Helpful tips on how to manage your porosity type of hair

May 9, 2016

Low Porosity HairLow porosity hair is prone to build-up from protein-rich deep conditioning products, which can leave it feeling stiff and straw-like.

  • Use protein-free daily conditioners with humectants such s glycerin or honey.

  • Use moderate heat. Use protein-free deep conditioning treatments under a hooded dryer, steamer or even a warm towel or shower cap, to help open up the tightly bound cuticle. This will help products better absorb and bind with the hair.

  • Always distribute products evenly throughout your hair making sure not to put too much on.

  • Apply products to damp, not drenched hair.

  • Use sulfate-free shampoo and rinses such as apple cider vinegar or baking soda treatment to rid your hair of product build-up.

Great oils and butters to use for low porosity hair

  • Shea butter

  • Jojoba oil

  • Coconut oil

  • Mineral oil

*Choose lighter, liquid-based products such as hair milks that won’t sit on your hair and leave it oily or greasy.

 

 

Normal Porosity Hair

  • Continue to do regular deep conditioning treatments to maintain good product absorption.

  • Proteins should not be included in your daily regimen.

High Porosity Hair

  • Use minimal heat. It’s best to air dry your hair.

  • Incorporate regular deep conditioning treatments into your hair care routine.

  • Rinse with cold water to seal the cuticle and prevent frizz.

  • Detangle gently with a wide-tooth comb to prevent hair loss and reduce hair breakage.

  • Finally, use leave-in conditioner, moisturizers and sealers to help seal in moisture.

  • Layering these products will help your hair hold on to the moisture you’re applying. (L.O.C Method)
