The Best Heat Tools to Use, According to Your Hair’s Porosity

We all know the types of products you should be using for your hair’s porosity, but have you ever given much thought to the tools you use? Hair porosity can make a world of a difference when it comes to how your hair handles heat or keeps curls. Here are the best tools according to your hair porosity!

High Porosity Hair

As you may very well know, high porosity hair allows a lot of product to seep in. It absorbs everything quickly it needs heavier oils and serums to make a dent. Similarly to how you would pick a stronger product for this type of hair, you should be picking a tool with high heat settings. Coarse, high porosity hair has met its match with the T3 Singlepass X: $230.00. The wide plates allow for you to get the job done faster, while the five adjustable heat settings can reach a high temperature of up to 410°F. It does all of this while still being gentle enough to give your hair shine and minimize damage.

Medium Porosity Hair

Medium porosity hair plays well with everyone in the sandbox. It tends to absorb product and moisture just fine, it also tends to hold curls and works well in a range of temperatures. You need a tool that is as versatile as your hair. Dyson Airwrap™ styler Smooth+Control: $499.99 is just the tool for the job. The genius engineers at the brand figured out a way to let hair hold a curl without using too much heat, perfect for medium porosity hair. You can start with towel-dried strands, apply heat with airflow and finish off with a cool burst. The attachments make it easy for you to switch between styles and finishes. Medium porosity haired girls do have all the fun!

Low Porosity Hair

Low porosity hair does well with low heat. On flip side, this type of hair has a hard time holding a curl, or any style for that matter! It also tends to be weighed down with any heat protectant or serum you apply before heat styling because the formulas don’t absorb and tend to sit there. The perfect solution is using T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers: $99.99. Their T3 HeatCore® Technology delivers even heat and they have two heat settings so that you can pick one suitable for your hair’s porosity. Because the hot rollers sit on your hair for a while and are cooled before you remove them, they help your hair hold its style longer while providing a little oomph.
