A few people asked me how I keep my natural hair dry-free in Crochet braids. My answer lies in Steaming. I have tried various methods to get my natural hair well- moisturized in extensions, and the best method in my opinion is the steaming method.
So I mix a concoction of Indian Hemp Tamanu Growth and Strengthen Masque with Aloe Vera juice and Jamaican Black Castor oil. The consistency was "lotiony". Excuse my fabricated word.
But yeah, the consistency was like a really diluted lotion. This made it spray -able but instead of spraying, I poured the concoction at the base of each Cornrow. I let it sit in my hair for about 20 minutes and
then sat under the steamer for another 20 minutes. My hair and the extensions became so soft.
I thought that the extensions would frizz up being that it is Marley hair but I was wrong.
I also shaped up the hair. You will notice that the extensions get out of shape every time they are hydrated.
I plan on doing this every weekend. That way, I really do not need to re-moisturize my hair regularly. Since my hair is in cornrows, the moisture is retained for a long time. However, my edges would be moisturized every other day and sealed with Beija Flor Naturals Creme Brulee and Jamaican Black Castor oil.
