About a year ago, I discovered that I had low porosity hair. Meaning that the cuticles on my hair shaft lay very flat, making it a struggle for my hair to absorb moisture. But after doing some research, I realized that using heat on my hair can be very beneficial.
using indirect heat for Low porosity
Now when I say heat, I do not mean frying your hair with a blow dryer or flat iron every day. Because if I did that, I would have loads of heat damage and severely damaged hair.Which for me would not be cute because ain’t nobody got time to be losing hair.
Needless to say, when it comes to heat, I tend to use indirect heat when I do my weekly deep conditioners. For example: Using a hooded dry or hair steamer is great for those who have low porosity hair. Because the cuticles are so tightly closed, heat is the only way to penetrate the hair shaft.
So once I started using my hooded dryer, I noticed that my hair felt softer. Not only that, but I finally started to realize that not all heat is bad for your hair. Especially if your hair requires some special TLC. But after using the hooded dryer for a while, I came across the blow dryer attachment while browsing on youtube. So below, you can see my video on when I first got the blow dryer attachment.
If you can not afford a hooded dry or hair steamer, then invest your money into this attachment. Not only is it portable, but you can easily deep condition your hair while watching tv or doing something else. So if you all found this post helpful, be sure to comment below.
