Hair Porosity Care

 

Hair porosity is the hair's ability to absorb moisture.

What's Low Porosity Hair?

In low porosity hair, the cuticles of the hair are extremely tight. Therefore it's very difficult for moisture to penetrate the hair shaft.  It's also difficult for products to penetrate the hair so most products and moisture sits on top of the hair.  Low Porosity Hair Butter contains butters that act as a humectant to force moisture into the hair shaft.

What's High Porosity Hair? 

In High porosity hair

the cuticles of your hair contain gaps and tears. Therefore the hair absorbs moisture and products but it doesn't hold on to the moisture nor the product.  High Porosity Hair Butter fills in the gaps to nourish your hair and return its shine.

Low Porosity Hair

Low porosity hair is caused by tight cuticles that inhibit moisture from entering the hair.  It doesn't mean that your hair is damaged it just has a specific need, which is moisture retention.   Products with harsh ingredients or silicone can create a barrier that keeps moisture from entering your hair; resulting in dry damaged hair from the inside out.   The main goal is to moisturize the hair. Another problem that can cause low porosity hair to turn high porosity is co-washing or cleansing conditioners. 

 Also, the hair is very prone to build up.  Shampooing is a must, build up must be removed.  Another thing to note when you shampoo is the cuticles open a bit and that’s a great opportunity to deep condition your hair to deposit nutrients & vitamins into the hair to strengthen the hair against breakage and thinning.  One of the most important suggestions that we give here at Cachos Brazil is weekly or bi-weekly Pre-Shampoo treatments. There're many benefits to pre-shampooing your hair.  It prepares hair for the manipulation the hair endures during wash day by softening the hair.  It coats the hair with natural oils to strengthens the hair's structure to prevent breakage and improve elasticity. Also improves or restore keratin production.

Low porosity hair tend to be protein sensitive, it may have a reverse effect on the hair.  Instead of conditioning and hydrating, the hair may feel brittle and dry.  Protein sensitive doesn't mean you should never use protein and it just means less often.  

-Coarse hair tends to tolerate proteins less often than fine to medium hair.  Excessive usage may leave the hair dry, brittle and lifeless.

When this layer is removed the cuticles are aggressively raised, the strands catch onto each and become easily tangled.  The hair looks lifeless and thin.
