WELCOME to my new followers!!! I don't know that I have any real goals for the amount of followers that follow my blog, but I do appreciate people joining and following, it makes my ranting posting worthwhile. :-)
Onto the topic at hand: Hair moisture and softness. One of my new goals is to moisturize DAILY. This can be with a spritz of water followed by a leave-in, shea butter or oil. Regardless, my goal is to moisturize daily. Some of you may be thinking: "WHOA Monique, isn't that a bit much?"
Well, let me tell you about my hair: It always feels dry, with the exception of RIGHT after I apply a moisturizer or am doing a DC. Sometimes I wonder if it's ok for my hair to feel this way, simply because it's never not felt this way, with one exception. Once time last year in October, I applied warmed shea butter to my hair and it felt soft the ENTIRE weekend. Other than that one weekend, I've never been able to maintain the softness. I tried it again, but I didn't see the same results.
Do any of you experience this? Do you apply a moisturizing product but see no difference? Is this something I should be concerned with?
I'm wondering if these issues may have something to do with the quality of the tap water that I use to wash my hair -specifically looking at the hardness of the water. I work for a water company and have a lot of familiarity with water quality. Look out for a post on this and an analysis of Philadelphia City Water soon!
