“So, let’s just first even talk about the anatomy. Let’s do a little autopsy on hair. You pluck out your hair; that poor hair follicle is dead. So, we’re gonna do a little autopsy now - a little hair follicle autopsy.” (02:45) (Dr. Brian)
“The whole concept of porosity has to do with how much moisture your hair can absorb and retain. So if it’s low porosity, it means that your hair physically cannot get moisture in it.” (03:08) (Dr. Brian)
“You can’t necessarily change your porosity. It’s usually due to genetics. But, I think it’s a good idea to test your hair just to see because there are certain things you can do to manage your hair based on if you have high, medium, or low porosity.” (05:55) (Dr. Brian)
“There’s certain things you can do, real quick, for low porosity hair. Apply protein-free conditioners when your hair is already wet. Look for glycerin and honey in products like shampoos or conditioners and apply heat to help absorb the moisture.” (09:33) (Dr. Brian)
