Types of Hair - Low Porosity πŸ’πŸ½

Genetics play a major role in hair chemistry. But that's another story.

Since you have Low Porosity Hair, it means that you have to take extra steps to make sure you take extremely good care of your hair. This also means that your hair is not able to move enough water to the shaft of hair.

Understanding low porosity hair means recognizing that the tightly bound cuticle layer with overlapping scales lays flat, making it challenging for moisture to penetrate the hair. Consequently, products tend to sit on the hair rather than being absorbed. Hydration is your mantra; you'll want to focus on moisturizing deeply and using heat to open up the cuticles slightly during treatments. Instead of heavy creams that can weigh your hair down, opt for lighter, liquid-based products. Incorporating ingredients like honey and glycerin can attract moisture to the hair, which can be beneficial for maintaining health and shine.
