VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of the book the natural hair Bible and founder of howtoblackhair.com and for these videos I love to answer the questions you are sending me via email so any of you have any questions you would like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box below for additional information so today we're going to get right on into this video in this video is an email I received from Nadia, Nadia emailed me because she is extremely frustrated with her natural hair she explains to me that she has done everything to make sure her hair can stay moisturized as far as keeping up with her shampoo and co washing treatments her deep conditioning treatments her protein treatments sleeping with a silk scarf making sure to seal her hair everything ago the natural hair she feels like she's doing all she cannot understand why her hair is always so dry so I'm placing the email Nadia I know a lot of you always ask me and always wonder why natural hair so draw the time even when I moisturizing to gets back dry again so well want to do is to give you three pointers are tips to help you understand why hair is dry things that you could do to help your hair is they moisturized so the very first thing that I want to say is something that you did mention that i was hoping you will is that you need to try out the LOC method so maybe you forgot to mention in the email or maybe you've already tried it with this is also great advice for the people who don't know anything about as well I've previously done a video on the LOC method as I explained what it is and what it can do for your hair and not as make sure to reiterate that again so the LOC method is a technique that you use to keep your hair moisturized for a longer period of time L stands for liquid and your liquid can be water or a leave in moisturizer O stands for oil so whatever oil of choice you can use that as you layer on top of your leave in and then C stands for cream or a hair butter are so any thick consistency butters are hair creams that you have for your hair care regimen or that you know you can use that's what you would layer lastly on your hair by layering your hair this order with products this is helping you to keep your hair moisturized for some people it ways the hair down a little bit too much so in that case used to switch up the different types of oils are different types of creams you are using on your hair and for others it works perfectly or at least helps the hair not to be dry as often as it used to so this is something I want you to try out I don't know if you have I definitely want you to keep in mind to help you to maintain some moisture in your hair the second thing I'm going to mention is that I'm not sure what kind of oils are using so I would suggest is that you use heavier oils heavier oils will be something like Shea butter it will be something like grapeseed and for some people grapeseed oil and for some people Castor oil is a little bit heavier on the hair so I want you to do is play around with different oils or butters to figure out which is going to stay on your hair and help your hair not to be greasy or slippery but to help you to keep your hair moisturized for longer periods of time because as you know and others also know when you put oil on top of when hair is slow down the evaporation of water from leaving your hair so say for instance you watch your hair and you don't put oil on your hair or some type of cream to keep water locked in your hair will get drier a lot faster than it would if you will put oil on your hair its going to take a long amount of time that oil to slide down off of your strands whether some your hands or your jacket or scarf or shirt it is going to take a longer amount of time for the oils to be wicked away which would allow for moisture to leave your hair the third thing a that the third thing down going to stay is that if you have course textured hair which is hair that is bigger in diameter than usual and you also have very curly hair this will confuse you with thinking that your hair is dry, dry hair is hair that's suffering from breakage you know that you have bad chronically dry hair when you're starting to notice spit ends it's not operating well with different types of hair styles that's truly dry hair but to touch very curly hair will feel dry I mean I have somewhere between course strands and I have some fine strands of my hair is 4c when I moisturize my hair and then I touch it about five minutes later after his dried it kind of sometimes just feel naturally thick a little bit more dry to touch even though I know my hair has been thoroughly moisturized so why would you keep in mind is that I want you to just let go of the stress of thinking that your hair is dry just going to break all part everywhere that's most likely not the case if you're doing everything right all the things that you mentioned to me that you don't with your hair is going to work out just perfect just keep the consistency going and just learn the nature of your hair you will realize on your hair is behaving differently to different things like heat straightening or after washing your hair and styles if this dry hair is leading to breakage you make sure to seal keep water seal in with some type of oil or butter on top of your hair this will help your hair to be moisturize for an extended period of time so thank you for sending the email I hope that been able to help you stay strong try not to get too frustrated with your hair and I hope all
