Have you taken our hair porosity quiz and/or self-evaluated your hair to determine that your hair is more low porosity, meaning your hair doesn't easily allow moisture to be absorbed into your hair shaft. Here are few, simple tips specific to this case that can help you obtain moisture and maintain healthy moisture levels. 


  • EVERY OTHER DAY- Use either LCO (Liquid or leave-in conditioner, Cream, Oil) or the LOC (Leave-In or liquid, Oil, Cream) method to keep your hair moisturized
  • PRE-POO* on WASH DAY- PrePoo the night before wash day to help with detangling and obtaining moisture. You can cover your pre-poo and sleep comfortably with Glow by Daye reversible, satin-lined shower cap.
  • On WASH DAY (Weekly or Bi-Weekly) after washing your hair with your products of choice, DEEP CONDITION for 15-30 minutes with heat and Style and Protect your style as needed. 

REPEAT. Remember consistency with anything is where results are seen. These are simple steps that can help you stay consistent with a routine specific to your hair needs. Let us know what else you do for your low porosity hair that helps in the comments below. 👇🏾

*Not sure what PrePoo is? "Pre Pooing" is applying a treatment to your hair before the actual shampoo process. The treatment provides your hair with a protective layer. This is helpful because shampooing can strip moisture from the hair

    Hey! When you say coconut oil, do you mean the liquid form?

    Hi Pre Poo you can use alot of different options. Your hair usually will help you figure out which one works best for you. Coconut oil is defintiley a popular one. There are others you can use such as avocado or olive oil as well. Some prefer ones like aloe vera or butters or even a light conditioner to help you detangle before wash day. Keep in mind there are endless possibilities here. We suggest trying multiple ones and document how your wash day goes so you remember what worked the best. Hope this helps!

    “Pre Pooing is applying a treatment to your hair before the actual shampoo process.” What would be a good pre pooing treatment or product?
