Moisturizing Ingredients to Look for in Hair Products

Hey Curlies,

About a month ago, I went to the Indianapolis natural hair meetup and we began to talk about ingredients. In any regimen, you need a balance of both protein and moisture. At the event I was given a few different moisturizing ingredients to look for and I also have come up with a few more that I would like to share.

Remember that the first five ingredients listed in a product are the ones that are contained most in that product. Here are some great ingredients to look for:

Here are some of the ingredients I learned about at the event. All of these ingredients (above and below)  are called Humectants which allow your hair to retain moisture.
These might seem very familiar to you. Below is the the link to a lists of these ingredients and others in their scientific or disguised form. Ever pick up a product and on the ingredient list are huge words that you don't understand? This lists will explain what each is.
