Have Your Say: Light vs. Heavy SealantsWednesday, September 10, 2014
Are you a fan of light or heavy sealants for your hair?
Everyone's hair is different and reacts differently to certain oils. Some have fine hair; therefore, light oils such as Coconut oil, Grapeseed oil etc. are perfect for sealing the ends without weighing the hair down.
On the other hand, there are thicker hair textures that require something a little heavier, than the light oils, to lock moisture into their strands. I have dense, wiry, coarse strands. My hair craves a lot of moisture and heavier oils to prevent moisture from escaping my strands. Heavier moisturizing products have helped to minimize split ends. Heavy oils consist of Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil etc. Recently, I've fallen in love with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (dark green) as a sealant. It's very rich and slightly thick/heavy in consistency. It provides perfect coverage and intense shine. It's ability to lock in moisture is great and my hair remains moist and smooth. My ends love IT!!!
My question to you is, does your hair prefer Light or Heavy sealants? If so, what do you think is the reason? What oils are you currently using? Which consistency (light or heavy) allows you to retain the most moisture?
