As we have always shared, low porosity hair isn’t the easiest to clean/nourish/moisturize since it isn’t easy to lift its cuticles and clean/let moisture/products/oils in.
That’s why it is highly recommended to always apply indirect heat when applying shampoos/cleansers and moisturizers, as this would help in lifting those cuticles.
However, for those who find it a hassle to do that every time they use a conditioner, you can switch the indirect heat with baking soda. It has a very high ph balance (of 9) which helps raise the cuticles of any hair (even low porosity) and eventually let moisture in.
So to all the low porosity gals, add a small amount of baking soda to your conditioner/deep conditioner in your next wash and let us know the difference. (Ps. You may want to finish your shower with cold water and/or an ACV rinse to shut those cuticles back again and retain the moisture)
