To hydrate or moisturize?
Moisturizing and hydrating your hair are two very important treatments that can help keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. Although these two treatments are very similar, they do have a few crucial differences that you should know about before you commit to either one.
Moisturizing is essential for sealing the cuticle of your hair. Moisturizing treatments are done using products that are formulated to keep moisture in, while also adding a protective layer of oils and butters. By locking in the moisture, your hair stays soft and glossy. There are many benefits to moisturizing, including improved elasticity, fewer breakages, and less frizz.
On the other hand, hydrating is used to add moisture back into dry, brittle hair. This process involves replacing lost moisture by applying a rich, restoring product or serum. Hydrating your hair helps to soften, strengthen, and add shine. It is especially beneficial for those with dry and damaged locks, since it replenishes moisture and gives your hair an additional boost of hydration.
So, when it comes to moisturizing and hydrating your hair, it’s important to remember that they are two different processes. Both are beneficial to your hair, however, if you find that your hair is especially dry, dull, and brittle, then it’s probably best to opt for a hydrating treatment. This will help to keep your hair healthy and give it the extra TenderLove that it needs.😉
