This journey is just awesome because you keep discovering new things about your hair. Since I have fine hair, I shyed away from heavy oils to prevent my hair from being weighed down but I had issues with dryness most times as my hair is porous.
While I was wearing my most recent protective style, I discovered that my hair retained moisture better when I used castor oil to seal. I have used many other type of oils and none of them sealed moisture effectively like castor oil did. After removing my extensions, my hair was so soft and felt damp, far from being brittle (which usually happens after you take out extensions).
I believe the heavier oils and butters are more effective sealants, especially during the colder months.
What about you? Do you retain moisture for prolonged periods of time and how do you seal moisture in your hair?
