5 Hair Oils For High Porosity Hair

Before we go into this, we need to have a basic understanding of what high porosity hair is. High porosity hair refers to hair that has difficulty in retaining moisture. High porosity hair has no issue absorbing water or hair production. However, retention is an issue. It is highly porous; there’s space between the cuticles so it loses water just as easily as it absorbs it.

You want to be on the lookout for heavier oils, some of which are listed below, as well as their benefits.

Try using it once a week first and ensure to get the best one from a trusted brand. You can also opt for a product infused with castor oil first just to see how your curls react to it.

I hope by now you know what oils to get and to look out for in your hair products. You can also use a combination of 2 or more of these oils with essential hair oils or simply get an oil mix, but make sure to check the ingredients.

Tiny tip before you go: always do a patch test before fully using any oils so you can know of any adverse effects beforehand. Also, no matter how nice they are, avoid using any of these oils in excess in order to avoid buildup on your hair and scalp.
