That stuff about how cold water as a final rinse reduces frizz? It also lays down the cuticle, which is horrible for lowly porous hair as it has a hard enough time getting moisture in.
Thank you! I was never, ever, ever going to do a cold water rinse because I am very cold natured and just couldn't see myself torturing myself that way. I suspected it would make little difference to my low porosity tresses anyway and you've just confirmed it.
Any opening my hair cuticles do during my shampoo process I close back down with aloe vera juice mixed in my LI. This works for me...
