The 5 Best Oils for Low Porosity Natural Hair

IG @ericamuse

Hair porosity is how well hair is able to absorb and hold onto moisture. There is low, medium and high and all three affect your hair more than knowing your hair's type. As hair porosity becomes more relevant to naturals, the desire to not only know what type one has but what products will be ideal in managing that porosity.

Our hair needs moisture and it needs to hold onto it and knowing your porosity allows you to figure out the best ways to do so. Here are the differences:

Hair Porosity
People suffering from low porosity strands often need to steer clear of heavy oils and products that will just sit on the hair and keep moisture from penetrating the cuticle. Even though we are heading into winter and many are opting for heavier products, women with low porosity hair need to lean towards lighter products and oils. We've got a list of the best 5 that will not weight down your strands or keep hair habitually dry.

Argan Oil
Argan oil is a favorite among naturals as of late and for good reason. This ultra-light oil is extracted from the Argan nut from the Argan tree which grows in Southwestern Morocco. Treasured for years, Argan oil has an overabundance of antioxidants, fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, phytosterols and squalene.

Argan oil tends to be on the pricier side but worth every penny as it moisturizes, tames frizz, adds shine all without adding weight or build-up to low porosity hair. This is an excellent choice for adding to leave-ins or a light sealant on hair.

Grapeseed Oil
Grapeseed oil is one of the lightest oils available and much cheaper than Argan oil. Extracted from wine grapes, this oil has a great composition of fatty acids and vitamins like vitamin E. Grapeseed oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which makes it ideal for conditioning and moisturizing the hair and scalp.

Odorless and ultra-light, grapeseed oil is an excellent natural heat protectant and very close to composition as jojoba oil which is very close to human sebum. Its rich, silky texture is perfect for soothing away dryness and irritation and is suitable for all skin types since it won t clog pores or cause break-outs.

Baobab Oil
Extracted from the seeds of the Adansonia tree, Baobab oil is one of the most prominent oils in Africa and become increasing popular among naturals. This ultra-light oil is an emollient and rejuvenator that moisturizes without weighing down hair. Great for skin too, it is a primary component in the SheaMoisture low porosity haircare line like the SheaMoisture Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity Protein-Free Leave-In Detangler.

Baobab oil is great for hot oil treatments and a light sealant that will add sheen without making hair greasy. Another perk baobab oil is a sun protectant and tames frizz.

Safflower Seed Oil
Often overlooked for hair, Safflower seed oil is extracted from the safflower plant. This colorless, flavorless and odorless edible oil has been used for years for helping with hair thinning and baldness. Rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, this is an ideal light oil for low porosity strands.

Safflower seed oil is great for hair growth and can be used in scalp massages as it helps with blood circulation to the hair follicles. Not big on the scalp of hair penetrators but it does penetrate the hair shaft somewhat which makes it a good choice for moisturizing and conditioning.

Sunflower Oil
Closely related to safflower seed oil, this extremely light oil is extracted from the seeds of the sunflower which are indigenous to America. A high penetrating oil, (right under coconut oil), Sunflower oil is an excellent choice for adding moisture to strands, stimulating hair growth and improving scalp health.

Brands are no longer sleeping on the goodness of this light oil like Kiehl's Since 1851 Sunflower Color Preserving Deep Recovery Pak. A great oil to penetrate those strands lightly and effectively.

What's your favorite natural oil for your low porosity strands?

Dr okosun  herpes treatment is one of the most effective home remedies for herpes which has the ability to kill the herpes virus permanently. I found out I had herpes 4 years ago. My first outbreak was definitely the worst thing I ever experienced. The bumps and blisters were swollen and red. I had a doctor give me Valtrex but I take the generic. I had to take the Valtrex 1 gram a day for about a week and I had another doctor prescribe me Acyclovir but that gave me the worst headaches ever, so I stopped taking it.after 2 year all that prove abortive the herpes was still there,
Since I was first diagnosed I have about 2 outbreaks a month. I have been able to cope with this by having supportive family and friends who look out for me,though it wasn't easy for me, one day i read a post by someone testifying about Dr  okosun that she was cured totally using his herbal product, i decided to gave it a try, I contacted him as instructed in the testimony. i made request for the herbal medicine, he actually did send it to me and gave me the instruction on how i will use it,
The good news is this, i went to the hospital after the medication for test as instructed by Dr okosun, i was tested negative, i was surprised finding out that am now herpes virus negative against my former result which was positive, Am happy to let the whole world know that today am free from this herpes disease,

I’m here to testify about what Dr godwin did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 4 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Rose Smith on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Godwin on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, Dr Godwin prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as Dr godwin assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact Dr.godwin for help via [email protected] or whatsapp +2348158184060

Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR agaba helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is [email protected] just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : [email protected] or WhatApp: +2349074536486
