Hair Moisture Secrets: Curl Activator
Initially 10ish years ago when I first went natural, curl activator was great for short hair. My hair does not form ordered clumped up curls, so this is not what I used it for; it was a moisturiser and styler for me.
However when my hair got longer, it was a real hindrance because the high glycerin content and water made my hair shrink and this did not help in styling or handling hair.
Fast forward to 2013 and I have rediscovered that all I need to do is use less and spreading well. Borrowing my own tip of the coconut oil fingertip tip (haha how many times can you say tip in a sentence), I have found that I can use curl activator without it causing my hair to shrink.
The softness is incredible and it lasts for days! I think if you are struggling for a moisturiser or if you have previously used glycerin and didn't like it, try out the fingertip tip!
For more information on glycerin (the active ingredient in curl activator), see this previous post.
