Is daily moisturizing really necessary? I ask this because I am putting myself on a challenge to wear protective styles month at time. However, when I spritz my hair to moisturize it, my hair gets fuzzy and I experience a lot of shrinkage. I often find myself retwisting my hair so it can look neat. But doesn't that defeat the purpose of reducing manipulation?. My hands are always in my hair because I am moisturizing daily and sometimes restyling my hair.
When I first went natural, I did not even know about moisturizing daily and I was able to retain length. This makes me think that I may be trying too hard to keep my hair moisturized. I was reading a post here at Healthy Hair and Body. This got me thinking about how much I manipulate my hair.
