Here's What I Use to Style My Low Porosity Hair

4 products my low porosity curly hair regimen swears by.

Having low hair porosity is such a beautiful struggle.

Low porosity hair entails that it is difficult for your hair to absorb moisture. The outer layer of my hair is flat, which in turn makes my curls appear shiny. This type of hair porosity is usually considered to reflect healthy hair, although that is not necessarily true.

While it can be quite challenging due to the investment in time and money, I would argue that the results of our wash days last longer since moisture does not leave the hair as quickly as it does in medium to high porosity hair. Here are the products that help me maximize my low porosity.

1. A water-based leave-in conditioner

When using these types of leave-in conditioners I prevent my hair from becoming greasy. It also decreases product build-up, which allows me to have fewer wash days. My favorite water-based leave-in conditioners are DevaCurl B-Leave-In Conditioner and ApHogee Curlific! Moisture Rich Leave-in.

2. A moisturizing cream

Using a cream contributes beautifying my curls with moisture. For me, it also helps to shape and style my low porosity hair and contribute to the definition of your curls. My favorites are Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter and the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Curl Defining Cream.

3. A curly jelly

Curly hair is often drier than straight hair, but since it does not have the ability to absorb ingredients easily as medium or high porosity, it tends to get easily weighed down and look greasy. That is why I stopped sealing my hair with oils and instead, use a jelly to define my curls. My favorite from Camille Rose Naturals also adds a natural sheen and helps me hair retain moisture.

4. The Denman Brush

For me, the Denman Brush is close to being indestructible--I bought mine in April 2015 and it is still alive. This brush makes the detangling process much easier, because it grabs every knot and makes it disappear. Besides, it also makes your curls much more defined.
