There's nothing more overwhelming than trying to figure out how to keep your natural hair moisturized. The truth is...natural hair needs a regiment that introduces moisture and retains moisture to the hair. Every product and technique should do one of two things: add moisture to your natural hair or retain/seal in moistures. Below are the basics of building a moisturizing natural hair regimen.
Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. Eat lots of of fruits and Vegetables Take Hair Vitamins Moisturize your natural hair from the inside out. Your whole body will thank you. Pre-poo with olive oil, coconut oil and a tad of Banana Slip Detangler. Clarify/detox with Good Earth Mud Mask once every two weeks. Clarifying/detoxing lifts dirt, excess products and other adverse debris. By deep cleaning your hair and scalp you’re helping your natural hair grow. Water is the best and most effective moisturize. Use water-based hair products especially conditioners. Co-wash with Apple Cleansing by Terra Veda Organix your hair at every 3-4 days. Deep Condition weekly with a product designed to penetrate the hair shaft like Quinoa & Green Tea Deep Conditioner by Terra Veda Organix.
Moisturize 2-4 times a week or more if necessary by adding some type of water or water based product to your hair & scalp. Curl-Aid Herbal Spritz by Terra Veda Organix is great for daily moisturizing. You drink water and moisturize your skin daily so why should your hair be any different. Apply leave in products like Krazy 4 Coconut & Okra by Terra Veda Organix from root to tip. Use the raking method or praying hands method to evenly throughout hair. Avoid products with harsh ingredients that coat the hair vs. absorb into the hair such as mineral oil, petroleum & etc. Use natural products or products with natural ingredients to seal in moisture from water and smooth the hair shaft such as shea butter, coconut oil and other nutrient rich oils/butters. Sweet Georgia Peach Butter by Terra Veda Organix is excellent for sealing moisture in your hair. Use the LOC METHOD- simply sealing in each layer of product to add moisture to your hair. LOC stands for “Liquid”, “Oil”, and “Cream”. This is the order of which you apply your products to clean hair (L) Curl-Aid Herbal Spritz, (O) Sweet Georgia Peach Butter, (C) Krazy 4 Coconut Condish. Cover hair with a satin scarf/bonnet or sleep on a satin pillow case while sleeping.

I decided to try the suggested Terraveda products mentioned in the article for LOC and it worked! I never would have thought to put those particular products to use in that order I would have used the crazy for coconut condish after the Spritz and the peach butter last. Please keep the product hints coming thanks!
