Methods To Fix Hair Porosity
There are many issues faced by the people with their naturally curly hair such as overly dry and frizzy. The most important reason for this problem would be due to a highly porous hair which has the ability to hold onto moisture, so try to deep condition your hair more often. Curly hair usually has higher levels of porosity and damaged or even chemically treated hair can open cuticles making the excessively porous hair to lose its moisture. Here is a simple method to control the hair porosity.
Always use a protein-based hair conditioner after washing your hair which will help to fill in the gaps in the cuticle as well as seal moisture by strengthening the hair. Use the conditioners that have ingredients like keratin, wheat, silk, vegetable proteins and collagen. Give a protein treatment for a dry and damaged hair. There are ready-made protein treatments that are available at beauty supply stores or you can prepare it at home. Mix an egg along with a regular conditioner and apply it over your hair. Leave it on your hair for at least 30 minutes and rinse it out completely. Then use a deep moisturizing conditioner all over the hair. You can also rinse the hair with an apple cider vinegar which can help to close open cuticles and retain moisture in your hair. Mix a 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar along with 2 cups of water and rinse the hair cool water.
