Help! My hair is dry!

Hi everyone! My hair is sucking up any kind of moisturizer I put in it. Any suggestions for a nice, heavy moisturizing conditioner? I am still LOVING my hair cut which is a good thing, but I have to admit that I am getting bored – I really want to color my hair, but I am going to fight the urge and just wait until I am completely natural before doing that. Also, I have discovered that I can no longer roller set my hair; I have way too much new growth. I tried to do so a couple weeks ago and the result wasn’t anything to write home about. So I am back to blow drying and flat ironing it. At night I have been rolling it on hard, pink rollers and in the morning I wrap it up while I take a shower, comb it out and go. Every once and a while I have to re-flat iron the back b/c it gets pretty kinky J. So yeah that is pretty much it. Nothing else really to report. I am still truckin’ along and not really getting fed up with my hair quite yet. So stay tuned and Happy Holidays!

Congratulations and best wishes on your journey, Soror.

Have you considered two-strand twists while you wait on more new growth?

Hi Soror! I'm actually getting my hair braided in a couple weeks until I can cut off the rest of the relaxed ends. It's getting even harder to conceal the two diff't textures! Thank you for the suggestion!

I'm doing the natural thing too, via dreads that I have braided into cornrows up into a ponytail. I have the same problem with dry as a desert hair all the time. Soaks up anything I put on it like a sponge. What I have found that keeps the moisture a bit longer is either spritzing it with S Curl moisturizer spray, or Carefree Curl moisturizer spray, and then wrapping it in a scarf for a few hours. If you happen upon something else that's good, let me know. I'm always on the lookout...
Good luck on your natural. It ain't easy, I know.
