Dry as dry can be.

My hair is dry.

Let that sink in for a bit. I am not just talking about mildly dry. I think it feels like a dry forest. One match near my head and FLOOM!  Forest fire.
I don't know why it keeps drying out like this. I am using a moisturising conditioner and shampoo. I used olive oil on my hair last night, hoping to seal in some type of moisture. Any ideas anyone?
  • i talked to one of the stylists at my salon last night- she has BEAUTIFUL natural hair. she suggested using morrocan oil brand shampoo and conditioner with a deep condition once a week and for really bad days their intense curl cream. her hair is GORGEOUS. she also suggested the site http://www.mixedchicks.net for tips and suggestions- said it’s one of her favorite sites. hope this helps!

  • Thanks Sherry. I googled morrocan oil, and it looks fairly interesting. I am going to have to check it out. I went to mixed chicks, and I am going to tell you, I was a bit intimidated. They are mixed and have these gorgeous bouncy curls. I on the other hand am full African American, and have these eensy weensy tiny curls. I might give some of their products a try though.
