In the last post of these series, I shared my experience using the Denman Brush and learning to finger detangle.
Please note that I am no expert. I am documenting my journey and sharing the lessons I have learned from my mistakes. Be very careful about using the products that other people are raving about. In general, whether you have fine or thick hair, if a product works for one person, it may not work for you!!!!
Let's talk about Moisturizing fine hair
I was using a heavy creamy leave in
concoction that my hair was heavily weighed down from. Also due to the consistency of the leave in (creamy), it cannot not be sprayed, it has to be applied to the hair with the hands. For me, the process of applying the creamy conditioner to my hair was breaking my fragile ends!! I had pieces of broken hair in my hands when applying this cream, because I had to manipulate my fine fragile wet hair while applying it.
My point: IN MY OPINION, It is best to use a water-based liquid leave in on fine hair, the one that does not require any hair manipulation and would not weigh the hair down. I say this because hair has to be moisturised frequently and if fine hair is being manipulated every time it is being moisturised, it is bound to break!!! I have had success with moisturising my hair with just a mixture of water, aloe vera juice, vegetable glycerin and grapeseed oil (which is really light). This concoction is in a spray bottle. When moisturizing my hair, I do not have to touch my fragile hair.
