Frizzy hair can be low, medium, or high porosity, as the cause of frizz can be due to a variety of factors. Frizz occurs when the hair cuticle is raised, and the hair strand is exposed to humidity, causing the hair to expand and become frizzy. This can be caused by damage to the hair cuticle, which can occur in all porosity types.
In low porosity hair, frizz can be caused by product buildup or insufficient moisture, as the tightly packed cuticle can make it difficult for products to penetrate the hair shaft. In high porosity hair, frizz can be caused by damage to the cuticle layer, which can make the hair more susceptible to humidity and moisture loss. In medium porosity hair, frizz can be caused by a combination of factors, including damage, product buildup, and insufficient moisture.
To manage frizz in any porosity type, it is important to use products that are specifically designed to hydrate and nourish the hair, and to avoid products that can cause buildup or weigh the hair down. Deep conditioning treatments and regular trims can also help to improve the health and appearance of the hair, reducing the likelihood of frizz.
