Water is the most Beneficial Moisturizer for Natural Hair..so yes you can wash your hair everyday as long as you Co-Wash ( Conditioner Wash- washing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo). Shampoo should only be used when you develop buildup which can usually occur once a week to give your hair a clean slate.
Our two favorite Conditioners/ Leave in- Elucence Moisture Balance Conditioner is my favorite... All natural products, great leave-in as well. This product is hard to find and can be expensive for the amount of conditioner you get. Well Well worth it. You can purchase online at http://www.naturallycurly.com/.
For a cheaper Alternative ..... Herbal Essences Hello Hydration is a great alternative for Elucence when funds are low. This Products is not completely natural but it has many moisturizing benefits and no silicones or harmful alcohols. two thumbs up. great leave in as well. This product can be found at your local grocery store, cvs or walgreens.
Next Post ..... How do you keep the moisture in your hair???? Sealing your ends of course....

SO TRY AND GET ONE IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY.....
LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE DENMAN BRUSH!
**NATURALLY YAN TAN**
1.Type 1 Hair- Type 1 hair is straight with no discernible curl or wave pattern. This type of hair tends to get oily and is usually shiny.
Type 3 Hair- Type 3 hair has a more definite “S” pattern to it with the “S” being more tightly formed. It will typically be relatively soft and will have less shine than type 1 or 2 hair. It will straighten out or form ringlets when wet but will draw up into a curlier pattern when it dries. This hair type is typical of biracial (African and Caucasian mix) people and of Blacks of a more mixed heritage.
Type 4 Hair- Type 4 hair will have kinks and twists and possibly coils but does not form an “S” shape. It may be “L” shaped with bends in it. It may form tight coils or “O” shapes (not really the same as the “ringlets”formed by Type 3 hair. This type of hair generally doesn’t change shape much wet or dry. It can be wiry and usually is fragile. It tends to be drier than other hair types because the bends and twists not only provide points that are more fragile, they actually make it hard for the natural oil (sebum) produced by the scalp to reach the ends of the hair shaft. Because the cuticles do not lay flat on Type 4 hair, the hair tends to be less shiny than Types 1, 2 and 3 and people will often think natural Black hair is dry or dull looking. Most African-Americans have Type 4 hair, which is why this designation alone is not really super descriptive. It seems we are the ones most concerned with categorizing our hair and by this pretty crude system, most of us fall into basically the same category.
and if you are relaxed.. ( which we were)
Chemically Straightened Hair- Chemically Treated or Permed hair is a hair type we think we have to add. Perming the hair changes the natural structure of the hair creating its own hair type. It is going to be anywhere from a Type 2 to a Type 1 in terms of straightness (depending on the strength of the perm). In spite of the fact the hair shaft is slightly thinner due to the action of the perming chemicals, it might still be a relatively thick hair shaft. It will have more shine than natural hair because the cuticles lay more flat. But, it will tend to be dry.
This should help... So what type are you? I'm a 3 B 3C.. mixed in.. Tania is 3C all over ..soooo lucky.. post pics soon.
