Honest Review of Low Porosity hair products you HAVE to try
Low Porosity products that I've completely fallen in love with
Learning about the different natural hair products you can use can be such a fun experience to have! As I spoke about in my, Natural Hair Care Tips for Beginners‘ I mentioned how IMPORTANT it was to know your hair Porosity.
Knowing whether you are low or high porosity can help you with choosing between the right and wrong products for your hair.
Personally, I found out through the ‘Float Test’ that I was low porosity. This meant that I needed to pick products that penetrated my hair cuticles enough so that they could get the moisture and nutrients they so desperately needed.
Don’t know what ‘The Float Test’ is? That’s okay! Click here and I’ll explain it to you!
My goal for this isolation is to learn all that I need to know about taking care of my hair and growing it to become healthy, happy, and THRIVING.
Here, I list some of my most favourite products I’ve used so far that have really changed my hair game so far.
Low Porosity Products in order of my application:
Aussie Paraben - Free Miracle Moist Shampoo for Dry Hair
My biggest worry when it comes to Shampoo is having it strip ALL of my good oils from my hair leaving it dry and brittle. So when I found this, I was intrigued by the fact that it promotes moisture and HYDRATING the hair rather than stripping it away.
When I saw Avocado and Jojoba – I was sold. I really want to use more natural oils in my hair and these two are two I am very excited about.
As a result, this product smells GREAT. It smells refreshing and sweet – not at all overpowering.
My only vice is that:
I really want to lean towards Sulphate Free Shampoo
Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Treatment Masque
I am a HUGE lover of deep treatment. I like to do it once a month so I love experimenting with different types of conditioners to see how happy they make my hair.
This specific one leaves my hair feeling soft, silky, and FED.
After I shampoo my hair – I put some conditioner in a little bowl. Heat it up for 20-35 seconds in the microwave (until it’s warm and bubbly) and then I apply it GENEROUSLY all over my hair. After this, I wrap it up in a nice towel (preferably a plastic cap) and I wait 25-30 minutes before rinsing it out.
My hair feels like BUTTER and it feels so nice and happy! Woo !
Leave In Conditioner
Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Leave-In Treatment
When I finish with my shampoo and conditioner and my hair is damp – I spray a generous amount of this treatment into my hair!
I love how it smells, and it does a great job moisturizing my natural curls.
Although I do love the smell – I would like to find something more intense as this sits super light on my curls.
We need that deep moisture penetration – low porosity peeps!!!
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
I cannot say enough great things about this product! Not only does it smell absolutely DELICIOUS. *Picture being on a sunny beach, with a pina colada, and the waves splashing softly by, and.. You get it*
But it also does it’s JOB. Even a small amount on each section leaves every curl DEFINED. I never even knew my curl pattern existed until I used this product and WOW – I was amazed!
Rest assured – this reduces frizz, dryness AND it brings your curls to LIFE. It’s thick, creamy, and smells FANTASTIC.
I will say, a little bit goes a long way. You probably don’t want to overdue it just because just like with any product, a lot of one things tend to weigh it down and that is NOT what we want.
Now that you’ve applied all the moisture, it’s important to SEAL it all in.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil
If you are not already using this product – you HAVE to try it out. I use it every single morning and night on my tips and in my roots and it has GREATLY impacted my hair growth.
It’s a thick oil that pours out of a small bottle. All I can say, is that a little bit has went A VERY long way.
Since using this product, I have noticed every time I re-do my twists, my growth has been EXTREME.
I just feel like it’s such a natural, organic product and my hair is in LOVE with it.
Upcoming Buys that I am VERY Excited about:
The Mane Choice Heavenly Halo Herbal Hair Tonic & Soy Milk Deep Hydration Pre-Poo
I have been very interested in a “before shampoo” moisterizer to use! I came across this in one of Bri Halls’ video and I am VERY excited to use it. Shampooing your hair strips your hair of moisture so pre-pooing is important to replenish those oils and stock up your hair with moisture before the stripping happens.
I have ordered a spray bottle off of amazon that I will be using for RICE WATER TREATMENT. This is a popular method where one uses fermented rice water on their hair to achieve EXTREME hair growth. I am SUPER excited so I will be covering more in depth VERY SOON.
