Has anybody tried...

Roux Porosity Control shampoo and the corrector & conditioner? I know that it is used for color treated (which I do), permed and relaxed hair. I was wondering if it would help with all porosity issues. The corrector and conditioner has a ph of 4.5.

Low porosity, Fine/Medium Texture, S-Curls

Co-wash: VO5 Tea Therapy
Rinse Out: Garnier Sleek 'n Shine (subject to change)
Styler: Long Aid Curl Activator

Dislikes: Proteins (except occasional Silk protein), Cones, Oils
I may be wrong but I think it's for people with high porosity issues. Chemicals tends to cause that. I know why I was relaxed my hair it was like I could never put enough moisturizer in my hair. It sucked.

Thanks for the info ladies. I thought that it was for high porosity due to use after chemical treatments, but a girl can hope....

You don't list your products or hair properties. My hair prefers the more natural products. Right now, it's a little dry because I got a haircut/highlight today(it will be fine tomorrow when I wet it and use a rinse out.) My hair is in such great shape, the shampoo guy refuses to use conditioner--says that my hair doesn't need it (he just doesn't "get it") I use really rich, moisturizing products all of the time and a lot of protein. I never feel the need to DT because the products moisturize me enough.

I don't really DT during the summer but I need something during the winter.

I didn't find the KCKT moisturizing enough for my hair. You may want to change to something that's richer--Curl Junkie, Marie Dean, Kozama?? You may want to DT to add some moisture.

my hair is Low-Normal porosity I can't use KCKT as a rinse out this time of year. i detangle with it if needed but follow up with a heavier conditioner.
2B waves/ fine-med texture/normal porosity( I think?) trying to figure out my protein needs

AOGPB, SS Caitlins, Garnier Body Boost Condish
CJ Daily Fix or KC Come Clean
CJ Curl Fix is true LOVE
Love all SS products

Thank your for the help and suggestions! I am going to take a look at the websites for the suggested products.

eta: @Kathymack, I have read great things about Curl Junkie Aloe Fix and Curl Junkie Curl Assurance LI. I noticed that you use their products. Which one would you recommend?

I am not sure if you mentioned it in the MD thread. I didn't get to read all of the pages. I appreciate all of the help. I will be making a decision and placing a order this weekend. I did a DT with some honey added as Ellepixie mentioned in one of the other low porosity threads. I will be doing another this weekend.

Also, kathymack's faves are pretty close to mine, too. Daily Fix, Strengthening Conditioner, and Repair Me are all in my routine regularly as well as Aloe Fix Lite and Curl Queen. I also use CoffeeCoco Curl Creme and CoffeeCoco Curl Creme Lite. But, I use them more often in the higher dew points.
