Should You Seal Your Natural Hair?

Check the deets!

HG Sealants/Pomades in this video are:
Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade
HerbNLife ButterFly
B.A.S.K. Palm Tapioca Deluxe Hair Cream (also a moisturizer)

HG Oils mentioned in this video include:
Carol’s Daughter Hair Elixir
Carol’s Daughter Hair Balm
Jojoba Oil
Rice Bran Oil
Emtage Silktage Serum (Mainly used for blowing out/straightening)

Benefits of Sealing Hair include:
– Moisture retention
– Protecting your hair from the elements
– Decreasing friction on your ends
– Decreasing breakage
– Smoothing ends
– Lubricating/softening hair
– Split end prevention
– Single strand knot prevention

Also, remember to moisturize before you seal – oils and pomades (unless it’s water-based like my B.A.S.K.) do not **provide** moisture to your hair, they can only help you hold onto the moisture you already have. That’s why I seal my wet hair, even if I demonstrated on dry hair hair. I will say though, after I put the pomade on my hair…it definitely softened it up a bit and it smelled so good! Yums. 🙂
