YOUR HAIR HAS LOW POROSITY. Your hair doesn't easily allow moisture to be absorbed into your hair shaft, and it's probably prone to product build up. Use lighter products to keep your hair from getting limp. Products that are too heavy and used in excess, can weigh your hair down. Avoid products with low pH (like apple cider vinegar), as they make the cuticles contract - and worsen your hair's inability to absorb moisture. Steam your hair or use your body heat by deep conditioning with a shower cap to allow the hair cuticle (outer layer of the hair) to lift and allow moisture to penetrate the hair when deep conditioning. Also try the Moisturizing Treatment at HAIRTURAL studio.
YOUR HAIR HAS NORMAL POROSITY - YOU ARE HAIR GOALS! Your hair cuticles absorb and retain adequate moisture to keep your hair healthy and easy to manage.
YOUR HAIR HAS HIGH POROSITY. It has porous hair cuticles (outer layer of your hair) and is not able to retain moisture; it easily absorbs moisture, and easily loses the moisture. It's vulnerable to damage , so handle with care. Avoid products with high pH (hair dyes, relaxers), as they damage the cuticles, causing them to lift or separate ... worsening your hair's inability to retain moisture. Physical damage to the hair cuticle can also be caused by combing, tight pulling, and blow drying. Use thick-consistency, creamy products to help give your hair sheen and lock in moisture. Also use protein-based products (like the JOYE product range available at Autum) to strengthen the hair shaft so it can retain the moisture.
