One of My Favourite Moisturizers - Scurl No Drip Curl Activator! | Relaxed Hair |

So I get a lot of questions about my relaxed hair, products and healthy hair tips/advise in general, but out of all the hair questions I get, I’m frequently asked:

Well, there are several moisturizers that I keep in rotation depending on what my hair is craving and my desired style at the time. But I’d have to say, one of my favourite moisturizers of all time would be Scurl No Drip Curl Activator and lately I've been using Keracare Essential oils instead of Jojoba oil to seal. Don't get me wrong, I still love and use Jojoba oil to seal but Scurl with Keracare Essential oil is a Bomb combo!

If you’ve been following my blog/my hair journey for a while, you know that Scurl has been a staple of mine from the very beginning; however, once the formula changed (back in 2012/2013), I slowly stopped using it. I felt as though my hair stopped responding to the new formula ie. due to the argan oil, olive oil and fragrance.  My hair felt dry and stringy. I was so disappointed - to say the least. Now fast forward to 2017/2018, I revisited my beloved moisturizer and we hit it off. Not sure if they changed the measurements/ratio of the ingredients but my hair has fallen back in love with Scurl No Drip - the new formula! With this moisturizer, my hair retains moisture perfectly and it softens my new growth when I'm 10-12 weeks post relaxer.

So as I mentioned before, Keracare Essential Oils is new in my regimen.  I’ve been using it as a sealant and I just adore it because it's packed with stellar oils like castor oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil, just to name a few. As soon as I apply a small amount over my moisturizer, my hair softens immediately. It locks in moisture right away and imparts shine and smoothness to my strands. It quickly became a favourite of mine and is comparable to jojoba oil.

Now, this moisturize and seal combo has been working for me and my relaxed hair for a while. A few people have told me that “Scurl is not formulated for relaxed hair, it's formulated for natural hair and you should stop using it” Well, to put it simple, I use what works for me, my relaxed hair, and my texture. This moisturizer helped me retain length and keep my new growth soft. It's loaded with ingredients that I love ie. Glycerin, Panthenol, Stearalkonium chloride, etc. which all help to provide moisture and softness to the hair. Too, if it ain’t broke why fix it?! Just because it may be marketed to “natural hair” doesn’t mean it won’t work for my relaxed hair. And, if it works for me, why should I stop? We have to start thinking outside of the box and start looking at ingredients for proper moisturizing properties rather than labels. 

I typically moisturize and seal nightly - if not every other night. I moisturize and seal in sections (1-2 pumps/section for a total of 5/6 sections) to ensure every area is covered. It doesn’t make my hair “wet” or greasy. I use these products on air dried hair - only! I wouldn't use this moisturizing combo on flat ironed hair as it could revert my sleek flat ironed look. Where styling is concerned, Scurl works perfectly to lock in moisture when wearing protective and low manipulation styles. 

Why I use Scurl:
- it penetrates my strands with moisture
- zero protein
- it’s light and non greasy
- affordable and easy to find in stores
- has a spray feature which allows me to moisturize my roots when relaxer stretching
- softens my hair and new growth
- great for protective styles

I do have other moisturizers that I keep in rotation, but Scurl and I have history so I don't think we'll part ways anytime soon!
