When it comes to managing highly porous hair, the goals should be reducing and reversing damage to the cuticle, and also helping your hair retain moisture. High porosity hair can be a blessing and a challenge. It readily absorbs moisture but struggles to retain it. To ensure your hair stays healthy and lustrous, it's essential to use the right products and follow specific care routines.

In this guide, we'll explore the best ways to care for high porosity hair, including product suggestions from GIRL+HAIR that will transform your hair care routine.


Understanding High Porosity Hair

High porosity hair features a lifted cuticle layer, allowing it to absorb moisture like a sponge. However, this also means it loses moisture quickly, resulting in dryness, frizz, and damage. Effective care is the key to overcoming these challenges.


Product Suggestions for High Porosity Hair

To help nourish, moisturize, and repair highly porous hair, it’s important to use products that have the right formulation for this hair type. Typically, this will involve using hair care products that include “heavier” ingredients like oils or butter.
