How To DIY Your High Porosity Curl Products
Making your own leave in moisturizer is super easy. Purchase or squeeze your own aloe vera juice. Mix 2 parts aloe vera to 1 part water, and pour into a spray bottle. Mix well to combine. After showering, apply liberally throughout your hair. This will add in extra moisture that may have been lost during cleansing. It's also great as a curl refresher.
One of the biggest issues curly girls with high porosity hair experience is moisture loss. Therefore, you need something to lock moisture in. Dilute oil with water, or shea butter to apply after you've added in moisture. This will seal moisture in and help minimize moisture loss. Choose an oil that's consistent with your curl's texture. For example, thicker, kinkier coils might need a heavier oil.
Every high porosity girl needs a deep conditioner. Add 1 cup of coconut milk to 2 egg whites and mix until smooth. Then, blend in 1 cup of full fat yogurt, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix until completely smooth. Apply throughout freshly washed curls and allow to sit for 2 hours. You can also cover with a warm towel to help the ingredients penetrate into your curl's cuticles.
Split end tamer:
While there's no repair for splits, you can help minimize the damage. Until you can get in for a trim use olive oil to smooth over your split ends.
