High porosity

What is a high porosity hair type?

Our hair is made up of cuticles, high porosity hair has gaps and holes in the cuticles, which lead to quick moisture absorption but difficulty retaining it.

How to care for high porosity hair?

Because high porosity hair is so prone to dryness but absorbs products well, look for oils that can help seal the gaps in the hair cuticles and lock in moisture.

Some examples of oils that work best for high porosity hair include:

Shea Butter Oil: Offers intense moisture and helps seal the cuticles in high porosity hair.

Avocado Oil: Rich in nutrients and fatty acids, it helps repair and strengthen high porosity hair.
