How do you unlock moisture in low porosity hair?

Unlocking moisture in low porosity hair requires a combination of proper hair care techniques and the right products. Here are some tips to help unlock moisture in low porosity hair:

  1. Use a clarifying shampoo: A clarifying shampoo can help to remove product buildup and open up the hair cuticles, allowing moisture to penetrate the hair shaft.

  2. Apply heat: Applying heat can help to open up the hair cuticles and allow moisture to penetrate the hair shaft. Try using a hair steamer or sitting under a hooded dryer with a plastic cap on for 10-15 minutes after applying your deep conditioner or hair mask.

  3. Use a light leave-in conditioner: Look for a leave-in conditioner that is lightweight and can be easily absorbed into the hair. Avoid using heavy oils and butters that can weigh down the hair and make it difficult for moisture to penetrate.

  4. Apply products to damp hair: Apply your moisturizing products to damp hair to help them penetrate the hair shaft. If your hair is too dry, the products may sit on the surface of the hair and not be absorbed.

  5. Use the L.O.C. or L.C.O. method: The L.O.C. (liquid, oil, cream) or L.C.O. (liquid, cream, oil) method is a popular technique used to lock in moisture in low porosity hair. The idea is to layer products in a specific order to help lock in moisture. Start with a liquid, such as water or a leave-in conditioner, followed by an oil to seal in the moisture, and then finish with a cream to help keep the moisture locked in.
