But what about items? Do I need to replace all of my bathroom cabinet pieces? “People have very fine strands of hair that get wet fast if you have high porosity. You want products that aren’t too heavy and don’t weigh down your hair,” says Roberts.

“Mostly, fine-textured hair is high porous, which means nothing too heavy or dry. You want to keep it moisturized but not with any products that are irritating.”

According to experts, “repair or bond maintenance shampoos” should be used to wash hair without drying it out, as well as conditioners with oils for their moisture sealing qualities that will keep hair softer for longer. Vicky also warns individuals with high porosity hair types to beware of using hair oils in an effort to retain moisture.
