High Porosity

If you have high porosity hair, it means that water, oils, and other types of products can be easily absorbed by your hair. On the flip side, because your hair is highly porous, it may not be able to retain moisture as well as other types of hair.


1. Protein treatments

Incorporating protein treatments in your regimen is important for high porosity hair to gain strength and not break as frequently

2. Deep conditioning

This should be done following every wash. Remember to slather on generous amounts and heat it up!

3. Sealing with butters or oils

Butters and oils can help seal in the moisture that your hair soaks up without releasing it back to the air.

 

Key: Heavy products will reinforce your sealing from the butter or oil and help compensate for the protective layer that's missing. Keep the pH of your hair in the right range to avoid the cuticle staying open.
