This year has been my hair's driest year ever! I've lost the  battle of balancing between allowing my locs to settle and maintaining moisture. I follow a wide variety of natural hair enthusiasts and draw inspiration from their tried and true hair methodologies and attempt to adjust them to my hair type and style. After watching a video by Naptural85, I decided I needed to work on two things: protective styling and moisture. I wonder if my sisterlocks can benefit from protective styling and I know moisture is a good thing. So over the next couple of weeks I will be dabbling in aloe vera juice (and other moisturizers), styles that protect my ends, light hair oils to seal in moisture.
