EXPLAIN LOW POROSITY HAIR ONE MORE TIME, PLEASE!
By Alexa Santory
We know that everyone’s hair is different and requires different levels of attention. One thing is for sure though: curly hair usually has the insatiable desire to be the center of attention. Even more so, curly hair with low porosity requires so much attention, it can be exhausting to even take care of. Worry not, friends. Today, we’re going to help you understand low porosity hair and how to get that moisture retention back for good!
INTENSE FENUGREEK REGENERATION HAIR MASK
This mask is awesome for invigorating hair growth and strengthening hair follicles. It’s rich in vitamins A, C, folic acid, and riboflavin, as well as minerals like copper, potassium, zinc, and iron. Fenugreek, aloe vera oil, pumpkin, and marshmallow root work hard to create slip, prevent breakage, deeply moisturize, and increase the overall health of the hair!
ARE THERE ANY HAIR TYPES THAT USUALLY HAVE LOW POROSITY HAIR?
Low porosity hair isn’t exclusive to one specific hair type. Porosity and hair type are mostly determined through genetics and oftentimes go hand in hand. In terms of texture, though, the curlier and kinkier your hair is, the more dense it is. The density of your hair determines how much moisture is being absorbed. If you think your hair is low porosity, pay attention to how it reacts to water. When wetting your hair in the shower, does it take a long time for it to truly get saturated? Do you find the products aren’t truly doing their job and moisturizing your hair? When you do the float test, does the strand sit right on top of the water? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you probably have low porosity hair.
