As naturals we hear it all the time: “learn your porosity!” You heard it from me in my post WTH Is Porosity? And you heard it from Madisen in her post Natural Hair: The Guide to Learning About Porosity. If you aren't sure what your porosity is, go ahead and read those posts before you read this one.
I believe that porosity is your most important hair type. It matters more than your curl pattern because it determines how your hair retains moisture. Moisture is what natural hair needs to thrive! Knowing and understanding your porosity can be a game changer!
You read the characteristics, you’ve been observing your hair and you figured out your porosity, now what?
Today Madisen and I are collaborating to bring you personalized tips on dealing with your porosity! The Low Porosity tips were written by me, based off my personal experiences of course; and the High Porosity tips are written by Madisen based off of hers! Unfortunately, we can'tguaranteethat they will work the same for you. As with everything natural hair includes some trial and error, but definitely give them a try as you figure out what works best foryou.
If you have low porosity hair, keep on reading. If you have high porosity hair, head over to Madisen’s post: 6 WAYS TO CARE FOR HIGH POROSITY HAIR.
