What are the characteristics of highly porous hair? How do I care for it? In today’s post, we are going to take a closer look at this question.
It is important to know that the porosity of hair depends on your genes, your diet, the temperature and humidity of the air, the cosmetics, and the care and styling you use. Regular use of blow-dryers and flat irons as well as colouring or perming cause the hair cuticles to bend. The result is dull, weak and brittle hair.

Highly porous hair is rough to the touch, tangled, damaged, dry, dull, easily styled, suffers from the effects of high humidity, takes a long time to dry after shampooing and the ends dry faster than the roots, frizzes intensely and gains volume through humidity and has split, brittle ends. If you are still not sure whether your hair is very or very porous you should perform a test using water and a glass. Place a single hair on the surface of the glass.

What products should I use for my hair with very porous hair? You should opt for mild shampoos that do not contain strong detergents. A conditioner should also be used to protect the hair strands and to make brushing easier. Apply a serum such as almond serum to the ends of your hair every day. Once a week, you may wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo and then apply a silk protein, milk or keratin mask and leave it on for about 30 minutes. In addition, owners of highly porous hair should oil it once a week. This treatment considerably improves the hair’s condition. There are various ways to treat your hair with hair oil: dry or wet. Apply the chosen oil before shampooing and leave it there for 1-2 hours.
As far as hair oils are concerned, polyunsaturated oils from the Omega-3 and Omega-6 group, which are characterized by large molecules, are best for highly porous hair. These oils are effective in smoothing the hair and making it more resilient. You should reach for linseed, sunflower, grape seed, sweet almond, cannabis, wheat germ, evening primrose, avocado and broccoli oils, among others.
What else is worth remembering during skin care? It is very important to massage your scalp gently during shampooing. Do not rub strands of hair but instead gently brush at the roots. The shampoo that flows over them will gently cleanse them. Before applying conditioner to wet hair, pat it dry with a cotton or paper towel. Use lukewarm water to rinse. The one used for the last rinse can be slightly cooler. Do not pour cold water over the roots. This can weaken their roots
