I receive so many emails and comments from readers that sound a little like this:
“Help, I have low porosity hair!” “Ugh, I’m about to relax or texlax this situation, because this low porosity hair is no joke” “My hair is dry and dead, because it’s low porosity” “My hair will never grow, because it’s low porosity”
I would like to say to everyone lamenting over their low porosity hair, you should be celebrating.
- You have beautiful, healthy and low to no damage hair. Next to normal porosity, low porosity hair is considered very healthy, because once it receives the necessary moisture, it thrives and retains the moisture.
- Low porosity hair that is well moisturized glows and shines.
- Once you figure out what works for your hair, it will grow to great lengths and look healthy
You should consider this hair as a blessing. It might not be where you want it to be now. However, once you give your low porosity hair the key ingredients, regimen and environment that it needs. It will thrive and it will shine like a star. The key is just application and patience.
Next time you think about getting a relaxer or texlaxer, because you’re tired of your low porosity hair. Just remember, low porosity hair takes longer to process than normal or high porosity and it’s more difficult to process. While possible, this might not be considered an easy solution.
So with that being said, embrace your lo-po hair and let’s keep finding ways to keep it moisturized and healthy.
Were you excited or disappointed when you found out you had low porosity hair?
