Combating Porous Hair….

  • Avoid  products, which contain silicone and/or paraffin, which only serve to coat the hair with a superficial sheen rather than penetrating, restoring strengthening the hair itself.
  • Where possible, look for ph balanced products.
  • Wash and condition your hair  using a keratin/protein based shampoo and conditioner. Protein fills the gaps, smooths and reinforces the cuticle, enabling the hair to hold much-needed moisture.
  • Incase you are protein sensitive (hair dry and brittle after using protein enhanced products), rinse hair with Apple Cider Vinegar and leave on the hair for about 10 mins.  The acidic nature of the ACV  will strengthen, smooth and seal,  (temporarily) the raised cuticle, which when mixed with water, will mimic and coat the hair with a ph level of between 4.5 -5.5) helping to keep much-needed moisture in the hair.
  • Outside of ACV, rinse hair in cold water, and where possible.
  • If you must colour your hair, look for a coloured or clear rinse, which contain protein, and shine enhancers,  without, adding more damage to the hair shaft.
  • Hair products for coloured hair are also useful as they are acidic in their nature, and designed to build and repair over processed, dry and damaged hair, which is what (in the most) porous hair is.

  1. Great post! A lot of people think porous hair cannot be repaired or treated.

    It is very possible to reverse bad hair porosity using the right hair care techniques & of course ingredients. There are certainly ingredients that help to treat porous hair.

    When i first went natural, my hair was dull & dry, and porous. Through the use of my own recipes which are ph balanced & contain ingredients that deal with porosity, my hair has changed…for the better. I have a good hair day….every day.

    Don’t believe the lies…healthy beautiful is achievable. I am proof.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Indeed….you are so right…you can reverse, the condition of your hair….what I’m learning is that you have to be willing to research, listen, spend some money, trying out the products that others recommend…especially natural products with specific oils etc….for me I think ACV changed my hair completely!!!!

      But thanks for reading…all he best with business, and please keep sharing….xxx
