#TrapHairCare: What Does “Porosity” Mean In Hair Care?

According To Diane Bailey, Master Natural Hair Stylist & Shea Moisture Brand Ambassador, The Simplest Definition Of Porosity Is ” The Hairs Ability To Take In Moisture, Water, Color, Or Any Liquid”

Low Porosity

  • Cuticles are closed, so moisture does not enter easily / resistant to moisture.
  • Products sit on your hair.
  • Does not absorb hair color or treatments easily.
  • Water beads up on hair.
  • Hair takes a long time to dry.
  • Looks healthy but doesn’t have much elasticity or volume.

It’s Best To Use Grapeseed Oil To: Strengthen Hair Daily & With Conditioner. You Can Also Use Grapeseed Oil As Additional Heat Protection Due To It’s Ability To Withstand High Temperatures. (For Those Of You Natural Ladies That Don’t Mind Using A Little Heat On Your Hair)

Other Oils To Use For Maximum Protection/Growth:

  • ARGAN OIL
  • JOJOBA
  • APRICOT
  • SWEET ALMOND OIL
  • HEMP OIL
  • POMEGRANATE OIL

You Just Really Have To Figure Out What Products Work For Your Hair. What Works For Your Homegirl May NOT Work For You. And That’s Perfectly OKAYYY! ONCE You Find Out What Products/Essential Oils Your Scalp Loves; You Can Start To Enjoy Your Journey..

Me Personally, I’m Planning To Wear My Hair Out More. I’ve Purchased Head Wraps With Tribal Designs On Them And I Can’t Wait To Receive The Fabric! The Reason Why I Don’t Wear My Natural Hair Out Often Is My Protective Hairstyles Have Aided My Length Retention Drastically. I’m Lazy. Also, I Just Absolutely Adore The Companies That Want Me To Review Their Hair Products โ™€๐Ÿ˜˜ I’m Just Being Honest ๐Ÿ™Œ

Now Listen, Linda ๐Ÿ˜‚ I Have Low Porosity Hair. When I Finish Washing My Hair, My Shit Looks Like A Hot & Bothered Keith Sweat At One Of His Concerts In The 90’s.. Hunnnayy, I’m ‘Talkinbout’ Water Drippin’ Everywhere ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ™‡

I Usually Wash It With Conditioner And 10-15 Drops Of Peppermint. Once Completely Rinsed WITH COLD WATER, I Use A Method That I Will Discuss In Another Article From #TrapHairCare, And I Seal My Ends To Prevent Dry Split Ends..

High Porosity

  • Absorbs too much moisture, but is unable to retain it.
    Looks and feels dull and dry.
  • Generally damaged and over processed with torn cuticles (but not always)
  • Tangles easily because the cuticles get caught on each other.
  • Hair dries quickly.
  • Tends to be frizzy.

It’s Best To Use More Butters & Cremes To Keep Your Hair Moisturized For Maximum Growth. Often Times You Can Have Low Porosity Hair And Use A Small Amount Of Butters To Mix With Your Hair’s Favorite Oils. A Great Product To Use Is Organic Root Simulator Or Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. Other Products & Oils To Use For Maximum Protection/Growth:

  • CASTOR OIL
  • COCONUT OIL
  • OLIVE OIL
  • GLEAU ALL NATURAL MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL BLEND
  • ELASTA QP Mango Butter Curl Smoothie

    1. Shampoo Tends To Dry Out Our Hair. It Strips The Hair Of Natural Oils Needed For Growth. Try Washing Your Hair With Conditioner And Limiting Your Shampoo Washes To Once A Month. Possibly Switching To Another Essential Oil Will Help Your Scalp Stay Moisturized As Well! Drink Plenty Of Water.. Eat Leafy Green Vegetables Helps Too.. Try Jojoba, Avacodo, Or Peppermint Essential Oils And Check For Changes! See Which Oil Responds To Your Hair And Adore It! Lol

      Once Your Hair Is Washed Make Sure You’re Applying A Light Water Based Leave-In Condition (Quarter Size Of Hair Creme/Butter) With A Few Drops Of Your Oil Daily.. For Fellas, I Would Suggest You Get A “Du-Rag” or “Stocking Cap” For Bedtime To Keep In Your Hairs Nutrients. “Co-Wash” (Conditioner Wash) Your Hair Every 1-2 Weeks.. Shampoo Once A Month.. Always Moisture Hair Daily & You Should See A Difference. Thanks For Your Comment! I Can Always Count On Your Support!๐Ÿ’ฏ
