Why knowing your hair porosity is important?
Another reason you take hair porosity into account is because of the protein-moisture balance.
All hair needs moisture protein in order to thrive and flourish. The lack of protein is what causes gaps in high porosity hair while low porosity has a lot of protein and that’s why moisture has trouble getting in.
#hairporosity #highporosityhair #proteinmoisturebalance #lowporosityhair
Has numerous gaps and holes in the hair shaft.
➡️Hair easily absorbs moisture and products but you have a hard time retaining moisture.
➡️Hair often looks and feels dry.
➡️Hair often looks frizzy.
➡️Hair dries quickly.
➡️If you have high porosity, you need to nourish your hair more often, at least 2-3 times a week.
What you need to do?
1️⃣ Use minimal heat. It’s best to air dry, if possible.
2️⃣ Incorporate regular deep conditioning into your hair regimen.
3️⃣ Rinse with cold water to seal the cuticle and prevent frizz.
4️⃣ Use LOC or LOC (especially the oil because oils are sealants) Layer these products to help your hair hold onto the mositure you're giving it. You can even follow up with a heavy butter to help fill the gaps in your damaged cuticle and further protect the hair from losing too much mositure.
5️⃣ You can also style your hair in protective styles such as buns or braids. They aid in keeping the moisture in for a long time.
#highporosityhair #hairporosity #naturalhairtips
Means that you have just enough gaps in your hair shaft to absorb and retain moisture pretty well. Absorbs easier than low porosity and retains better than high porosity.
➡️ Requires the least amount of maintenance.
➡️ Allows the right amount of moisture to enter while preventing much from escaping.
➡️ Curls are full of bounce and elasticity.
➡️ Holds styles well and can be colored with good results.
It’s the sweet spot because you don’t have to do too much or too little to moisturize.
What do you need to do?
1️⃣ Continue to do regular deep conditioning treatments to maintain good hair absorption and retention.
2️⃣ The LOC or LCO will work for you too.
Now that you know what your hair porosity is, let me tell you a few things about the different porosity levels.
I will start with ❇️LOW POROSITY❇️:
➡️ Has tightly closed hair cuticles.
➡️ Repels moisture when you try to wet it and resists pe*******on of products. However, once the moisture is in, it won’t get out easily.
➡️ Prone to build up from protein rich deep conditioners which leave it feeling stiff and straw-like. Use less protein deep conditioners and more of moisturising deep conditioners with ingredients like glycerin, honey.
➡️ Usually dry which requires moisturizers with emollients such as Shea butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil.
➡️ Responds well to lighter liquid based products such as hair milks that won't sit on the hair and leave it oily or greasy.
➡️ Takes forever to dry when you air dry , from 24 - 48hrs depending on the style.
➡️ Easily tangles (esp. single stand knots)
➡️ Tight shrinkage
📍What you need to do if your hair is low porosity?
1️⃣ Clarifying - wash your hair often with a clarifying shampoo and rinses such as ACV or baking soda treatments.
2️⃣ Deep conditioning using heat. Sitting under a hooded dryer or steamer will help get the most out of your deep conditioners.
3️⃣ Layering your poducts- keep lightweight to prevent product build up. Liquid, Oil, Cream (LOC), or Liquid, Cream, Oil (LCO) method. For liquid, be sure to use warm or lukewarm water or water- based products. The temperature allows the cuticle to be raised so that moisture can seep into it. The “C” for cream can be replaced with “B” for butter if you prefer.
4️⃣ Seek out humectants and emollients such as glycerin, honey and castor oil.
5️⃣ Apply product to damp hair not drenched hair.
6️⃣ Plait styles that will give you the most stretch e.g braid or threading, ensure to stretch the plaits with hair pins.
Still on Hair Porosity 🤓
You may ask - How do you know your hair porosity?
Try out these 2 tests 🔍
📌The Float Test
Take a few strands of your clean hair (make sure it has been washed) and drop into a bowl/glass of room temperature water. Let it sit for at least 5 - 30 mins.
If it floats, you have low porosity because that means that none of the moisture is getting absorbed.
If it sinks, you have high porosity because that means a lot of water is getting absorbed.
If the hair is half way, it means you have medium/normal porosity.
📌The Strand Test
Hold a strand of your hair between your index finger and thumb. Slide your fingers up the shaft in order to determine the porosity.
If it’s smooth, you have low porosity because there aren’t any gaps in the hair shaft.
If it’s a little bumpy/rough then you have medium porosity.
If it feels really bumpy/rough then you have high porosity because of all the gaps in the hair shaft.
The strand test method though can be misleading because things like knots and the general coerceness of the hair can make it feel bumpy. Also your interpretation of what you consider smooth or bumpy might differ from someone else.
Do let us know the results of your test.
Knowing your porosity is a game changer for your natural hair journey.

What is Hair Porosity?🔍
Hair Porosity simply refers to how well your hair is able to absorb and hold moisture. The hair cuticles determine how easily moisture and products pass in and out of your hair.
Porosity is mostly genetic but can be altered by external such as exposure to heat treatments, color treatments, over manipulation and chemical processing which can damage your hair cuticle by creating holes and gaps thus easily allowing in and out of moisture.
💡It is possible to have more than one level of porosity in your hair? YES!
💡Why is knowing your hair porosity important?
Knowing your hair porosity is much more helpful to maintaining your hair’s health than knowing your hair type.
📍It's important to know your hair porosity in order to help choose the right products to keep your hair well moisturized, it will save you money and plenty of headaches.
📍Your hair’s reaction to a particular product is based on how porous your hair is. Depending on your porosity level, you can determine if a gel, butter or cream will work best for your curls. It will also help to eliminate the hassle of purchasing products that may not be a good fit for your hair.
Water 💦 is hands down the best form of moisture for your hair.
PRACTICAL TIPS TO START TODAY
5 simple tips
Practice these tips and you will be amazed at your hair.
Natural Hair Care!
Growing out your natural hair is much easier than you think! It does not require a PhD to figure our natural hair care. However we must tackle our mindset first.
«First off, stop comparing your texture to others. Period! This sets you up for failure if you believe your hair texture is not ‘good’ enough. All textures are good! We ALL have good and bad hair days regardless of texture. It is okay! Be kind to yourself and good karma will return.
«Secondly, stop believing your hair does not grow. Unless you have an underlying medical issue, your hair continuously grows in a regular hair cycle. Rather focus on RETENTION.
«Lastly, stop looking for magic hair products. Most times, it is not the product that produces results but your hair management process. And management does not have to take so much of your time or money. Be practical in this and you will see results without going broke or hoarding.

Let's talk about scalp massaging!
It's quite easy to forget to massage your scalp (i know i do). We wash, we deep condition, we moisturise. But we need to know that scalp massaging is also as important.
According to research, scalp massage increases hair thickness by stretching the cells of hair follicles. This, in turn, stimulates the follicles to produce thicker hair. Also scalp massage may help dilate blood vessels beneath the skin, thereby encouraging hair growth.
Tip: Massage your scalp everyday for 5 mins.
Use the tips of your fingers and not your finger nails.
Question for the day: how often do you massage your scalp, do you use your fingers or a scalp massage equipment?? What oil do you use? .
We highly recommend these two oils - Jamaican Black Castor Growth Oil and the Strong Roots Red Pimento Hair Growth Oil (The Applicator bottle makes it easier to apply on your scalp).
Each is UGX 50,000/= and you can purchase now from our online store: https://flutterwave.com/store/chenys
