After washing my hair, it takes a good 24 hours before my hair returns to a normal moisture level. The same goes for a relaxer. To help retain moisture I wear my hair in a protective style for a day after washing or any manipulation of my hair.
Apply Shelly's Hair Drink followed by Shelly's Hair Balm, then gather your hair in a bun or a protective style like this. In 24 hours, you'll have super soft, fully rehydrated tresses.
