What is low porosity?
Hair with low porosity has compact cuticles and resists moisturization. It is the reason why low porosity hair has difficulty remaining hydrated even after a deep care.
Ways to tell you have low porosity
- Your hair is always dry no matter how often you moisturize
- Water beads up on your hair
- Your hair takes a long time to dry
- Your hair is very resistant to dye and other chemicals
- Your hair looks healthy but doesn’t have much elasticity or volume
- Products sit on your hair
How to take care of low porosity hair?
Use a pre poo treatment: It is used as an extra step in natural hair care regimens. Cover the hair with a plastic cap for 30 minutes to maintain heat and allow the light oils to penetrate even deeper.
Clarify your hair: Low porosity hair is prone to build-up from protein-rich deep conditioning products. Use a clarifying shampoo to remove the build up and give your hair a fresh start.
Use a conditioner containing only light vegetable oils: Light vegetable oils are capable of penetrating the tightest cuticles of low porosity hair.
Moisturize daily: Use water-based moisturizers with aloe vera juice and light oils in it.
