The ends are snapping like twigs and it feels like straw.

I’m hopping into the shower after work to wash my hair and press the re-set button.. but before I do so, I need some help! How do you effectively moisturize your hair while it’s in a protective style so that it feels soft & supple? Should I have used a spritz? Should I have just moisturized my ends instead of my whole head. Help!!

Alright ladies, help her out! What is your moisturizing regimen when you’re protective styling. Please share!

Teesha, the problem may be with you routine and the way that you are using your products. I also think that you should use acv as a rinse, not as a leave-in. Finally, piling on to many different products on your hair will hinder growth and also makes it harder to figure out whether or not one of the products is the culprit of your dry hair. I personally have my hair in protective styles 95% of the time because I have a busy schedule between working and going to school full time. To moisturize, I use Giovanni direct leave-in… Read more »

ACV is not used as a leave-in…it’s used as a clarifier for hair/scalp. I imagine it could be quite drying… Also, butter/oil don’t moisturize. Try a water-based leave-in with butters/oils and humectants.

When I wear buns or updos my moisturizing regimen is the same as when I wear “out” styles–apply leave-in conditioner to damp hair and seal my ends with shealoe. I don’t do the daily moisture thing though…I just moisturize on wash days (ever 5–7 days).

Hi MangoMadness and Risa

I use ACV as a leave in all the time and my hair loves it. It seals your cuticles I mix a tbsp in with a pint of black or green tea.

What works for me:

Moisturize root to tip while hair is DAMP with leave-in conditioner first then a little oil.

If your hair is really dry, try a deep conditioner first before you wash and maybe even a prepoo with oil before you wash.

Alternatively, have you washed all the buildup from your strands? If you aren’t getting the gunk out from between your hair cuticles, it will be dry. You could try washing thoroughly all your hair and then deep condition to “start over”. Wash deep condish out and moisturize as stated below.

When protective styling, I usually do so on wet hair. I add my leave-in (usually Oyin’s honey hemp) and a moisturizer (Oyin’s whipped pudding, which is water based). Then I seal with an oil. My hair stays moisturized for days and I really don’t have to add anything else as the week goes on.

That’s what I was thinking. You need to do a clarifying and just start over. Moisturize while the hair is still damp with a leave-in such as Garnier Frutis and then seal with an oil. Like Lauren (above) my hair usually stays pretty moisturized for a few days.

When I have my protective style in (full head sew-in) I usually just spray the roots with braid spray to re-activate the leave-in/oil mixture. I haven’t seen any snapped ends yet. *spits on self for luck*

Most times, I just take down and spritz JUST my ends with water + conditioner mix every other morning (whether it’s in big braids, twists etc.) and then seal with a tiny amount of shea and coconut oil blend I made and then pin it all back up. it’s served me well these last 18 months and i’ve had crazy gains in length/retention. If my protective style is a big french twist (like i have up this week) I just lightly spritz the whole thing daily to touch it up and keep it fresh and with my hair since it’s… Read more »

At first I would soak my whole head thinking “more moisture! More product!” but It was difficult and messy and my hair wasn’t making any reasonably awesome gains.…. and my head was wet all the time. I reduced how much i used and went a little to far in using too little moisture for a time, but I figured out what worked for me was just moisturizing and sealing the ends during the week and then my deep condition on the weekend/hair day!

I think the ACV was the culprit and dried your hair. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong but ACV should be rinsed out of the hair after application and never left on.

The base of my spritz is always water and conditioner or li conditioner. Depending on my hair’s mood I’ll add glycerin or avg and/or some type of oil. I spritz my hair every couple of days. by the way i have 4a/b hair. I use a spritz for my daughter’s 4c hair but i lightly mist her hair every other night.

I leave in my ACV rinse, and my hair has thrived from it. However, I only use it as a final rinse on clean, product free hair after I wash/condition and it’s approx 1 part ACV to 5–10 parts water/hair tea/aloe vera juice. I would never use it as a spritz or leave it in on top of other products. When in protective styles, every few days I’ll apply a light, water based moisturizer like QB burdock root butter cream or shea moisture milk to my hair then seal with some type of shea or oil based product.

Well aren’t you doing the same thing she (teesha) is doing? you make up an concoction with the acv and raw ingredients while teesha is layering the raw ingredients over the acv?
any-who I’m glad it is working for you. I could never leave acv in my hair. i do a acv rinse after i condition my hair (rinse with water following appl of acv) and sometimes i apply acv before shampoo to close the cuticle.

If you’re putting on ACV before shampoo, you’re wasting your time. You’re only going to open the cuticle with the warm water you use to shampoo your hair.

No, because I’m not using the ACV for moisture. I’m using it as a final rinse after cleansing to lower my hair’s ph, which helps to close the cuticle and makes it look smoother/shinier/etc. Plus, I’m using it on hair that’s freshly washed, product free, and still wet, all of which also make a difference. There’s a also huge difference btwn applying pure or highly concentrated acv and then adding water versus applying a diluted solution of acv. Many conditioners contain sodium hydroxide to balance their PH, which is the active ingredient in relaxer. Applying the conditioner (diluted SH) directly… Read more »

+1 Moni! I final rinse with diluted ACV and have cleansed with it with great results. Before giving definitive advice on someone’s routine, many would do well to remember that everyone’s hair is different and we all know just as much as the next person when it comes to what’s best for hair, it’s all subjective and an ongoing learning process.

I know that my response is WAY late here, but I think the confusion is that Moni stated that she sometimes applies acv before shampooing to close the cuticle. She also said that she does an acv rinse after conditioning. It was the acv “before” shampooing that Aiden was referring to.

I leave mine in, and my hair seems to be doing fine, but everyone’s hair is different, so your mileage may vary.

However, I always deep condition post-ACV, (then rinse that out with cold water) and that may help. Also, she said she goes straight from ACV to castor oil — that’s probably a large part of the problem. To me, that’s kind of like using a clarifying shampoo and immediately sealing with coconut oil.

I too have a problem moisturizing my hair in protective styles, mainly twists and weaves though. However, your problem may be product choice. For example my hair hates shea butter (although it works great for others) so you may have to use only one moisturizer at a time with your water to try to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

The AVC should definitely be rinsed out of your hair.

I would wash, deep condition, and use a butter like Bee Mine Balanced cream moisturizer when you put in the braids, then a light oil like coconut.

Through out the week to keep your hair moisturized you can use Shea M oisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold and shine moisture mist or Oyin Handmade Greg Juice twice a day.

Did you deep condition prior to braiding? That is one thing that really upped the moisture level of my hair. As you said, you can’t seal in moisture that isn’t there; you have to restore the moisture first before you go adding butters and oils to seal.

And as it’s just glycerin there is minimal build up. Its cheap, not too greasy very moisturising.

Yes, take the ACV out of your moisturizing regimen because it can be drying to the hair as a leave-in. I wear my hair in protective styling 98% of the time. I have natural cornrows. I moisturize DAILY. Start with WATER, then a Creamy moisturizer (a leave-in condish or anything of your choice) and then SEAL with an oil or butter. The thing that also helps with moisture while in protective styling is the use of the Baggy method. I baggy my whole head with the use of a plastic cap.

ACV should not be left in your hair.

Try an aloe vera juice spritz then seal with the shea butter. In between washes you can use the spritz again

Another alternative spritz is water with a bit of glycerin in it.

I noticed that when I do “too much” my hair does not respond well. I think that may be your issue, your hair may need moisture every other day. Here is a moisturizing spritz–rose water (or water), aloe vera gel, vegetable glycerine. Use all three in equal parts and spray with then. Then seal with some oil if you want. I agree with the comments about seeing what works and what does not. Less is more sometimes.

ACV is a clarifying agent– it’s highly acidic and works to remove natural oils, not to moisturize. Try water and glycerine or a mix of water, glycerin and aloe juice/gel to spritz your hair and leave in. You’ll notice the difference immediately.

Stacey

im pretty much with everyone else on this. i think the ACV as a leave in spritz is a bad idea bc its not moisturizing. i would instead say use a combination of water (#1 moisturizer ever, lol), aloe vera juice, & maybe even glycerin (its a great humectant) as a leave in spritz, then seal with shea or castor oil or whatever your sealant of choice is.
Once you find the right product combo for you, it should be smooth sailing from there. 🙂

To moisturise my protective styles of choice (usually minibraids without added hair) I spritz with spring water (sometimes with a little aloe vera juice or commercial spritz added), then follow up with a Qhemet Biologics product (I like the Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee, Burdock Root Butter Cream and Amla and Olive Heavy Cream. I do this every other day or so for the duration of a set of minibraids (4–5 weeks), shampoo about once a week in those braids, and when I come to take down my hair it is lovely and moisturised. Hope this helps.

I was wondering, Pooks,

My hair is, well I’m not sure if I would call it “fine” or “medium,” but it’s not thick/kinky, it’s 3C/4A/3B (for reference purposes), and when I wear braids, without added hair, my hair sort of frizzes, when I co-wash, or have them in longer than 3–3 days. Do you know how I could make them last as long as your 4–5 weeks? Should I just stop co-washing(which is 2x/week)? My hair is currently in box-braids, with added hair now.

Well, what causes fuzziness for me over time is how often I wash my braids, so I imagine with a looser curl pattern it would be even more so. You can try washing less often, but still make sure your hair gets the moisture it needs by spritzing it with water regularly and not overmanipulating it especially while wet. I wouldn’t recommend you neglect cleansing your scalp for extended periods just to maintain a style though — to some extent fuzz/frizz comes with the territory. HTH.

Hi! I tried using ACV and it did not work for me at all. My hair was horribly dry even if I washed it out! I know it works for others, not for me. But I do moisturize with water, then use a leave-in and either shea butter and coconut oil or just coconut oil.

I would definitely nix the ACV.

To moisturize my hair while in twists, I moisturize the ends only, and I do so by first wetting the ends, either by hand or spray bottle, apply a dime to quarter size amount of leave-in or conditioner, then seal with an oil.

Good luck.

Last night I re-moisturized my 4‑day old two strand twists by spraying them with water until they were extremely damp & then smoothed them with my leftover kimmaytube leave-in conditioner from root to tip. My hair feels as it did on the first day I twisted my hair, soft and moisturized. This will hold me until my next wash on Sat or Sun.

I am not a hair expert but from reading your question, it really sounds like you are using too much product. I have noticed from hair blogs and youtube that people have all of these products in their routine and it baffles me. Honestly, sometimes the best thing you can do for your hair is mostly leave it alone. Also, leaving apple cider vinegar in your hair is a major no no since it is actively breaking things down, your hair is no exception. Think about what what acid does to your teeth over time — ACV is very acidic.

I think many of us ignore the fact that PH comes in to play when we talk about dry hair. To be able to retain moisture you have to maintain hair PH at 4.5–5.5. So first of ACV is very acidic even if you use it for rinse you have to make sure it is diluted at least 1 part ACV to 10 parts water to be optimized that goes the same for lemon juice used in henna and other concoctions, it has a very acidic ph and dries hair out.

What your hair probably needs is a protein wash or treatment. I was dealing with the same issues for the past couple of weeks. I was using shea butter, castor oil olive oil and anything else I thought would tackle my dryness.I know these dont moisturize but my usual moisturizer was not getting the job done. As soon as I washed my hair with a protein shampoo and conditioner i immediately noticed reduced breakage and hair was much more soft and felt more moisturized. You may want to try some protein!!!!

Along with moisturizing first with a water based product (mine is a homemade spritz of water, aloe vera juice and honey) and sealing with an oil, I’ve rediscovered baggying (spritzing hair with hair spritz, rubbing some oil into hair and covering with plastic cap) overnight to be a tremendous help in keeping my hair moisturized in protective styles. It also helps when I’m too lazy to do much with my hair.

Sounds like ur hair doesn’t agree with shea butter. You said you changed somethings and the only thing that remained constant was shea butter. Your hair probably does not like it. The truth about shea butter is that its not a moisturizer. Its just a sealant. Putting it on dry hair will just cause it to dry out your hair because since it is very heavy, it acts similar to mineral oil and blocks water in the air from getting into the hairshaft daily.

there’s value in sticking with certain products and a routine for a time to see if it works but don’t be afraid to abandon a routine and/or products that are not working for you. if your hair seems worse off by what you’re doing start eliminating and tweaking. it shouldn’t take weeks for your hair to respond favorably to products or a routine.

Honestly, the problem here is that your using a ACV water mix. That is really counter productive. ACV is used to cleanse the hair, it removes the product that’s how it cleanses your hair. So why would you use it to moisturize if its main purpose to exit product out of your hair instead of adding it. Try using only water before adding your shea butter and castor oil. It should do the trick! Also seal your ends and tuck them away so they aren’t exposed. The hair on the outside being exposed, like your edges or the outside of… Read more »

People often make it more complicated than necessary. I say to moisturize you need 5 steps.

1. Wet it a little or a lot in the shower…you can alternate between that and an alcohol, protein free leave in
2. Close cuticle and adjust pH by spritzing some aloe vera juice
3. Seal with oil
4. Repeat daily or twice a day
5. Baggy overnight
