High Porosity Wishlist

*click the photo above to find out if you have high or low porosity 

Yesterday I found out that my hair porosity is high. I took the test on the shea mositure website and had a look at what high porosity means. Knowing what my hair porosity is should make it eaiser to find the right products.

I thought I'd share some of the products that I want to get my hand on.

From what I've read there are five key things I need to do in order to keep the mositure in my hair. I need to use protein treatments (monthly), deep condition my hair after every wash, seal in mositure with butters and oils, use heavy products with natural oils and use apple cider vinger and aloe vera.

*I've linked all the articles I've read at the end of this post.


Oils and butters seal in mositure. Olive oil, avocado oil and castor oil are the best natural oils for high porosity hair types.

*the oils linked below are all from Shea Butter Cottage. You can find coconut oil just about anywhere now. 

Avocado Oil £7.00
Castor Oil £4.80
Coconut Oil £4.00
Haitian Black Castor Oil £6.00
Shea Oil £5.10

Shampoo & Conditioner

I need heavier and thicker shampoos and conditoners, but they also need to contain high levels of water. I'm going to start doing a pre-poo to prevent unnessery breakage.

*All of the shampoos and conditoners linked below are from Beauty By Zara, except from the OGX shampoo and Conditoner. You can find the OGX range at BootsSuperdrug's and superstores like ASDA and TESCO.

ORS Olive Oil Replenshing Conditioner £2.99
ORS Olive Oil Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo £2.89
ElastaQP Creme Conditioning Shampoo £2.49
ElastaQP Intense Fortifying Conditioner £2.99
OGX Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo £6.99
OGX Anti-Breakage Keratin Oil Conditioner £6.99

Deep Conditioner

I love the way deep conditoners makes my hair feel. I'm glad the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Conditoner is recommend, because that Conditoner and a handful of coconut oil made my hair feel great the last time I used them together.

*The first two products are sold out on the Beauty by Zara site, so I've found the EDEN Deep Conditioner on Amazon. 

EDEN BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner £20.49

I defiantly need styling products to add in extra mositure after and before washes. Also they should help with detangling.

Shea Moisture Curlies Enhancing Smoothie sold out on Beauty by Zara, £12.29 on Amazon.

Protein Treatment

I've heard of protein treatments but I've never really understood what they were and how they work. From what I understand it's a way of keeping your hair healthy and full of protein. It's recommended to do this every month. There's different strengths to protein  treatments, my hair is pretty dry and brittle, but I think a strong treatment may be too harsh for my hair, so I'm going to start with a soft/moderate strength.

ORS Hair Mayonnaise £4.29
Tropic Isle Living JBCO Protein Conditioner £11.99
