I have wavy, thick, dry and frizzy hair. Conditioners did tame my hair to a certain extent but not fully. My hair became very dry in winters in-spite of all the oiling and conditioning. It is then that I realized that hair needs external moisturizer just like our body in dry climate, so why can't a body moisturizer be used to hair as well??
Without further thinking, I just grabbed my favorite Bath and Body Works body lotion and applied to hair very lightly. I could see my rough hair softening immediately :)
I have browsed in the internet to know about any side effects that might be caused and was surprised to see that many people have already been using it and did not observe any damage being caused :)
Now, I have included body moisturizer in my hair care routine and simply loving it :)
- Never apply to scalp else it makes hair and scalp greasy.
- Use light weight moisturizers only but good moisturizers.
- Take only pea-sized amount.
- Not meant for styling or heat protection.
