Since Monat has come out with yet another new product and I was confused at first what was the difference between the too, I decided to do some research and I just had to share this with you too.  Because if I was confused some others maybe are too. Especially if your new to the concept of  healthy hair.  I never gave my hair really one thought before I started my business about hydration or moisturizing.   As long as it looked good to me I was blind to the rest of my hair needs.   So let me share with you what I have found in regards to this topic.

Imagine a plant growing in a pot. What would happen if you only spray water on the leaves every day and never poured water into the dirt for the roots to absorb? The plant would shrivel up and die right?

With that illustration in mind, let’s now examine the definitions of Hydration and Moisture as it pertains to our hair.

What’s the Difference?

Hydrating the Hair– The process of using humectants, proteins, amino acids and critical vitamins that penetrate the hair fiber infusing and improving the absorption of water and nutrients so that the hair holds and retains moisture.

To supply water to (a person, for example) in order to restore or maintain fluid balance.
Each pore on the surface of the skin is an opening to a canal called a follicle. The follicle also contains a hair and an oil gland (sebaceous gland). The oil gland keeps the skin lubricated and feeds the hair strand that it is attached to.

Increasing your water intake will not only make you feel better, but it will also hydrate your hair from within which is where your hair comes from.
If you are not drinking enough water, no doubt, you have dry, brittle, lifeless hair.
Hydration has to begin inside of your body.

Moisturizing the Hair– The process of using butters and oils to coat the OUTER surface of the hair fiber sealing and locking down the hair shaft so moisture can not get in or out of the fiber.

Water or other liquid diffuses in a small quantity as vapor, within a solid, or condenses on a surface.
This is what is being done when you spray water on a plant or as it pertains to this topic, on your hair. Spraying water or water based products on your hair is not enough to support a healthy head of hair.

Moisturizing your hair every day is pointless if your hydration is not up to par. Once the water has evaporated you are left with the same strands of lifeless hair.

Simply Put….FIRST you HYDRATE the hair to penetrate, absorb & nourish the hair from within. THEN you seal and lock down the hair shaft with a MOISTURIZER to keep the moisture in the hair.  Moisturized hair is happy hair.

So what does this mean for your current hair regimen?

If your hair feels chronically dry, wonky, brittle, rough, or just not like itself, and your products aren’t working (even spritzing water and and other concoctions doesn’t help), your issue may be hydration levels in your hair.

This brings us to what products should you use to hydrate your hair and what product should I use to moisturize your hair.
