Moisture is not just an aspect of Afro hair care but a soul that gives life to every distinctive curl, coil, and wave present on your body. In this article, we’ll be exploring just that, as well as the aspect of over moisturization (also known as hygral fatigue).
Because of its distinct structure and qualities, Afro-textured hair depends heavily on moisture for health and vitality. Moisture is essential for maintaining Afro-textured hair for the following reasons:
So, we need to eradicate it from your mind that moisture is a foe. In fact, being nice to our hair means wetting it up. That’s why many natural hair gurus advice having a spray bottle on you, so you can easily feed your hair the moisture it needs. This eases styling, minimizes breakage and helps build hair strength.
There exists an equilibrium that should be maintained when moisturizing. Hygral fatigue occurs in a situation where one exposes the hair to too much moisture that results in having hair that feels mushy, limp and excessively soft.
If left this way, your hair will feel weighed down, your curls will struggle to hold their shape and they will have little definition. This generally points to weakened strands as a result of too much moisture.
The Culprits Behind Hygral Fatigue
Hygral fatigue may be caused by frequent use of deep conditioner or hair masks, having damaged hair (this makes it more porous) and over washing hair (strips hair of its natural oils, compromising your hair’s repelling properties).
To prevent hygral fatigue, restrict use of products that greatly boost hair moisture, like deep conditioners, to once every 2-3 weeks. Additionally, avoid excessive shampooing; restrict this to once every 2-3 weeks as well. Finding that perfect balance will ultimately help maintain the vitality of your hair.
