Knowing your porosity level can make a world of difference in your hair care shopping. Different products work for different hair types. Low porosity hair, in particular, can be difficult to care for if you’re not using the right kind of moisturizer. Because of its tightly shut cuticles, low porosity hair has a hard time absorbing moisture which can result in a dry, brittle texture. The best way to open up those cuticles is to steam your hair and apply conditioner, following up with a moisturizing cream and sealant oils. While this is an A1 solution, it’s not always convenient for everyday maintenance. All you need to maintain soft hydrated hair is a good leave-in conditioner, one that specifically caters to low-porosity hair. Check out our top picks below.
1. CANTU SHEA BUTTER LEAVE-IN REPAIR CREAM
