Moisturising 101

Wednesday, February 8, 2012


Moisture is the state of being damp.In this case moisture in the hair is when water is absorbed and retained in the hair follicle or in the actual hair shaft. Having well moisturised hair is essential to attaining longer stronger hair.

We have been bombarded with questions regarding moisturising hair, especially now when the Nairobi sun feels like its pregnant with twins. When the air is very dry and humidity levels are low, moisture loss from the hair is very high.

In this heat there are two ways to make sure that your hair is properly moisturised.

1. Use a water based moisturiser such as ORS Olive Oil Moisturiser or our tried tested and cherished hair spritz. You can take out the glycerin and add a yummy smelling essential oil

2. Use either of these oils,
  • Coconut
  • Olive
  • Sunflower
  • Grapeseed
  • Castor oil
It is important that you lock in moisture to your hair. By moisturising and then sealing with an oil, the moisture is locked in to your hair for longer.

Very nice post ! Glycerin (vegetal origin) is one of the top moisturiser. Aloe Vera is great too.
To keep hair moisturised, it is also best to avoid excessive brushing (and drying).
Have a great day !
