Hey Everyone,

Are there days where you struggle with getting your hair hydrated during this natural hair journey? Do you feel like you add products but the moisture and hydration of your hair never seem to last long? What about on wash days? Do you notice that once you add products to your hair, it looks full, moisturize, define, and hydrated for about a day, and then it seems to return back to its natural dry state? I know we all struggle with this and sometimes it makes you question if you want to continue this natural hair journey that we’re all on.

Protective Hairstyles and What People Should Do Once They’re Done

Posted on Leave a comment

Hey Everyone,

Have you ever gotten a protective hairstyle that was so tight you needed to take a Tylenol just to go to bed and get some salvation? I know I have and I’m sure some of you can agree with me on this pain. However, for those of you who can’t relate to this struggle, I need you to pay close attention to what I’m about to say. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, DO NOT PULL A BLACK PERSON’S HAIR IF YOU SEE THAT THEIR EDGES ARE SLICKED BACK OR PULLED BECAUSE MOST LIKELY THEY JUST GOT THEIR HAIR DONE IN A PROTECTIVE STYLE AND THE FUZZ THAT USUALLY GROWS AFTER A FEW DAYS TO RELIEVE THEM OF THE PAIN FROM THE TIGHTNESS HAS NOT YET SUBSIDED.

For example, when someone pulls your braids because they think it looks nice and bouncy,you just want to give them that side-eye like Rasputia did to Norbit when she thought he moved her car seat up. However the only difference here is we usually don’t want to say ” how you doing“, we honestly want to say, ” what the hell is wrong with you, can’t you see my braids are still tight“.

You may be asking what is Porosity to begin with. Porosity determines how well your hair takes on or absorbs water. It also refers to how open or close the cuticle layer of your hair is. This can be something that is giving to you genetically and changes as a result of heat or chemical damage.

Just think about it, your hair is like a vegetable garden. If you have a green thumb and know how to care for it then the veggies will grow and sprout. But if you don’t know what you’re doing and you continue to neglect it or guess on how to take of care it then it will never reach its fullest potential causing it to die.

You may be asking what is Porosity, to begin with. Porosity determines how well your hair takes on or absorbs water. Depending on how permeable or absorbent your hair is, this will be the deciding factor on if your hair texture classifies as high, low, or medium porosity. In addition to that, it also refers to how open or close the cuticle layer of your hair is. This is very important to know especially when you are creating your own DIY products or purchasing products from other brands.

The same reasoning can be applied to your hair when you know your porosity type.
