How to Treat Dreads When Your Hair is Low Porosity
Who knew hair could be a bit stubborn sometimes? Well, that can sometimes be the case if you have dreads that are low porosity. So, why can low porosity locs be a bit challenging sometimes?
Simply because it's difficult for moisture to make its way into the air because of the fact that the cuticle is closed.
Essentially, your cuticle layer is tightly closed.
Now, why does this matter?
Because if your hair isn’t getting the moisture that it’s craving, your first instinct is to add MORE products to your locs.
However, that’s not the answer.
Adding heavy styling products to your low porosity locs will do your hair more harm than good.
So, ditch all the random products that you’ve had for years…
And don’t even think about accepting random products from your friends that you know aren’t loc-friendly.
More isn’t always better.
You should reach for light oils instead.
OOLI’s Bless Up Oil is perfect to treat low porosity locs.
It’s packed with nourishing Jamaican Sorrel - which comes from the Hibiscus plant, so it’s super rich in alpha hydroxy.
