Product Ingredients for High Porosity Hair
What ingredients must be in your hair products to help your high porosity hair, and in what order?
Here's my list:
Conditioner (can come after water, herbal TEA's or aloe juice)
DC- Behentrimonium Methosulfate and/or Cetearyl Alcohol, another fatty alcohol such as Cetyl, butylene Glycol.
PC- The protein must be after water, then everything else.
Shampoo and Co-Wash-No citrus fruit extracts or oils unless they're toward the end of the list! Otherwise, those ingredients dry out my hair.
Leave-in- (after water)-Glycerin and/or Propylene Glycol, two fatty alcohols/acids
Styling aid-No set order, depends on product!
Mod CG-Naturally Highly Porous and Dry SPRING REGIMEN-This list is not exhaustive...
