I have low porosity hair. I don't color it, heat style much, etc. Protein constricts the cuticle even further preventing even more moisture from entering. It gives me frizz. If anything my hair became even more less porous after pregnancy. It has never ever held moisture well unless I had my hair short. For some reason, my shorter curls always looked fabulous.
If I can't use oils or silicones...or glycerin...then what am I left with to moisturize my hair? The oils worked in the past...I mean my hair felt moisturized.
I live in a high dewpoint area...South Carolina.
