    Default Need serums/lotions/pomades for 4C hair

    I used bentonite clay on my hair as shampoo, and I like how it makes my hair looks weighty and it makes my curl pattern come out more. What pomades/lotions/serums do that for 4C hair as an every day use?


    Extra info: I did big-chop 20 months ago. Ive been wearing protective styles to grow out my hair

    Hi Nn3ka,

    Are you keeping your hair moisturized? That's the first thing you need to do. Bentonite clay can be good but it can also be drying because it will strip out your natural oils, so be aware of that. Anything that contains a butter as a first ingredient (shea, aloe, mango etc) will give your hair some weight and protection from drying out. Try using a little oil on your hair while it's damp, then use the butter pomade over the top of that. For extra hold, a mouse will usually hold your coils in place. But you will always experience a degree of shrinkage as your hair dries - that's why it is important to keep moisture in there by sealing your strands.

    have you tried herbal remedies such as shea butter cream, fresh aloe vera gel or castor oil? I'm in the same boat as far as trying to keep my hair moisturized as my hair is VERY thick and eats up moisturizer quick so I have to constantly moisturize my hair otherwise it feels like I never did.

    I did a A LOT of research and found certain things that are all natural (meaning it's NOT processed or man0-made but comes from the natural environment) that have been proven to work for my hair.

    So I started making my own hair creams out of shea butter and using aloe vera gel (the inside of the aloe vera plant) to deep condition and moisturize my hair and it actually works. I have actually seen progress and my hair is more manageable too.

    I started my own YouTube channel showing how I made and used these products if you're interested in seeing it. My YouTube name is Holistic Beauty RN.

    I hope this helps and feel free to ask me questions-we're in this together!
