How Well Does Your Hair Retain Moisture?


Porosity measures hairs' ability to adequately take in colour, moisture and any other topical liquid. Porosity levels are usually measured on a low, normal or high scale with most of us labelling ourselves either low or high. Over-bleaching, straightening and over-use of hot iron tools can quickly take your hair from high porosity to low porosity in an instant. 

I know, hard to believe! While some people enjoy automatic gloss and hydration after deep conditioning and applying our preferred must-have hair products, others cannot seem to get their hair to hold any moisture, and their hair lengths can be left brittle, dry, and in need of hydro-resuscitation minutes after washing. 

People with low porosity hair typically notice that hair products appear to rest on top of the hair or scalp, taking a significantly longer time to absorb - for example: going to bed after washing your hair and waking up to find that it is still damp in the morning. 

Determining your hair's porosity level can be the key to saving yourself time and energy on products that are not effective, it will also help to determine what protective styling techniques are best to use if you are presently on a #longhairhourney.

 Lastly, we would be remiss if we failed to convey just how important it can be to sleep on Satin Caps. Such unassuming beauty tools protect your hair against the harsh efects of the fibers from our bedding. If you are interested in growing longer, healthier hair and preventing breakage a silk pillow case or a satin cap is a must-have item. If you use a cotton pillowcase or cotton bedsheets your hair is highly likely to rub against the cotton material, creating friction. This may cause weak strands to break off, essentially causing a laddering effect or breakage which runs all the way up the hair strand. You may begin to notice that your hair does not appear to be growing very fast and as you undoubtedly know hair breakage is one of the major causes that prevents healthy hair growth. Be kinder to your hair and prevent breakage by making it your healthy hair resolution to sleep on satin or silk.
