Last video we talked about how dry hair and moisturized hair don't mean what we thought! Your friendly neighborhood real life Rapunzel is here with the hair science to help you on your hair journey. I've dug through even more peer-reviewed journals, notes from my trichology certification courses, and hair science textbooks to get you all the best scientific information on dry hair and hair moisturizing, and today I'm answering all of your questions about dry hair, moisturized hair, hydrating hair, and basically everything you guys kept asking in the last video.
Last time we discussed the truth about hygral fatigue, protein overload natural hair, moisture overload, balancing protein and moisture in your hair, and what it actually means to have dry hair. Today we'll go more into terms you hear in skincare like moisturizing and hydrating, and we'll even talk about skincare terms like humectants, occlusives, and emollients get pulled into haircare (even though they really make more sense in skincare).

This past year we've been busting hair myths with science not just to help me on my natural hair journey, but more importantly, to help you guys on your hair journeys. Whether you want waist-length natural hair, hip-length hair, hair to the floor, or just want to learn about hair and maybe keep yours a little healthier, hope this helps you see how to look at "hair moisturizer" treatments and "dry hair" so you can reach all your hair goals!

Credentials? I'm not a hair scientist, but I get my information from them. My sources primarily come from hair science textbooks and lectures from hair researchers. I will cite studies from scientific journals, but unless you have science education and background, it's important to get extra context from books, lectures, and experts to avoid misinterpreting them. I also have a Master of Science in Marketing that focused on Consumer Research and Statistics, and I recently earned my Hair Practitioner Certification from the International Association of Trichologists.
