You're saying the sulfates in shampoos make hair more porous. It this permanent to those strands or can that actually be repaired?
It's also interesting about long deep conditioner sessions. Can you point me to those articles?
When you talk about using coconut oil to reduce porosity and protect from protein loss, do you mean using it as a sealer after all other products are applied? Or do you mean using it in general to condition the hair?
I don't know if my hair is porous or not, but I'm starting to think it is. Gray hair tends to be porous anyway.
