How do you unlock moisture in low porosity hair?

To unlock moisture in low porosity hair, you need to use techniques and products that can penetrate the hair shaft and allow moisture to be absorbed. Here are some tips to help you unlock moisture in low porosity hair:

  1. Use a clarifying shampoo: As mentioned earlier, low porosity hair tends to have buildup, which can prevent moisture from penetrating the hair shaft. Use a clarifying shampoo to remove buildup and allow moisture to penetrate.

  2. Use heat: Heat can help to open up the hair cuticles and allow for better absorption of moisture. You can use a hair steamer or a hot towel to apply heat to your hair during conditioning.

  3. Use lightweight products: Heavy products can weigh down low porosity hair and prevent moisture from penetrating. Use lightweight products such as leave-in conditioners, oils, and moisturizers.

  4. Use humectants: Humectants such as glycerin, honey, and aloe vera can attract moisture to the hair and help it to retain moisture.

  5. Apply products on damp hair: Apply your products on damp hair after washing and conditioning. Damp hair is more receptive to moisture than dry hair.

  6. Use a plastic cap: After applying your products, cover your hair with a plastic cap to trap in moisture and allow it to penetrate the hair shaft.
