By . - Friday, January 15, 2021

If low porosity hair is what you have, these are the natural oils you want in your regimen. Give them a try and see which one best suits your hair.

Grapeseed oil

Grapeseed oil strengthens the hair and is great as a heat protectant when used with another heat protectant. It can be used alone as a hot oil treatment or in combination with other oils without leaving the hair oily afterward. It works well as a sealant and leaves hair shiny without all that yucky greasiness.

Argan oil

If it’s shine that you’re looking for, argan oil is the best oil for this. It aids in hair growth, hydrates the hair and increases the elasticity of the hair which in turn prevents breakage. Oh, and let’s not forget…it makes the hair soft.

Jojoba oil

This is another light oil that can be used to seal the ends or oil the scalp – it aids in combatting dandruff or a dry scalp. It also promotes hair growth and regulates sebum production on the scalp.

Apricot oil

Apricot oil has anti-inflammatory properties and gives a soothing cooling effect. It moisturises the hair and scalp and keeps moisture in the hair and scalp which is something you definitely want if you have low porosity hair, not to mention it works well as a sealant.

Pomegranate oil

Pomegranate oil is another great oil for dry hair as it works to bring it back to life. It’s rich in vitamins and antioxidants that make it perfect for increasing blood circulation in the scalp. It also aids in reducing build-up on the scalp, an attribute that makes it just right for low porosity hair, plus it is non-greasy and leaves the hair smelling pleasant. Oh, and it is said to be a good heat protectant as well.

Sweet almond oil

This sweet smelling oil is good for moisturising the hair as it works to replenish the hair. It keeps the hair from falling out, penetrates the hair shaft and works great as a sealant and hair protector. It is also great for dry or damaged hair as it packs it with all the good stuff that allows it to revive.

Hemp seed oil

Want soft hair? This is another great oil just for that. Hemp seed oil helps preserve the natural texture of the hair, not to mention it prevents water loss and adds moisture. It also conditions and strengthens the hair and prevents dryness.
