Do you have low porosity curls? If so, you're in the right place. For those with low porosity curls, it can sometimes feel a bit tricky to find the right products for your strands. You don't want something too heavy, but you also don't want something that isn't going to be effective for your strands. Therefore, you might find it tricky to find the right oils for your curls. However, oils are great for curls, and something you shouldn't completely avoid. Instead, just grab some oils that are best suited for low porosity curls. Here are a few to get you started.
If you have fine, wavy curls that are also low porosity, grab yourself a bottle of grapeseed oil. It's the lightest on this list, and also works great to protect curls against heat. It makes a great natural heat protecting treatment for delicate curls.
This oil is having a serious moment, and can be seen just about everywhere, and in tons of different products. It's easy to see why. It works great on low porosity curls because it's extremely moisturizing, so your strands will be infused with lots of extra moisture. This will lead to soft, easy to style curls and much less frizz.
This oil isn't as well known, but still worth giving a try. It's not the heaviest oil, but still has some heft to it. This oil works great for curls that are very dry, and in need of some extra hydration.
Those with low porosity curls know that it's important to have an oil that actually can penetrate int your curl's tight cuticle. This oil is one of them. Apricot oil works great for curly girls with very high porosity curls, as it can get into the inner cortex of your strands.
This is another oil that's having a bigger moment, and is starting to get featured in more products. It's light, and therefore can be easily absorbed into your curls, allowing your strands to be more moisturized. This makes it a great choice for whether you have thick, dense curls, or finer, lightweight strands.
