High porosity hair can be one of the most challenging hair porosities. The upside of this hair type is how eagerly the hair absorbs moisture but the downside…it can lose moisture just as quickly as it gains it. Many times women with high porosity hair have damaged hair from high heat usage, harsh chemicals, or harsh products that may strip your hair of its essential oils.  

Because highly porous hair can also lose moisture easily, it's important to use leave-in conditionersmoisturizers, and sealers. Layering these products will help your hair hold on to the moisture you're giving it. You can even follow up with a heavy hair butter to help fill the gaps in your damaged cuticles and further protect your hair from losing too much moisture.

Some curlies who use chemicals (color, texturizers) can attest that your hair can take a beating from it. It’s time to get our hair back in shape and smooth out the rough edges so we can get back to gorgeous tresses. Don’t get all tangled up in worry on what to do because there are several products and DIY remedies to keep that cuticle down and help those damaged strands.
