Sealing Moisture into your hair is as easy as 1… 2… 3…. Literally!
So what is hair sealing anyway?
Hair sealing is the art of creating a seal that does not allow moisture to escape the hair follicle.
Rules to Hair Sealing
Water is the only true form of moisture, if water is not present, neither is moisture.
2. Apply a leave-in, moisturizer or creme
Products: I adore Giovanni – Direct Leave In, it is a staple in my haircare arsenal. Or choose your favorite water based leave-in moisturizer.
Avoid products that claim to moisturize, but have petroleum or mineral oil in the first five ingredients.
3. Apply a top coat of an oil or oil butter. This is where the oil seal the hair creating a barrier for water to escape and also preventing anything else to permeate your hair. These are the best oils for sealing that have allowed me to retain the most length.
When I want to refresh or re-seal my hair on a normal basis. I reapply water to may hair and use Grapeseed Oil . Grapeseed oil doesn’t weigh my hair down, break out my skin or feel “oily”. Its a perfect sealing oil for the woman that wants to seal her hair often.
Hopefully you will be applying these easy steps with the usage of a protective style, if you are looking to grow out your hair. I have retained incredible length using this method.
