In this blog, we will discuss your hair care routine for high porosity hair. Are you also curious about high porosity hair and are tired of using costly products? Have you also tried to use natural methods to fix your hair, and you don't get any results in the end?
So, Let’s begin with what high porosity hair is called and how you can cure them with my tips and tricks!
High Porosity Hair:
It's the most critical thing to know about your hair except its curl pattern. In terms of hair care routine, your porosity levels decide which products will perform best for you.
High porosity hair has open cuticles with gaps and holes, allowing it to absorb water and products easily. It also dries rapidly, leaving your hair dry, frizzy, and tangled. Harsh chemicals, dye or bleach, excessive heat, or harsh shampoos that peel the hair are all common causes of damage to this hair type.
So, the first thing that you have to change in your hair care routine is -
- Deep Conditioning.
This should be done every time you wash your hair. For 15 minutes, simply cover your hair with a plastic cap or a warm towel. When I use a deep conditioner, I generally leave it on overnight and then rinse it off in the morning.
Look for a thick deep conditioner like Natural Hair Moisturizer Pudding. This is an excellent product since it revitalises my hair and gives it a healthy glow.
If you use Natural Hair Moisturizer Pudding, then you don’t need to add any additional product such as a leave-in-conditioner.
Use Heavy products containing natural oils.
This will help to compensate for the lack of a protective layer by enhancing the sealing from butter or oil. Always check the product's label to determine if heavy oils like olive, castor, or avocado oil are present in it.
Our Deep Restoration Natural Hair Treatment which includes Olive oil and Shea butter helps hair repair breakage and split ends. Avocado butter and vitamins stimulate hair growth.
- Use butter and oils for sealing.
While your hair is soaking up water, kinds of butter and oils can help keep that moisture from leaving the air. Shea butter and olive oil are both thick and excellent moisturizers. Because olive oil is one of the few oils that can permeate the hair shaft, it would be an excellent choice for a sealant.
- Minimize heat styling products.
Since heat and style treatments can damage porosity hair, choose your hair care routine products wisely to help protect your hair. Hence, this is how I fixed my high porosity hair by changing my hair care routine. I hope these tips will also help you to improve your High Porosity Hair further.
How can you check if your hair is really High Porous?
By running a finger down a strand of hair, you may detect the porosity of your hair. Cuticles are open in hair with high porosity, making it feel rough and bumpy, whereas Low Porosity hair will feel smooth.
- Always wear a scarf or hat in sunny, windy, or cold conditions to keep your hair from getting damaged.
- Moisturize your hair periodically, paying specific attention to the ends, which are porous since they live for a longer time.
- Reduce the amount of heat you use, or use it at a lower temperature. Blowing or flat ironing your hair removes all of the moisture. Don't forget to use a heat protectant if you're going to use any heat styling product.
- Avoid dying your hair because you already know how harmful it is for it. Stay away from bleaching! It's worse than dying because it removes your hair from its natural colour.
