Is there a way to fix low porosity hair?

Yes, there are several ways to fix low porosity hair. Low porosity hair means that the cuticles of the hair shaft are tightly closed, which makes it difficult for moisture to penetrate and nourish the hair. Here are some tips to help improve the porosity of your hair:

  1. Use warm water: When washing your hair, use warm water instead of hot water. Warm water will help to open the hair cuticles, allowing moisture to penetrate the hair shaft.

  2. Clarify your hair: Buildup from hair products can create a barrier on your hair, preventing moisture from penetrating. Use a clarifying shampoo once a month to remove any buildup.

  3. Deep condition your hair: Use a deep conditioner that is specifically formulated for low porosity hair. Leave the conditioner on your hair for at least 30 minutes to allow it to penetrate the hair shaft.

  4. Use a protein treatment: Protein treatments can help to strengthen the hair and improve its porosity. Look for a protein treatment that is specifically formulated for low porosity hair.

  5. Use a leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner can help to moisturize your hair throughout the day. Look for a leave-in conditioner that is lightweight and won't weigh your hair down.

  6. Avoid using heat: Heat can further damage low porosity hair. Avoid using heat styling tools as much as possible. If you must use heat, use a heat protectant spray to protect your hair from damage.
