The Science of Black Hair

How well do you know your hair?

It is important to have an intimate relationship with your hair to determine what makes it grow, your dos and don’ts, and how well it absorbs moisture.

Wondering why this is important? Let me tell you a little bit about hair porosity.

Next time you wash your hair, grab a few strands and dip them in a glass of water. If your hair sinks to the bottom, then it is of high porosity. If it floats in the middle, that is normal porosity. But if it floats on the top, then your hair is of low porosity.

Low porosity is normally genetic and can be managed by steaming or dampening your hair before adding any hair food to strengthen your hair roots and cuticles. High porosity occurs due to prolonged exposure of your hair to heat and chemicals. This can be cured by using protective hairstyles over a long period of time to repair and grow out weaker areas of the hair.

On the other hand, normal porosity means you have been giving your hair the love and attention it needs. But you’re not out of the woods yet. To maintain normal porosity, a good protective style regimen is ideal. Some protective hairstyles include our Senegalese twist on a lace wig, French braided wigs, lace front box braids... and braids on a wig!
