Full size: 8 oz aluminum jar | Sample/Travel Size 2 oz aluminum Jar
Low porosity hair refers to the small amount of gaps within the cuticle. The fewer gaps there are, the lower the porosity.
Because it isn’t very porous, low porosity hair is typically considered healthy, so long as you are able to properly hydrate it. Getting hydration through the cuticle in low-porosity hair can be challenging; adding heavy ingredients makes it even more challenging. So the main focus for those with low porosity hair is getting moisture IN, once it’s in, it isn’t easily lost.
That said, you don’t want to avoid natural oils, and butters altogether, you just want to use the right ones.
This curl cream was intentionally formulated for low porosity hair in humid climates to define and provide light hold while preventing frizz.
For temperate climates, or areas with average dew points of 35-55F
