If you have low porosity hair, a term often used described strands that frequently repel moisture, your kinks and coils will require more TLC: temperature, liquids and conditioning to avoid excess dryness.
Because of tightly sealed cuticles, nourishing proteins found in hair products aren’t easily absorbed. In turn, they sit on top of hair, causing a greasy build up that weighs down curls instead of inspiring them to pop.

If you’re not sure what hairstyles work best with low porosity hair, start by testing out these easy-to-follow YouTube tutorials with some of the best products for your curl pattern.
