So does oil actually seal in moisture? One of our favorite natural hair blogs that is no longer active but is still a wealth of hair science info is The Natural Haven. In one post (Can Moisture Be Sealed In) she sites a scientific study that shows hair that is treated with oil slows down evaporation of water better than hair that is not treated.
Hair types started as a way for naturals to classify what kind of curl pattern we have and to figure out what products work for us. Often when watching our favorite YouTubers we use hair types to asses if their product demo will work on our own hair.
But somewhere within that system we began to think of hair that was considered the coiliest or kinkiest as more difficult.
We recently did a chat with Dr. Isfahan Chambers-Harris, brand founder of Alodia Hair Care and a trained bio-medical scientist. During our conversation the question came up about whether the coronavirus (scientifically known as COVID-19) can survive in hair.
The world is on fire (literally) -- and we all feel helpless -- so of course it’s natural to want to indulge in the things that make us look and feel good. But sometimes all those bottles of products can make you feel a little guilty about your carbon footprint.
