3 Attachment(s)
Hallo curlies,
I have 3c hair which is highly porous and have low elasticity. So it quickly looks like a "pooof" when it dries.

So i need every tip i can get from you sistercurlies:)
What do exactly you do to minimize porocity and get welldefined and soft curls??
Its useful to know the following when you answer:
-your hairproperties
-your hairtype
-your hairregime
-hairproducts you use

Here are some pictures of my hair: Attachment 36647Attachment 36648Attachment 36649

Such pretty hair! My properties and products are in my signature.

Coconut oil is king for absorbing and reducing porosity, you can use it within a conditioner or as a pre-wash on dry hair or you can add oil and/ or aloe vera to your regular gel (DIY Ecostyler custard)

The other issue is to use enough leave in conditioner, try using more than you think your hair can handle.

Products at a pH that respects the hair can help reduce frizz by encouraging the cuticle to lay flat, two lines that consider this are As I Am and Komaza Care, nice ingredients too.
