My porous hair's HG

Like Tree4Likes

My mom, right after I washed my hair, would apply Pink Lotion to my hair and then mineral oil. That kept my hair really moisturized. I'm tempted to go back to it but I don't know.
Do you find a difference between MO and other oils, such as jojoba?

For me Curl Junkie deep fix is a really HG conditioner for the summer. I use it as a RO and as a leave-in.

Hairveda Busy Izzy gets buttered up
Botanical Spirits Hydrating spritz
NBD Cosmetics Nectar leave-in conditioner (on my 3rd bottle)
Brown Butter Beauty sweet detangling milk with added AVJ to adjust the pH.
NBD Cosmetics Miracle moisture hair cream.


Still looking for a deep conditioner that doesn't make my hair feel like I rinsed it in bleach. Yep, that's a pH problem with my hair.

Off to buy NBD avocado/honey damage repair conditioner

I find that my highly porous hair loves sodium lactate, lactic acid, sodium pca and keratin. If products have at least one of those ingredients in them, 1/2 the battle is won in maintaining moisture.
I personally love to put just plain old coconut ook underneath my leavein and stylers, i put quite a bit so it feels a little greasy when just applied, but my hair seems to drink it, cos after 2 hours or so, there's no greasy feel left, just soft and shiny curls. If my hair starts to feel dry on second or third day hair, I just reapply but add less than first day because it seems to not "get in" the hair as good when applied on top of other stuff some how. But maybe that's because of the products I use
I wonder about mineral oil as well. I use castor oil on the ends of my hair and it works great. Havent had any buildup but I only scrunch it on the ends.
This may sound stupid...but what section is the mineral oil in? I can't seem to find it.
