Low porosity natural hair is a type of hair that can dry very fast and need moisture. If you do not know how to get moisture inside your hair strands, your hair will be dry every time. So today I want to share techniques to achieve very moisturized, soft and shiny natural hair.
4 Steps To Moisturize Low Porosity Natural Hair
Step 1 : Prepoo
Prepoo is a great treatment to do before washing your hair. It deeply nourishes your hair strands, and prevents hair swelling. This prepoo contains also in addition to babassu oil, avocado oil, and olive oil great ingredients for hair growth as : garlic, onion, ginger, pumpkin seed, coffee, lavender, frankincense, and grapefruit. Using this twice per month, it’s so crucial to retain moisture and hair growth. Apply on the scalp first then on the length of the hair. Let sit for 1hr minimum, if not more like 6hr or 8hr.
Step 2: Cleansing
Hibiscus and Olive Oil Moisturizing Shampoo
This free sulfate natural shampoo is very very gentle on your hair stand. It will clean hair without stripping your natural oil. Only apply this to your scalp and massage it. The shampoo contains Hibiscus to stimulate hair growth and strengthen hair.
Step 3 : Deep treatment
Deep conditioning your natural hair or curly low porosity hair is beneficial. The hair needs moisture, so doing a treatment weekly or biweekly will not only make your hair strong, but soft, shiny, hydrated, and long.
This conditioner contains babassu oil which is an alternative to coconut oil. So it will deeply treat, nourish and moisturize the hair from the inside out and let it soft , not harsh like coconut oil does. In addition it contains avocado oil, olive oil, and brazil nut oil.
Step 4 : Moisture & Hydrate
The last step is styling, but before styling, you need to hydrate your hair. Use a leave-in conditioner on wet hair to have the best results, especially if you are doing a wash and go hair style. You can also follow with a lightweight non sticky oil on top of the leave -in (optional) if needed. This leave-in already contains oils, so if you have very thick and coarse hair, use the oil. A gel or custard can be used as well according to your hairstyle. This leave-in conditioner is lightweight, and very moisturizing. It penetrates low porosity hair easily compared to other leave-in conditioners. So after applying your leave -in conditioner, you can cover your hair for 5 min or 15 min with a plastic cap for more moisture retention.
