Caring for natural hair tips for low porosity hair

Use cleansing shampoos

Low porosity hair also gets product build-up more easily. For that reason, you want to use cleansing shampoos such as our Clarifying Charcoal Shampoo Bar. It's cleansing but won't dry your hair out either. Cleansing your hair will also help open your cuticles.

Caring for natural hair with light products

You want to stay away from heavy products, so I recommend Detoxifying Clay Cleanser as your conditioner. It's lubricating enough to give your hair slip for detangling and will also condition your hair, but won't close the cuticle. You still want your hair to absorb all those great styling products.
