Moisturizing/Sealing Hair

August 2017 NATURAL HAIR CHALLENGE: Protect Ya Ends!

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I believe in protecting your ends to retain length. Usually I seal my hair with some type of oil, but today I thought of something different: What if I sealed my ends with a silicone serum (heat protectant)? Previously I had been skeptical to try this because I feared silicone build-up, but my cleansing conditioner (DevaCurl Decadence No Poo) removes silicones just fine!

So for the next month, I am going to use a silicone serum when I style my wash and go on my ends. Currently, I am using Form Beauty Protect because the ingredients – argan oil is the fourth ingredient (after a ton of cones of course). What am I looking for? Any noticeable differences in hair appearance and thickness – thicker ends perhaps, or a decrease in single strand knots and split ends. Check out this video for more information:
