Hair normally has a moisture content of approximately
10%. If your hairís moisture content drops below this
level the key is to increase the hairís ability of
attract and retain moisture. This is accomplished by
Good ones have "humectants" that not only
replace lost moisture but actually attract moisture and
retain it in the cortex of the hair. Essential fatty
aids (EFAís) are great moisturizers. One of the best
and most cost effective essential fatty acids is
safflower oil. It is the kind you can buy to cook with.
It is rich in EFAís.
The scalp produces the best EFAís called sebum. The
problems is once the hair grows past the neck line or
does not have direct contact with the scalp the scalps
natural oils can not be utilized throughout the hair
You can manually replace the lost EFAís by:
Placing 1 or 2 drops of safflower oil in your
palms and rub them together.
There should only be enough to make your hands
"shine" in the light.
Carefully take your hair (while dry) and
"scrunch" the small amount of oil to the
ENDS first and work toward the scalp.
Leave this in your hair.
1-2 drops of safflower oil on dry hair is so
small, you wonít notice it is there.
Doing the above as often as necessary will ensure
your dry hair will have the proper amount of humectants
to attract and reatin moisture. The key is that a small
amount will go a long way.
