Recall the LOC and LCO methods of keeping moisture in the hair. These two processes are crucial for naturals that suffer from dry hair.

The name of the game is to keep moisture in your strands, and your hair type may make it harder for you to do it but, don’t be worried it is all doable. If you have high porosity hair, then you should do the LCO method.

LCO or liquid, cream, and oil work best for high and low porosity because it allows you to put a heavy oil into your hair to help keep the moisture from escaping. Your liquid can be anything from leave-in conditioner to just good old fashioned water.

Your cream should be a lightweight moisturizer or butter, and your oil should be medium to heavy. Normal porosity naturals can use either method since their hair holds moisture well.

If the hair is dry, there is a chance that you just need a deep conditioning treatment and a bit more TLC. There’s no reason to buy one of those little packets that they have at the local beauty supply store– any natural deep conditioner that is for dry damaged hair will do the trick.

So, for women who suffer from dry hair, your natural hair care regime should look something like this:

  • Use bentonite clay mixed with apple cider vinegar to eliminate product build-up.
  • Wash hair with a moisturizing shampoo.
  • Deep condition hair with your favorite hair mask.
  • Apply your favorite conditioner.
  • Towel dry with a 100% cotton T-shirt.
  • Perform your LOC or LCO method.
  • Style hair or set your hair as usual.

Helpful Low Porosity Hair Tips For Stronger Hair!

One option for a style after the hair has gone through the deep conditioning process is to add a moisturizer and then two strands twist your hair. This helps you keep the hair stretched out while also keeping the moisture locked into your hair.

In between washes, completes steps 4-6, so your hair will not dry out. Also, get a spray bottle and fill half with water, half with a leave-in conditioner, and 2 tablespoons of jojoba oil.

Spray a little on your hair as a daily routine to help keep your hair from getting dry. If you have low porosity hair, keep reading on specific info regarding your hair type. 

POROSITY LEVEL

Porosity level refers to how well your hair retains water or moisture in general’ the term is called low porosity or high porosity. You cannot make this determination by simply looking at it; it gets a little deeper than that.

There are three different levels of porosity: low, normal, and high. Low porosity hair means that your hair does not take water well.

To get more technical, the cuticles are super tight or don’t lift easily. In turn, the product usually just sits on top of the hair and will take forever to dry.

Normal porosity hair has the least amount of excess maintenance because the cuticle layers are raised just enough to allow moisture to enter into the hair. High porosity hair is usually damaged hair that has holes and a limited amount of protein.

To test your porosity level, all you need is a clear glass of room temperature water.

Take a strand or two of your freshly washed hair and place it into the water. After 5 minutes, take a look at the strands.

If the hair floats, then you have low porosity hair because water is not coming in. If it floats for a little bit then starts to sink, then you have normal porosity hair.

If it sinks right away, then you have high porosity hair. It is just that simple!

Knowing your hair porosity level is essential for putting together a natural hair care regimen because you have to know what kind of products that you will need to buy. Keep reading for more detailed information about how to put together your perfect natural hair care regimen.

CLEANSE

  • Your hair needs to be clean and your scalp needs to breathe in order for healthy hair to grow.
  • Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. (Avoid relying just on co-washing, because this won’t adequately cleanse your scalp of product buildup.)
  • Most Naturals wash their hair somewhere between once a week to once a month. You’ll need to experiment to find out what frequency works for you. If this is your first time establishing a natural hair regimen, start with once a week and then experiment with longer intervals.
  • How to tell if you should change your shampoo schedule:
    • If your hair feels limp, dull, lifeless, greasy, dirty, or other products don’t seem to work anymore, you probably need to shampoo more often.
    • If your hair feels dry, brittle, or frizzy, try extending the time between washes.
  • If you cleanse less often, go lighter with other products to avoid buildup. If you cleanse more often, be more diligent with moisturizers.

CONDITION

There are three main categories of conditioners, and all are important! Here’s the breakdown:

Daily or rinse-out conditioner– a light conditioner that can be used on a daily basis and is meant to be washed out. It makes your hair easier to detangle, less prone to frizz, and hydrates hair. Use this anytime you get your hair wet (and use it during detangling if you detangling is tricky for you.)

  • Leave-in conditioner– use after washing your hair to replenish and maintain moisture in your hair. Apply to damp hair, after washing and before styling.
  • Deep conditioner– an intensive moisturizing and nourishing treatment. You leave this conditioner in for a certain amount of time and then rinse it out. While deep conditioners help with the same things as the other types of conditioner (detangling, softening, frizz, moisture), you should think of deep conditioner as a five-star meal for your hair. It provides not just moisture, but all the nutrients your hair needs to be really healthy.
MOISTURIZE
  • We talk a lot about moisture at NaturAll Club… because it’s so important! Moisture is the answer to so many problems: breakage, dryness, tangling, matting, even hair loss.
  • Depending on the porosity of your hair, you may need moisture on a daily basis. Moisturize all parts of your hair, but focus on the ends.
  • Moisturize at night (to protect your hair when you sleep, and to avoid your hair looking weighed down.)
  • Methods: steam (in the shower works great!), leave-in conditioner, refresher spray, LOC or LCO method.
SEAL
  • Moisturizing is futile if you don’t seal in the moisture!
  • Every time you moisturize your hair, use a sealer or anti-humectant to keep your hair moisturized throughout the day.
  • Experiment with different oils to see what your hair likes best. Some suggestions:
    • For thicker or coarser hair, try Shea butter or Jamaican black castor oil.
    • For finer hair, try jojoba oil, avocado oil, or olive oil.

DETANGLE

  • Detangle often. This will reduce hair loss, matting, dryness, and breakage. The more often you do it, the easier it will be each time.
  • Detangle carefully and gently to avoid damaging your hair. Use a wide-tooth comb or finger detangle.
    • Finger detangling works if you have very fine or brittle hair, but do a full detangle with a comb from time to time. It’s easy to miss parts of hair with your fingers, which can develop tangles.
  • Start from the ends, always pulling down, and then work your way up. This will reduce breakage.
  • Detangle hair damp (not dry and not soaking wet; your hair is brittle and weak in either state.)
  • If detangling is particularly difficult or painful, use a conditioner to add slip.

 

STYLE & PROTECT
  • This part is completely up to you and your hair! Learn the styles you like and can do well, but also practice some low manipulation styles like buns and twists to do on days when you’re tired or don’t have time.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment!
  • Watch out for product buildup if you use a lot of styling products.
  • Cover your hair with a bonnet at night, or sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase. Use hats and scarves to protect your hair from extreme weather!
