    I have low porosity hair- protein sensitive... and I am told that I should still do Rice Cleanse just dilute with water as it is SOO beneficial- thoughts? I was also wondering if the Gelatin Treatment is beneficial for Low porosity Hair (my curl is 3A)

    I need help. My scalp itches from my low porosity, sulfatefree shampoo. Even in one or two shampoos but I lost major curl. My curl was pencil curls but I was itchy so I washed with standard shampoo and my scalp stopped itching. I even tried using the shMpoo very vigorously on scalp thinking I needed to do more work since shampoo wasn’t doing it. I feel like giving up over scalp itch.

    do you have a complete like ideal routine for low porosity hair?? like what you do everyday, in your wash day, or something more special you do like a live in or a mask, even stylers.

      I don’t have a full routine on low porosity :( and now my porosity has changed due to bleaching.

    Hello! I have wavy - curly hair that's thick and my hair is always frizzy, and I live in a very dry and high - elevation area
    What do you recommend?

  • Christine Roos

    Hey there, I have a question about my 2b low porosity hair. I do get build-up easily and therefor I use shampoo to get rid of that. I am not sure though if I am using a "clarifying" one or a "low-poo", and am I right to think that there is a difference between these two? I am using Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion at this moment and I combine this with the Shea Moisture Low Porosity Conditioner. Can someone help a wavy girl out? Is this combination good enough for low porosity hair? :)

      My mom used to tell me to use cold water to rinse and it never helped

    • C Rodriguez
      C Rodriguez 4 months ago +5

      No they're right...warm water closes follicles and since low porosity is harder to absorb products warm water is better

    • Nikolaus Tuscani
      Nikolaus Tuscani 5 months ago

      It’s the opposite. Please don’t give advice again.

    • Amy Woods
      Amy Woods 10 months ago +13

      @Rachel Day it closes the hair follicle and doesn't allow your moisture-based styling products to penetrate the hair. I use warm water to wash and rinse my hair. I tried using cold water and always got terrible results. My products seemed to sit on the surface of my hair.

    Loved this video. Can you do a review on Shea Moisture low porosity line? I haven't seen very many white girls review this product. I have been using the line for about a month with great results. Would like to see what you think.

    If you have a sensitive scalp like I do (I can only use Wen now, any other brands leave my scalp, itchy, flaky, and inflamed), I would suggest an apple cider vinegar product. Amazon carries a line that is pretty good and a little goes a long way!

    Can girls with non girly low porosity hair use deva curl?

    • The Glam Belle
      The Glam Belle  Year ago

      sure, I don't see why not! But since they are formulated for curls they might be a bit heavy on straight hair depending on which products you purchase.

    Hi there, thanks for great info. I’m a 2b wavy with low porosity and thick hair density. I live in a highly humid/hot wether environment and my main issue is frizzy flyaways that’s form an aura around my hair. I started using deep conditioning and the shine is amazing but the flyaways just love me 😳 what do you recommend to ease the frizz?

    • Mariana lima carvalhana meneses
      Mariana lima carvalhana meneses Year ago +4

      Also looking for products with a lower level of glycerin might help, so that your hair doesn’t get overly hydrated since glycerin draws moisture in and you live in a humid environment

    • Maria Aguirre

      The Glam Belle thanks for the top 👍🏻 I’ll definitely will try that one

    • The Glam Belle
      The Glam Belle  Year ago +1

      for hot humid climates I feel like gel is your best friend. It will help give the hair extra hold and protection from the humidity. something like ouidads heat and humidity gel would be a great one to try.

    Use Deluded baking soda and water on my roots and then I mix a apple cider vinegar with water and spray that all over works great and I do that once a week

    I just recently realized I have low porosity hair, I have baby fine strands so the water test doesn't work well for me, but I am pretty sure I finally have an answer! my hair is endlessly dry and hates protien! I have such a hard time getting moisture into it...ugh. I agree my hair looks best when I use shampoo, assuming it's due to build up, but my hair is fuller and bouncy on shampoo days! I use matrix hydrosource because everything else seems to drying for me! I agree no one size fits all, unfortunately. My hair can also handle a heavier conditioner...even though you wouldn't think so! I have cut out protien and try to avoid silicone, my hair is sooo much better, actually feels soft ( for my hair that is) for the first time....ever!
    So happy to have found channels like yours, you have helped me sooo much! Hairdressers around here just don't seem to understand curly hair, not to mention difficult curly hair!

    • The Glam Belle
      The Glam Belle  Year ago +2

      I know how difficult it is to find stylist that really understand curly hair! Honestly, if it wasn’t for RU-clip I probably still wouldn’t have embraced my natural texture and learned how to manage it! Thank goodness for videos like these! :) i’m just so happy to be able to pay it forward and help others to learn how to embrace and love their curls too!

  • Ginger Cameron Ford Crouch

    And yes please do a video on the build up buster devacurl line if you haven't already if I'm haven't seen it so not sure if you have done it already or not I don't know how old this is!

  • Ginger Cameron Ford Crouch

    Trying to find more curly girl girls with my hair properties I know you have low porosity hair now but what are your other hair properties thickness and density and curl type and all? So now I figured out why my hair doesn't really keep its curl Co washing doesn't really do much for low porosity hair I have low pooed a few times to get out build up but I guess I'm going to have to do it more often then I thought I love as I am cowash oh my gosh I don't know if I can leave it the only thing is there's no I like to use as I am product line so and they don't have a regular rinse out conditioner all they have is a leave-in and there are curly girl friendly line they have a rinse out in there or Lux line but I don't think it's curly girl friendly and they also have a deep conditioning which I know you can't use that as a regular leave in so I'm sorry for all them rattling off here putting my thoughts down here trying to find a curly girl that matches my hairstyle and my hair needs by finding hair properties that match thank you you have beautiful hair and beautiful curls!

      where did you find the Cantu ACV rinse?

    • The Glam Belle
      The Glam Belle  Year ago

      My hair is low porosity, and about medium density I’d say. You are exactly right...with low porosity it’s better to cleanse more :) and I actually find that doing clarifying treatments more often than not with low porosity makes a huge difference. Cantu’s acv rinse or devacurl buildup buster are my go to’s :)

    So do you feel that Deva Curl products are a little heavy for low porosity hair?

    • The Glam Belle
      The Glam Belle  Year ago +3

      Believe it or not I feel like they work great, for mine anyway. But I also notice that my hair likes heavier products. Low porosity is not one size fits all so I always recommend trying different things out to see what works for you.

    Thanks for this! I am low porosity and protein sensitive. I would love to know what products you use on a regular basis from start to finish. Or if you could do a video of products that you find work best for low porosity and protein sensitivity. I am constantly reading ingredients but hearing what you have had success with over time would be great! Thanks again for doing this! 👍🏻💖

    I love Buildup buster! I have low porosity hair and stay away from sulfates, silicone etc. but I'm new to protein sensitivity. I don't think I am because I've never had to pay attention to what protein is in the products I use but I'm wondering if it's causing a lot of my build up.

    Great video love! Definitely helpful! I think I have low porosity hair I have to do the strand test for sure. I use two leave in conditioners and stay away from the creams because I could never find one that doesn’t way my hair down. I like you love the buildup buster and use it whenever I go oil crazy lol. xoxo
