hair with different porosities...
anyone here have this issue? I dyed my hair red for many years and recently started henna so i have about 5 inches of "healthy" hennaed hair and from there to mid-back i have the very porous dry hair:( the color blends fine but my hair reacts differently to cg methods! I can't condition my roots with out flatness, but i need tons of conditioner for the lengths, and second day hair is hopeless. On a humid day the top frizzes less and doesn't really tighten up but the ends do. On a dry day the top fells plenty moisturized but the rest is drryyy. Anyone know of a good product for volume and moisture?

I'm just learning about this porosity thing. Is having low porosity hair make you more prone to split ends? I've been doing henna treatments, along with amla and brahmi to aid in strand protection. I recently stumbled on an all natural conditioner from KEYS called Mangrove Conditioner. It's a moisturizing conditioner with natural proteins from oils. I've found that my hair feels stronger yet moisturized afterwards and remains full. I mix the product with my other conditioner to make it stretch plus olive oil and castor oil that makes it more moisturizing (I do this with all of my deep conditioners.) If felt weird when putting it in "my hair" at least. But after washing it felt great. Look it up maybe this would help. I'm new to it and have used it only twice. But happy so far with it.

Hmmm...I won't be able to give you suggestions about products that pump up the volume because I don't have a problem with volume, but below are some of the products I have used for moisture:

Jessicurl Weekly Treatment
Aubrey Organics Island Conditioner
Curl Junkie Rehab Treatment
Curl Junkie Hibiscus and Banana Deep Fix Conditioner
EO Lavender and Aloe Conditioner
Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner (not CG, but does moisturize the hair)
